Madness Descends…

In my fifty odd years of life, I’ve seen some stuff.  From the Global Financial Crisis, to recessions, to SARS, AIDS, 9/11 and numerous other crises, we have rolled with the punches and I thought I’d seen the scariest things, the worst of humanity.… Continue Reading “Madness Descends…”

Thoughts from the dark side…

Boy. Every time I think I’ve delayed putting up a blog post by months, I manage to break my own record. (And no, that’s not something I’m particularly pleased about.) I join you in something of a world gone mad – as Coronavirus spreads… Continue Reading “Thoughts from the dark side…”

Five Minute Fiction

(I’ve placed this under five minute fiction, but there’s a lot of truth which cuts close the bone in this short burst.) “Are you okay?” It was a question I’d been asked half a dozen times so far today, and each time I’d repeated… Continue Reading “Five Minute Fiction”

Yep, I’m still alive…

I hadn’t realized just how long it had been since I wrote a blog post, until I checked on this page today.  2019 is one of those years which has gotten totally out of control, not least because the DH (upon our arrival in… Continue Reading “Yep, I’m still alive…”

A Change of Pace

I’ve been considering this situation for quite some time. Being bipolar means my ‘feels’ are sometimes exploded beyond what is rational, my decisions are spur of the moment, and taken without thought of the ramifications. So it is with no small amount of consideration… Continue Reading “A Change of Pace”

It started with a snowball… in her gloved hand…

Pheweee.  It’s amazing what you come across when you’re editing a first draft, stuff you didn’t even realise you were writing.  Or repeating for that matter. In Tokens of My Confection, which is heading towards publication in (hopefully) the not too distant future, one… Continue Reading “It started with a snowball… in her gloved hand…”

Finding Inspiration…

As a writer, finding inspiration can come in many shapes and forms.  For myself, it’s usually in the form of photographs, images which evoke a visceral response and spark the voices in my head. These photos, of Bodie, California are those type of images… Continue Reading “Finding Inspiration…”

Musings from Over Here…

  It’s been a wet weekend here in Perth, and on my walk this morning, the duck jetty was on it’s way to disappearing under water. Forced myself out on the walk, even though my throat feels as if I’ve swallowed a couple of… Continue Reading “Musings from Over Here…”

Writing and Editing and Publicity… Oh My

One of the absolutely hardest things about being a writer, is firstly, the writing.  I watch some of the other writers I know, who publish six to eight books a year, and I take my hats off to them.  I know it involves a… Continue Reading “Writing and Editing and Publicity… Oh My”

Nememiah 5 – Coming Soon!

It’s been a long (long, long, long) time coming, but the final book is now in the hands of my editor and beta readers, and will soon be winging its way to my publisher for final approval and publication.  I know everyone waiting for… Continue Reading “Nememiah 5 – Coming Soon!”
