Goodbye Poldark!

Rena George Cornwall, Fiction, Poldark, Uncategorized 2 Comments

Poldark has come to an end. We left Ross and Demelza sharing a passionate embrace as a spectacular expanse of ocean glinted in the background. These weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster for viewers of the BBC series as our charismatic couple were plunged into one disastrous event after another. And now we must all wait until next year to discover what happens next. The end of the current ten week series reminded me that I have not posted on …

Flying the Flag for Cornwall

Rena George Cornwall, Crime Fiction 2 Comments

You know me, any excuse to wax lyrical about Cornwall. The fact that the county has just been voted the UK’s favourite holiday destination for the SEVENTH time by the British Travel Awards is a definite reason to once again celebrate this gorgeous corner of England. If you’ve never been there, or (like me) are a regular visitor and suffering withdrawal symptoms because you’re not actually there at the moment, then here are a few images to wet your appetite. …

Can You Bake a Cornish Pasty? You Can Now…

Rena George Cornwall 4 Comments

  They have a saying in Cornwall that a good diet is having a Cornish pasty in both hands. And when they’re as tasty as the one above then who would disagree? In the interest of research, over many years of visiting Cornwall, I’ve eaten a lot of pasties. Well…you have to, don’t you? Anyway, after all this dedicated tasting business I can report that the bestest EVER pasty comes from Ann’s Pasty Bakehouse (like the one above did)  on …

Christmas, Murder – and a Cornish Obsession!

Rena George Cornish Crime Series, Cornwall, Crime Fiction 6 Comments

 *Available here for a limited time at the introductory download price of 77p.   This lovely house in Marazion is where we stay when we go to Cornwall. Right next to it is the little cottage where Loveday Ross, the main character in my Cornish mystery series, lives. You won’t be able to see it because it only exists in my books, but it’s there all right. There are rabbits on the lawn, and the cottage looks out over a …

And now for the editing bit …

Rena George Cornish Crime Series, Cornwall, Writing It 2 Comments

This week I’m giving a sneak preview of the gorgeous cover for my soon to be published new Kindle novel, A Cornish Obsession. I love it, and I hope that you will. The artist who designs all my covers is absolutely brilliant, but I think he has excelled himself this time. Thank you, Craig. My original plan was to keep my head down and get on with the final edits of this latest book in my Cornish Crime Series, but …

Poldark for Valentine’s Day

Rena George Cornwall, Poldark 7 Comments

I’m celebrating Valentine’s Day by posting once again about my most favourite romantic hero, the darkly brooding Ross Poldark (as played by the wonderful Robin Ellis, of course.) The glorious old Cornish manor house in the featured image at the top of this post is the property that became Ross’s Nampara in the BBC series. I was so smitten by it that it was my template for the St Neot family’s Penmere, in Danger at Mellin Cove. It also features …

Poldark, and a diabetic cookbook

Rena George Poldark 8 Comments

  Remember the BBC’s fabulous Poldark series?  Maybe you’ve caught some of the recent re-runs on one of the Freeview channels? Or like me, perhaps you have the complete DVD set?  The lovely old house in the picture above is one of two chosen as Nampara, where Ross and Demelza lived. My heart still beats a little faster at the memory of the enigmatic Captain Ross Poldark, alias actor, Robin Ellis, riding out across the wild Cornish moors. But then …
