My three children have all gone back to school and it's the start of a new year which to many of us means the possibility of new beginnings. My latest novel, Beat the Drum, is tucked away in a bottom drawer before its final edit and so it's time to start a new writing project. And so this is why I find myself sitting in front of a cosy fire (it's freezing outside!) with a new notebook on my knee in the hope that a new idea will pop into my head out of the ether. Wish me luck...
