My lovely Mother-in-Law who came to visit us every year from Dublin, Ireland died on New Years Eve. We were with her right to the end and it was all very peaceful. She was quite old, (I’m not going to tell you how old because like many ladies of her era her age was a big secret, but she was getting up there. LOL)

She was incredibly proud of me and very supportive of my efforts to write despite having four kids. She did read some of my very early romance stuff and skipped the ‘naughty bits’ as she called them, but she enjoyed the books overall. She told everyone how great I was-how great is that? I was incredibly lucky to have known her and loved her.

Send some good thoughts and prayers to Mr Kate Pearce and our kids. They’d appreciate them- and apologies if the blog is a bit quiet over the next 2 weeks…

    Sorry to hear this Kate.
    Lucky woman to have been so appreciated by (and appreciative of) her daughter-in-law.

    I just saw this. I’m so sorry for your loss and for the pain you and your family are going through right now. If there’s anything I can possibly do to help, I hope you’ll let me know. Meantime, I’m praying for you and sending cyber casseroles your way…
