Margo: Are you there yet?
Me: No, I saw you ten minutes ago
The journey to Brighton took an hour by train, and then a taxi ride out to the business premises. Red &
Black based their headquarters in a mansion, in the middle of nowhere. Brighton was filled with the same
looking houses as mine. Four and five storey houses, on terraced streets. If they were anything like mine,
the homes used to have whole families living in them two hundred years ago but now were split into flats.
When I gave the address to the taxi driver, he told me it would be a half hour drive and to get
Driving along the gravel path to the mansion and across the car park, my mouth was open with awe at the
architecture of the old building. Maybe in my previous life, I lived in the 1800s and owned a house like
mine when it was brand new. They drew me in, fascinated me to the point I wanted to scour every inch
of the place. I’d hoped to find a hidden box of letters in my house and discover a mystery from years
gone by, but never did.
I paid the driver and stood looking up at the large windows, craning my neck back, scanning the rooms
and the gargoyles that protected the building. A woman waved from the window to my left, she had a
handsome man stood to her right who nodded in my direction. It was difficult to tell who they were as
the sun glinted off the leaded windows. I waved back and ducked in through the main door to reception.
“I’m here to meet with Erin Devlin, my name is Leia Bryant,” I said to the girl behind the desk.
“I know who you are, Ms Bryant, I’m a big fan. It’s great that you agreed to the meeting, I hope you say
yes to what they’re proposing,” the young girl said.
Her nose ring glinted in the overhead light, making her nose look cute. She rounded the desk where I
could see her short blue tartan over thick white tights. I was sweltering in my light jacket, I couldn’t
imagine how warm she would be in her thick roll neck white jumper. It was April but felt like summer.
“I’m Becky, if you need anything at all while you’re here, let me know,” she said over her shoulder.
Leading the way through the corridors, we passed recording studios and what sounded like a kitchen.
Turning the corner, I was met with a glass-walled meeting room. On one side of the glass table sat four
very recognisable faces. I was only expecting to meet with Erin.
Becky held the door open for me to walk through and left me standing on the other side.
“Hi,” I said.
My meek voice betraying the intimidation I felt.
I was a massive fan of Fragile and to see two of the band members on the other side of the table. Shaking
their hands felt surreal. Seb introduced me to his fiancé, Tara, who looked heavily pregnant, and I greeted
Erin last.
“I wasn’t expecting to see all four of you, I’m delighted to meet you all,” I said in a more firm tone.
“We thought we would come in numbers to persuade you to say yes,” Erin offered first.
Grateful for the glass and a pitcher of water, I poured myself a drink and listened to their idea. Erin
wasted no time telling me their plan and when she finished, there was a hushed silence for a few moments
until Tara groaned. Seb immediately checked she wasn’t going into labour and then stood behind Tara to
rub her shoulders. While I watched the love dance back and forth between them, I felt a spike of envy. I
had given up any hope of finding a decent man to marry, spending too many years on the road and never
in one city for longer than a week. Having a holiday was a luxury. There was always another sought-aftermodelling job that I knew would dry up one day. I figured I would sleep when my contracts stopped.
Now that I had the chance to take time off, the hottest record label in music was offering me a starring
role in a music video for Maverick. I was to be Donovan’s love interest, a story that spanned eighty years
in a six-minute video. My first thought was that Margo would be pissed off when she found out what they
expected me to do with Dreamboat Donovan. I hoped she forgave me because I was saying yes to this job.
Me: They want me to kiss Donovan
Margo: SAY YES
“How far along are you, Tara?” I asked to distract my attention away from my overzealous sister and her
constant stream of GIFs of pop video kisses.
“I’m due any minute, it could happen at any moment, Leia. The twins are kicking the hell out of my
bladder, and I will give them their first telling off as soon as I give birth. I swear they already know how
to bicker and fight like proper siblings.”
I laughed at her comment, nodding.
“I have six siblings, I can relate.”
“Six,” Seb said. “Don’t get any ideas,” his comment was aimed at Tara.
“You know how babies are made, right?”

National Cheese Curd Day Fun Facts

Did you know Monday October 15 is National Cheese Curd Day?  Wisconsin cheese curd makers do.  Have you ever had the tasty, cheesy, squeaky snack before?  Yes I said squeaky.  The texture of the cheese has a signature squeak when chomping down on these tasty morsels.  Since I’m trying to do the keto diet, these are yummy snacks I can actually have! Here’s some more fun facts about Wisconsin cheese curds you  might not know:

  1. Milk it Up: Wisconsin cheese curds get their fresh flavor from top-quality Wisconsin milk. It takes 10 pounds of milk to make one pound of cheese.

