The freedom to invent my own country in Rosara was amazing. Much as I loved writing about it, I wouldn't want to live in a desert land. England is such a place of contrasts, my heart will always be here. At the moment we're creeping out from under the worst winter we've had for years, but the sight of early spring flowers like snowdrops, aconites and witch hazel is a lovely contrast to all the gloom. Just like reading romance!
