July 18, 2017 A long, long, time ago, in a galaxy far away… Ha, yeah. There’s no comparing this journey I’ve been on to the epic trials and tribulations Luke had to endure on his way to Jedi-hood. But it’s close ;-). What am I talking about, you ask? I’m talking about the day I … Continue reading
Ohhhh, we're half-way there ohhhh oh, livin' on a prayer Take my hand, we'll make it I swear, Ohhhh oh, living on a prayer....

I tend to rebel during the Camps and will start with a piece that's partially written and vow to add 50K words to what I've already done. So it's still a 50K challenge, I'm just starting … Continue reading 2 of 40
I imagined I'd write horror. After all, it's what I read, what I watched (the classics mostly), what I felt most of my childhood (bullying and assorted other traumas); what I dreamt most nights. I wanted to be the monster under the bed for a change. But when I embraced my writing for real, what … Continue reading That’s It!
Happy Birthday I am now officially involved in counting down to my 50th birthday. I've got a list of activities I'm going to shoot for enjoying in the next 12 months, all culminating in the biggest birthday celebration I've had to date.

I've never done this before, come up with a soundtrack to one of my novels but for some reason as I put the finishing touches on The Other Woman, all these songs are popping into my head. I'm using them as chapter headings :-). When the manuscript is formatted and ready for beta, I'm going … Continue reading Soundtrack
So, I'm typing away at my Camp NaNo project right? Just going along as I usually do, mostly with my eyes closed listening (transcribing) as my characters deal with whatever situation they have me writing about at the time and then this happens, “And could it be you’ve felt guilty about leaving me all those … Continue reading O.M.G.
