"It's always the ugly . . ." Bea would love to like Rodger - the problem is he's just so ugly . . .
Kate's BLOG JULY 22nd
What makes today's society value beauty to the extent that it does?
Even those who are rich and famous feel ugly inside, doing all sorts of weird things to their appearance.
But perhaps beauty itself can become a tremendous burden. And ugliness hide a wonderful person underneath.
I am an identical twin. That means when my sister and I were born, no one could tell us apart. Our outward appearance was absolutely the same to any one who saw us (except our mother,of course).
Yet inside we are just so different.
In fact it pains me when folks say now that they can't tell who is who.
It's better to look further than the outward appearance - look at the real person beneath.

So here it is, my new Gothic comedy romance and tipped to be funnier than Blood Line. My thanks and appreciation go to Caroline Clemmons who has provided me with an AMERICAN edit. Many thanks Caroline. It is surprising the real differences between our two cultures language-wise. I wanted to say the moon looked like a silver sixpence - and was floundering with cents, dollars what have you. But Caroline set me straight.
There was also a difference in our use of the word 'squint'. ' Vive la difference' as they say en France. A wonderful expression which should be applied to more than just language.
Many, many thanks also to Kirsten Norrie who proof read and laughed at all the right places, and gave me much encouragement.
Launching this book in the next few days. See you there on Amazon kindle.
Bea Trevallis was never convinced about her Aunt Matilda's magic spells. Not, that is, until the Beautiful as the Day spell worked - and didn't wear off either.
SWORN is the first in the Moon Child series.
