Incurably Romantic. Mildly Amoral. Terminally Single.
From noisy pub to folk club, from broken heart to new start, follow Melissa’s journey from teenager to mother via the despicable decisions and massive mistakes of her early twenties. You’ll want to shake her, you’ll want to hug her, but most of all you’ll want to know how everything turns out.
A story about frog-kissing, bed-hopping, sliding off your lily-pad with embarrassment...and croaking with joy.
What reviewers say:

‘comparable to Jill Mansell and Jane Green in terms of plot and quality’

She writes everything really, novels, poems, flash fiction, short stories, stories for children, text messages, Facebook status updates... Born but not bred in a market town in Fife, Stella's mum claims her line can be traced back to Genghis Khan via Russian Aristocracy, while her father’s grandparents were big in the Art Nouveau in Hungary at the beginning of the 20th Century. Despite the richness of this gene pool, Stella herself only appears to have inherited weak wrists, and a penchant for sitting down to write stories. Stella lives in an rural idyll with her cat, husband, and two children.
