The Americans have Landed—in London!
Some opportunities in life can't be turned down. So when I was asked to join a booksigning sponsored by Kobo #UksignKobo, I couldn't refuse. Which of course meant a trip to London!
First shock to British sensibilities came when a blonde from the west coast and myself sang along to Carly Simon's You're So Vain in the ladies room at Heathrow airport! But I must say I think I'm adapting quite well. I adore the civilized practice of stopping mid afternoon for tea. And just yesterday I heard myself comment on the peacocks at an English Manor – I believe my exact words were "Loud little buggers aren't they?" And again leaving the country shop I heard myself say, "So many lovely bibs and bobs."
I'm not completely sure but I think a bib or bob is halfway between bits and pieces and knick knacks! Of course there's a learning curve when speaking English. While I was happy as a clam to have stumbled across a pair of trousers (apparently pants are underwear in England) with a high waste at the Marks and Spencers store– Had I been English I'd have been happy as Larry. Though no one is quite sure who Larry is or why he was so happy!
All this local fun leads up to what I'm most excited about. The book signing on Friday April 17th in London. I'm honored to be signing books with fabulous bestselling authors like Jillian Dodd and HM Ward and so many others! If you're in the London area, pop in and say hello.

Just in case romance in the sun is more your style, have fun with my handsome navy heroes in my contemporary romance Aloha Series. Until next time! Cheerio !
