Many thanks Lucie, for providing such a great review on Amazon! I’m so thrilled that you enjoyed the Faithful experience.

Faithful is the first in the series of a ‘Mid-life crisis’ and as you can see, in more detail below, Lucie has said, ‘Faithful was entertaining and fun to read. The characters in the story are engaging, clever and funny. I like and highly recommend this book. I look forward to the sequel.”

I guarantee you’ll be hooked!

Fidelity, the second book in the series – delving deeper into Steve Clarke’s’ past, is due for release soon.

We linger for a while, our happiness so very fertile; a selection of micro-poetry. X

Friends,

I was recently asked, “Can you describe your book in 3 words? #morningchallenge :-)))”
Well I replied, “Yes @smileylms FAITHFUL is;”
F-antastical
U-adulterated
N-aughty
Well that’s actually four words creatively arranged!
I’m brimming over with inspiration and creativity.  I write poetry, lyrics and short stories, so please drop by again soon.
The following’s a selection of my ‘micro-poetry’ which I tweet regularly.

We met by chance through tweeting
Befriended without a meeting
We read and write for a while
Returning to our busy lives
With a smile
XOX
Another day another sun
For time will wait for none
Tis a fresh new week
For friendship we seek
Lower one’s strife
For a healthier life
XOX
Climbing from the mire
Looking to the spire
Reaching out
And inspire!
XOX
Smiles 🙂
Travel miles
Linger for a while
Happiness, so fertile
An email, tweet or a dial
Go on! Give me a smile

Thanks to Voracious_Steve, I’ll never look at my car the same way again…

Sweet honey blonde, with lips like plums – ripe for the picking…

Do you know men who fantasise? Maybe you fantasise yourself? Maybe like me, you’re suffering from a mid-life crisis?

Or do you suspect a fantasist? Is he really staying late to finish a report? Do you really know his secretary that well? How do they behave at the Christmas part – too familiar maybe or is it just the drink talking?

Do you, all to often, dismiss the excuses…?

Extracted, with pleasure, from Chapter 3 – My first glimpse of Annabelle.

Suddenly, the front door opens, just a crack, but releasing gallons of emotions, torrents of tears and pent up frustration, gushing out over the lawn and smacking me around the face with a soul-stirring tsunami.

As I wipe the Faithful family’s sorrow from my eyes, I catch my first glimpse of Annabelle – not the black widow I was expecting, but a vision of loveliness wrapped up, like a fancy gift, in a sheer summer dress. Her dignity saved by a bold print of large crimson-yellow sunflowers, strategically placed over the cotton garment, creased like crepe paper, hugging her mid-term bump and stretched over her enhanced double dee breasts. Her sweet honey blonde, flowing naturally over slender shoulders, with lips like plums – ripe for the picking and the sweet enticing scent of ‘Euphoria’ brought to me by the hazy heat wave…

Faithful is available for download on Amazon Kindle, dig into my blog for some very good reviews. Why not purchase a copy for yourself it’s enlightening and entertaining.

Fidelity, my second adventure in the series, will be coming soon!

I gaze lustfully at my sexy reversing assistant, in her scarlet lingerie, still sprawled out over the back seat.

Welcome back fellow readers, authors and fantasists, are you enjoying the ride of your life; on my roller coaster of a mid-life crisis?

How many men to you know who fantasise? Do you? Or do you suspect someone who does? Is your / his secretary really a blonde-bombshell, coming on to you / him at every opportunity, or is she really just suffering from a similar mid-life crisis? Certainly not flashing her cleavage or sticking her arse out when picking up something from the floor? It’s probably be just your imagination or is it..?

Extracted, with pleasure, from Chapter 2 – Vigorous vibrations

As I rehearse my introduction, tightening my tie in the rear view mirror, taking in deep breaths of Olga’s honey and vanilla fragrance and convincing what’s left of the greying hair to cover my rapidly receding hairline, I gaze lustfully at my sexy reversing assistant, in her scarlet lingerie, still sprawled out over the back seat. “Now now girls!” I intervene reprimanding Rebecca as she gives Olga a one-fingered salute.

“Sorry to hear… How you coping?” No, that’s too personal.

Guilty dulcet tones accompany a vigorous vibration from between my legs. Aw, Shirl, aw…I leave her lingering for a moment, captured on my smartphone, the photograph taken at our last Christmas party: ash-blonde highlighted with silly string, hair draped with exploded party poppers and such piercing blue eyes. She’s my rock, my terrier against telephone time wasters. “Shirley, what am I going to say?”…
