The start of my Christmas…

The secret Santa pile was all book-shaped. No surprise there.

It’s that time of the year again – and for me, Christmas officially started with the Romantic Novelists’ Association London and South East chapter Christmas Lunch.

Why? Because Christmas is all about family and friends. It’s about the people we care about – and the people who care about us. That’s who these people are to me. They are my extended family. Friends who stick together through good times and bad. Friends who share our journeys.

So this week – I’m just going to let the pictures talk about this wonderful group of which I am honoured to be a member.
