I have a lot planned for this coming year – 2019 is poised to be as busy as 2018 was. First up – new books I’m working on. I’m currently writing a Wraeththu novel called ‘Breathe, my Shadow’, which is based on ‘The Emptiness Next Door’ a short story I wrote for the ‘Paraspectral’ anthology […]
So, I sat here yesterday for about an hour writing an incredibly good entry! When I went to another open page on the computer to copy some information, I inadvertently hit the “no you didn’t” button and lost it all. I will try to recreate it here, but honestly, genius is fleeting so I’m sure […]

Yes, I admit this is a bit of a provocative statement, and sweeping, but I wanted to address an argument I was having with my Husband. And why not use the internet? Nothing like airing your domestic disharmony in public! This isn’t a new argument, we have been over…
I know the last time I wrote was day 19. I do actually plan to catch up. I have been mega busy with work and building a website that I had completely forgot to write here. Basically I have built a website for all my outdoor related posts to go. I have also been working […]

While enabling ordinary people to get onto the […]
Rating: 5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Genre: Fantasy, Dystopian, Paranormal Romance Review: I’ll be the first to admit that though I loved the overall story of Year One and the plot-line, the writing felt blunt and lacked that special depth which makes NR’s stories unforgettable. Not so with Of Blood and Bone. OBAB was way better than Year One. OBAB […]
Week 69 already! Time has flown by the past year and I struggle to believe that I’m now just shy of 16 months into my PhD. As such, I’m now working towards the first piece of work that will, in all likelihood, form the bulk of a chapter in the final thesis. It’s an exciting […]

Yesterday I was proofreading a novel I’ve been working on for the last six years. Needless to say, it’s seen many revisions and read-throughs. To my dismay, I ran into a paragraph with one of my favorite words, ‘had’. I’m joking, ‘had’ is not my favorite word, but it is my favorite overused word. I […]
As I have always stated, doing book tags is a great way for me to let other fellow readers know more about me and my tendency, at least vis-a-vis books and reading. Book tags never get old, so here I am, doing yet another book tag. (I hope that my New Year Book Tag is […]