  1. Wait, So What is a Cheese Curd? A cheese curd is young cheddar. Instead of growing up into an aged block of cheese, they are separated from the whey during the cheesemaking process, leaving behind a solid curd of cheese that has a milky flavor. They give you an eye into the magic of cheesemaking, since all cheese starts by separating the curds from the whey.

  1. The Snack that Squeaks: Fresh cheese curds will make a squeaky sound as you bite into them, but why? The elastic protein strands in the curds rub against the enamel of your teeth to create that characteristic sound.

  1. Fresh is Best: The “squeak” is also a sign of curd freshness. And by fresh we mean they were made less than two days ago.

  1. No Curd Left Behind: If you don’t eat all of your curds within two days, you can restore the squeak by microwaving them for a few seconds. (You are also blessed with immaculate impulse control.)

  1. Variety is the Spice of Life: Cheese curds can be white or yellow because they are typically made from white or yellow cheddar cheese, and they come in many flavors. Aside from the traditional cheddar curds or occasional muenster curds, you can also find fresh cheese curds in flavors like garlic, spicy Cajun, taco or mild ranch.

  1. Curd Lover’s Dreams Come True: There’s an entire festival dedicated to cheese curds where you can celebrate, admire and eat Wisconsin cheese curds.

  1. Cheese Law: You must have a license to make cheese in Wisconsin and Wisconsin is the only place outside of Europe where you can pursue an elite Master Cheesemaker certification (which takes approximately 13 years). You’ll find some of the very best curds in Wisconsin.

  1. Curd Ambassador: Culver’s, the popular Wisconsin-based restaurant is the unofficial cheese curd ambassador, selling millions of their infamous fried curds a year.

  1. Taking Bets: It’s near impossible to eat less than five Wisconsin cheese curds, the cheesy goodness is addicting- you’ve been warned!

***Still hungry to learn more? For more information, check


Wondering How Fresh Wisconsin Cheese Curds Made?  Here’s the 9 Steps:


Step 1: Each day insulated tanker trucks pick up top quality milk from Wisconsin dairy farms which is delivered to cheese plants.

Step 2: Milk is carefully tested, weighed and heated, or pasteurized.

Step 3: Milk is pumped into a large vat. Rennet, starter cultures and enzymes are added. They thicken the milk and give it the desired cheese flavor.

Step 4: Next, the cheesemakers begin cutting the custard-like milk into tiny pieces. This separates the liquid, called whey, from milk solids, called curd.

Step 5: The curd and whey are stirred and cooked until the curd reaches just the right amount of firmness for the type of cheese to be made.

Step 6: The whey is drained and saved for other uses.

Step 7: Depending on the types of cheese to be made, the curd is cut and specially handled by the cheesemaker.

Step 8: The matted curd is milled in small bite-size pieces.

Step 9: The curd is salted, stirred and packaged.

Poohsticks Bridge Book Tour & Giveaway


The Birch Twins
Romantic Fiction
as a childhood game, Poohsticks Bridge tells the sweet story of a
friendship between two children that, through the years, blossoms
into adult love with an unbreakable bond and faith in one another.
John and Melissa are tested throughout their lives by hardships,
pain, and separation, yet their love and determination to live life
together to its fullest never falters. In today’s culture of having
everything, this couple shows us how a few, simple things can lead to
a satisfying and fulfilling life. 



in the extreme, you’ll want to keep the tissues nearby. These two
will make you laugh, cry, and fall in love … with life and with


