I've set up this blog so that all my friends, relations and colleagues in the world of writing can keep up to speed with what I'm doing - from now on, I'll never have to say sorry for not keeping in touch.

Or anyway, that's the plan.

You can find my novels as digital downloads on Apple iTunes, Kobo, Kindle and Nook, and most are available as print paperbacks, too.

November Book of the Month - Rosy Thornton The Tapestry of Love

Rosy Thornton's latest novel The Tapestry of Love is the story of middle-aged Catherine Parkstone, who leaves her comfortable existence in England to go and live in the Cevennes region of France.

'I gave my heroine a new career as a seamstress,' says Rosy, who went on holiday in the Cevennes twenty years ago, and never forgot the place or its fascinatingly quirky inhabitants. 'I peopled her hamlet with local farmers and endowed them with deep layers of French reserve. I gave Catherine a tapestry frame and a basket of silks and set her to work. The result was The Tapestry of Love - and it's the story of her slow-growing love affair with the place and its people.'

This is a perfect novel for dark winter evenings in front of the fire, maybe with a cat on your lap and a glass of something red and delicious close at hand!

Rosy's recipes from the Cevennes are available free via her website at http://rosythornton.com
