9th December

Ack, it’s the weekend and there’s no one around but me to tell you what happening today! (The picture is a clue to the whereabouts of the missing Diana, btw!)

It’ll have to be brief, I’m still working on a book that is turning out to be the biggest “pineapple” in the world. Two chapters to go and not an ending in sight…

Anyway, the winner of the book behind the 7th December door in the Advent Calendar, A NANNY FOR KEEPS, is Joanne from Lincoln. The book is on it’s way, Joanne. I do hope you enjoy it.

Today the book behind the door is AND MOTHER MAKES THREE. This has a special place in my heart as it was the first of my books to be released retail in the US. Until then they'd only be available to subscribers to the Book Club. And it received a Gold Medal review from Romantic Times. Pretty much perfect, in fact.

I was inspired to write this by something my mother said when she was godmother to a little girl called Lisa. She already had older sisters called Linda and Lesley and my mother shook her head and said "That'll cause trouble when they're older..." All those Miss L .... Of course in those days mail came through the letterbox -- as it still did when I wrote the book.

For a chance to win this book just send me an email at liz, with Day Nine in the subject line and your name and address in the body. No question today -- it's Sunday, the day of rest -- but if you haven't already received the first chapter of Diana's story, just say, and I'll send you that as a little taster.

You are so right, Liz. I have the same initial as my father and it caused me no end of misery when I was little that letters addressed to J.surname were always for him and not for me!
