Starting Over.

This time last year, I was sitting here watching my children go off to college and school, one of my daughters was hunting for a university place to apply for… a kind of getting ready for the future. Another was contemplating whether to continue on with her courses and get the final qualification. Everyone was Read More

So… What I did One Evening was…

I’ve always been a huge fantasy and sci-fi reader. Those earliest stories I read were based on fantastical themes; Red Riding Hood, Rumplestiltskin, Alice In Wonderland, and so many more that I can’t remember their names, yet the stories have stayed with me. It was only natural that I write my own, and I have Read More

A Change Of Pace.. Or Space?

I’ve been thinking about this for a long time, and wondering just how I’m going to achieve it… What is ‘it’, you ask yourself. It, is the thing I have been struggling with for eons. Centuries of strife to up my… Productivity! Yes, Productivity is the It. That elusive, endangered state that I keep on Read More

New Year… New decade…

Wow, 2019… it was a blast! Thanks for putting me through the wringer and sending me out again, changed, broken… renewed?

I moved house… country… finally let go of a damaging, draining relationship, and almost fell into another. Funny how we Read More

New Directions

Its been a while, as always, the pace of life gets the better of me and I seem to fall away from my page, if not from other things. I have been writing furiously… if that’s even a thing, and I have a few new projects that are coming in the very near future. The Read More

The Importance Of Muses

It’s the new year and I’ve realised something: The importance of having a muse. You may ask, what does a muse have to do with a fiction writer? and I’ll have to tell you everything. Literary Muses Many famous artists and literary persons throughout the years have had muses, either good or bad, but the Read More

So What's New In The New Year??

It’s that time of year again, when we look back over the past year and kick ourselves!!! We’re happy to kick ourselves for all the goals we failed to accomplish. Overjoyed to berate ourselves for our inane failings. And too quick to belittle our minimal successes, no matter how small. So, as I did last Read More


What is it about the human spirit that it loathes to live alone? We constantly strive to be with someone, to have another person close by, despite the risk that it may all come to nothing, or that person will leave you behind. I wondered what it was like for children, because for me, when Read More
