And Mandy's latest book...
Made in Nashville…feel the country!
An on-stage attack left Honor Blackwood with more scars than just the one on her face. It’s been ten years since she left her spot as Nashville’s brightest country music star. Is now the time to return? And is she brave enough to do it?
Country rebel and rock star, Jared ‘Jed’ Marshall is hot property on the Tennessee music scene in more ways than one. He’s wild, he’s sexy and everybody wants a piece of him. But when he sets his sights on Honor, is it pure attraction or just distraction on his mind?
Honor’s record label sign the ex-boyfriend that dumped her and suddenly going back to her old life is harder than she thought. And when a secret from the past becomes public knowledge it’s no longer just about the music… Are all the people in her life lying to her to get what they want?
Join the country scene to find out!
Made in Nashville – where the off-stage action’s as hot as the music!

And now for Mandy's feet...
I have to say my feet are far more Coyote Ugly than Pretty Woman if I’m honest. So, with that in mind, I’ve done you a little day in the life of my feet at this year’s Country 2 Country music festival.
The majority of the time you will find me either in boots or flip flops. Very occasionally I will break out into something with a small heel but these moments are rare. And to go to a country festival you have to look the part...cue 12 hours spent in my cowboy boots on day one.
Thick socks and stamina is what you need for stomping the halls checking out the great bands and the merchandise. Look at these beauties from Vintage Cowboy.
But at the end of the first day my feet were KILLING ME!
Day two and what I really needed was to soak them in a nice bowl of warm, soapy water. What I did instead was carry on suffering for my style and added two extra pairs of socks. This worked for about...half an hour while I was watching these guys who were mostly wearing Converse.
It was time – the flip flops had to come out before lunch.
