PERSONAL UPDATE: A writer’s life in the countryside

LUSCIOUS LIVING: A writer's life in the country

 

Luscious Lifers, new posts are once again largely on hold as I finally, finally, finally try to get back to focussing on writing my books after many months of upheaval re: our house move (back) to Red Hill, and some other personal bits and pieces.

Fortunately, it’s the first day of Spring here on the Mornington Peninsula, so hopefully the sunnier days and blossoming gardens will help get me back on track too. If you’d like to see some snippets from the new house, do scroll through my Instagram pix.

Most days, I’m doing some cooking (expanding my low carb, ketogenic diet options), taking Mabel for a walk or game in the surrounding countryside, learning French and playing tennis. After years of corporate work, it’s absolute bliss to have this freedom, and I can’t thank Mr Luscious enough for supporting my creative endeavours. I am so very lucky and very happy.

I’ve now got five books on the go, at various stages of completion, including a literary murder mystery, a French travel guide, and an attempt at humour. Slowly but surely, I hope they will all find their way to those of you who are interested.

If you’re craving something luscious to inspire you whilst I potter around behind the scenes, please consider going back to the archives on the blog via the Photo Galleries tab, or browse through the myriad boards on Pinterest. For something new, remember to check out Facebook and Instagram where it’s easier for me to post more regularly.

Thank you for all your ongoing support of my little Luscious venture!

LUSCIOUS NEWS: Technical update

Hi Luscious Lifers,

Unfortunately we’re experiencing some technical issues so some of the Luscious site won’t be working properly for you, including the Luscious Shop. It is very, very annoying and copious amounts of coffee and chocolate may be consumed in the process.

Thanks for your patience!
