Greetings all! It’s been a while. It seems like 2015 was just the warm-up lap. Think that went fast? Watch 2016 fly by!
What of note happened in 2016… It’s like when you’re asked to note down all the parts of your job. It actually takes effort to think of it all. One of Gandalf’s first lines in ‘Fellowship of the Ring’ had it right:
“Well, what can I tell you? Life in the wide world goes on much as it has… full of its own comings and goings…”
So yeah, nothing terribly exciting happened. Work, family life, a season of rugby that was nowhere near as successful as the one two years before, signed back up to the gym almost immediately afterwards…
Writing, you say?
There was plenty of that… for 6 months. The second half of the year was a big block of nothing, while the first half was fighting to make True Love’s Last Kiss the right length. Initially it was seven chapters, then it became ten, then twenty, then eighteen… then I lost the thumb drive that had it all, and lost a year and a half of work. Feeling a bit dumb about that is the understatement of the decade, but what can you do? It can be salvaged from submissions to my writers’ group.
So, priority #1 is find a way to finish True Love’s Last Kiss. That means re-instilling some of the self-discipline that has fallen by the wayside. After that, possibly start Book 2 in the series, maybe go Monty Python and opt for something completely different.
Yes, actually post something of consequence on this page, which has been terribly neglected for two whole years. Make it part of the discipline re-instillation program.
Let’s see how we go with those aims. I hope your 2017’s are going well thus far, and that you’re on your way to chasing down your resolutions, hopes and dreams =)

Beyond the Shadows is FREE for a limited time only!
If your shadow was trying to consume you, how would you run from it?
What if you were afraid of something you could never escape?
Selena Parker’s journey into the unknown begins in her dreams, but the consequences are carried back into her conscious life and she soon realises paranormal forces are at work. Her shadow has become more than just an image, it is a gateway to a sinister new world where mysterious creatures roam and she is confronted by danger that challenges her will to survive. She finds the man whose fate is linked inexplicably to her own but she knows nothing of him and doubts his true nature. Her only option is to place her life in his hands while they search for a way to stop the shadows claiming them forever.
About the Author
When I was a child I wanted to be an author, it seemed like a perfectly attainable dream to me then, but of course I grew up and realised that writing was not the best way to make a future for myself. So I discarded the idea and decided to do something normal.
When I studied nursing I thought I’d found a place for myself, but within six months of working in that field I knew I needed more. So in July 2007 I bought myself a lap top and started writing in my spare time. It took me two years to complete my first book and by the time it was finished I felt as though I’d learnt enough to pursue the dream.
My love for writing has grown rapidly since then and now I know that it’s something I can’t live without. It’s a place where there is no limit, no exact destination and my mind is free to exist in many worlds.
It’s a beautiful sanctuary.
