I am VERY excited to announce that my novel, Keeper of Secrets, is going to be published by Firefly Press in September 2021. It's got SNOW in it (hooray!), a mystery, a courageous girl risking everything for an animal in danger, and a wintry, Christmassy ending. Here's the gorgeous cover by talented artist Becky Thorns:

Getting a novel published has always been my dream. Perhaps yours is similar, or it could be something completely different. But things don't always happen easily. I have been working towards this goal for many years and have faced a lot of setbacks along the way. Sometimes I thought it would never happen - that my work wasn't good enough, that I didn't have the talent, that things just wouldn't go my way. But when I signed with my agent, the first thing I saw when I came out of her office was this word: PERSEVERE.

It means, to keep going, keep trying, even when things are difficult. And even if they don't work out as you expected, you have trained yourself to be stronger for the next challenge.

Fantastic to hear your great news, Sarah. Perseverance is a writers best friend as it's a lonely life.
