Tell us all about you and your writing!!
Once upon a time I was a singer songwriter, but since having kids I foiund that writing stories fits in better with my lifestyle. Now I’m addicted to novel writing and generally have 2 or 3 projects on the go. I’ve published 3 titles so far:

Hidden (Marchwood Vampire Series #1)

Thicker Than Blood (Marchwood Vampire Series #2)

Outside – a post apocalyptic novel (Outside Series #1)



Any new releases that we should be watching for?
I’m about to publish A SHIRTFUL OF FROGS, a children’s adventure that adults will enjoy too. But I’m also writing Book 3 of my MARCHWOOD VAMPIRE SERIES and Book 2 of OUTSIDE, my post-apocalyptic series.


Do you have a website?  If so, what’s the link?
Yep, I have a blog with extracts from my books. And I love to showcase other authors on it with interviews and giveaways. http://www.shaliniboland.co.uk
