After an earlier career spent working and travelling around the world, including stints as cook on an outback cattle station, interpreter on expedition in Cameroon and English teacher in Jakarta, Pamela stumbled into writing as a way of funding a PhD in Medieval Studies. Settling at last in York, for several years she combined academic research with a successful career as a romance writer. Her thesis on the streets of later medieval and early modern York was finally completed in 2004 and she continues to work (very slowly) on a scholarly edition of the wardmote court records that formed the basis of her research. The Memory of Midnight is her second novel based on her study of Elizabethan York and written under her real name.

I have been 'on retreat' at home all week, working on revisions to THE CURSED WIFE, which has meant no going out for coffee or drinks and no fun at all, but all worth it now as the revised mss is back with my editor - phew! - and I have poured myself this G&T because it's Friday and I deserve it! Have a good weekend, all.

Always wary of becoming a crazy cat lady, but this gave me a much-needed smile this morning. As long as there are peacefully sleeping kittens, things can't be too bad ...

Am in London for a couple of days, keeping various plates spinning and itinerary like rerun of Georgette Heyer: St James's Street, Green Park, St George's Hanover Square ... and now at Royal Academy in Piccadilly. London at its best!

Frustrating week, but today went for lovely restorative walk in Harkfall woods near Grewelthorpe today and back through seas of wheat, so now feeling much less fraught about everything. Walking works every time (though sunshine always helps). What restores you?
