I am thrilled to be a part of the cover reveal for Julia Wild’s new release – The Secret Notebook.
This beautiful story will be published on 8th July 2021 by One More Chapter, Harper Collins.
When Izzie Dean’s beloved nan, Molly Blackshaw, passes away, Izzie returns to the Blackpool
bungalow where she grew up, to say goodbye once and for all. When Izzie’s homecoming reunites
her with her first love, Justin Swift, every emotion that Izzie has repressed since the day he broke her
heart comes rushing to the surface. But then an unexpected discovery changes everything.
Between the pages of the battered secret diary Molly kept during WWII, Izzie discovers a story of
love, heartbreak, and the incomparable hardship of life in a world at war. Reading her
grandmother’s words soon puts her own story into perspective, and suddenly Izzie realises that the
only thing holding her back from happiness, might be herself. Now she just has to convince Justin
that they deserve a second chance at forever…

About the Author
Lancashire born, I moved to Bedfordshire in the late seventies, married and started a family. I’m a past Hon Sec of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, have been a member since 1993 when I joined their New Writers’ Scheme as a probationer. That came about after winning a week’s historical writing course on the strength of the first chapter of my third Poldark-era romance. The tutor on the last day loved the story and handed me details of the Romantic Novelists’ Association – she said I absolutely must join as they would be able to help me towards publication.
Some four years later my first published book, Dark Canvas, won the RNA’s New Writer’s Award in 1997, the sixth, Illusions, won the RNA’s Romance Prize in 2003.
After working in the local library service for 18 years, during library cut-backs I took the leap to become self-employed as a writer and worked on releasing my backlist as eBooks for Kindle.
Most recently, I’ve had the pleasure of working with amazing Charlotte Ledger when she pulled me from the writing wilderness and have now signed a three-book deal with One More Chapter.