write under the name “The Birch Twins.” Helen, my twin, didn’t
live to see life, and so I write for her. I’m a full time poverty
stricken doll artist who took to writing as I seemed to spend more
time writing out little back stories for the characters I created. My
first book The Life of LOL was written in five weeks, and was about
gangsters, grifters and drifters. Lots of cartoon slapstick violence
mixed with a serious message.
Poohsticks Bridge, the
new novel, shows my twin’s voice at is strongest as it tells the
story of a little boy who begins to grow up lonely and alone, until
he meets a little girl. It’s a glimpse of a life that Helen and I
could have had together. She writes through me, I can feel her
presence and hear her voice. Her tone is often wistful, low on
movement, mature and often quiet, while I am brash and loud and full
of silly car chases and boyhood dreams of rockets to the moon. We
have the perfect writing partnership.
2003, November.
“For always.”
Lola had liked it, and it hadn’t been long before things had been finalised, and Melissa and John
adopted Lola as their own little girl. It had all suddenly come back.
Lola had gotten off the bus as normal, at the bottom of the driveway on Decatur road. It was
cold, and although Momma Melissa had made Lola promise to wear her mittens and scarf, they
were stuffed in her bag. Odd though that Momma Melissa hadn’t met her on the drive like she
normally did. The car was there. As she got near the house, there was a note pinned to the
“Lola,” it read. “Come to Poohsticks. Surprise. Momma.”
Lola dropped her little schoolbag and trotted off to the bottom of the garden. She hoped
Momma was ok. The two of them had been ok without John, but it had been weird. She knew
Momma Melissa had been upset sometimes. Lola could always tell. Momma Melissa usually
gave her extra cuddles when she felt sad, or arranged lots of activities for them. Lola didn’t
mind. She was sad that daddy John was going to die. He was nice, but it was typical of her luck.
She’d finally found people who liked her, and one of them died pretty much straight away. Lola
kicked through the leaves as she made her way to Poohsticks. At first, she’d been closer to
Mommie Melissa. She smiled a beautiful smile, and hugged her tight. Daddy John hugged her
too, and smiled. But at first Lola had been a bit scared of him. Like he was fierce of something.
Which he wasn’t. And just as she got not scared of him, he did something to the car and didn’t
come home again. What was Mommie Melissa doing down here.? She only came here with
Daddy John, and they hadn’t been here in a few months. But Lola knew the way, and pretty
soon she neared the clearing. She rounded the corner, and saw Mommie Melissa sitting in one
corner…And saw something.
Saw someone.
Someone else sat beside her.
A man.

At first, she thought it was a new boyfriend. Daddy John had died. But then she saw the black
hair, and that sideways smile, and the look in his eyes as he saw the little girl. He stood shakily.
She didn’t hear his words.
“Hey Lola,” he said softly. “Haven’t you got a kiss for your daddy?”
She flung herself across the path and into his arms. He sank to his knees and embraced the girl,
tears streaming down his face.
“I remembered you,” he said, studying her face after, at long last, their embrace had ended.
“Your little face. You kept appearing to me. My little Lola. I love you so much, my little Lola.”
Then Lola was sat between them, and they both embraced her. She was crying now, but they
were tears of happiness.
The day after, they kept Lola away from school, and played with her all day. The happy day
began at seven thirty, when, deep in contented slumber, John and Melissa were awakened by a
happy little girl begging to be allowed into their bed. They relented, and she nestled down
between her adopted mummy and daddy happily. But she was too excited to sleep.
“Sing me the song, Daddy,” she said looking into John’s face.
John’s mind was a blank, and he thought hard to try to remember it.
“Lola honey,” began Melissa. “He doesn’t…”
“It’s ok,” said John touching his wife’s arm gently, “I’ll figure it out. There’s something there in
the back of my head. Let’s just see if it’s the right one.”
Lola propped herself up John’s chest and watched anxiously as John thought. There was only
one song in his head, right there at the back of his mind. He watched his daughter and began
to sing.
“Oh give me a home…” he began.
Lola closed her eyes with pleasure. He’d remembered.
“Where the buffalo roams,” he continued softly. “And the deer and the antelope play.”
“You remembered,” said Melissa, squeezing his arm.
“Can I continue the song?” he asked, a gentle smile playing across his face. They nodded.

“Where seldom is heard,” he sang watching the little girl’s eyes as they studied him. “A
discouraging word. Come on honey, join in”
“And the skies are not cloudy all day,” they all sang together.
They lay there singing Home on the Range till gone nine. At just after ten, sitting in the leaky
kitchen with the collapsed roof eating breakfast, a knock came on the door. Lola jumped down
from her stool at the breakfast bar, but John held her arm.
“No honey,” he said. “Finish up your breakfast. The man of the house is home now. Let me
answer my own front door. It’s been a while.”
Melissa watched him as he grabbed his walker and edged his way to the door. The knock came
again. Bell must be burnt out again, she thought. She added it to her mental list of jobs to do.
In the hall, her husband had reached the door, and opened it. There was a woman standing
there, slight of frame, with pulled back dark hair. She was wearing a uniform, all black with a
logo on it that John didn’t recognise
