I’ll be honest with you. I’ve been neglecting my blog. There are two reasons for this. The first is that I’ve been writing my fourth and fifth novels, and a short story. The second is that I’ve been in existential crisis. Again. Then, last night I watched Dinosaurs: The Final Day; today I’m compelled toContinue reading “YOLO”

Living the Dream

I was chatting with a friend in the pub at lunchtime the other day, while he tried to get the fire he’d started in the hearth roaring for the evening (he works behind the bar – he’s not a pyromaniac, to my knowledge).

From Sue’s #WIP, Fortune’s Fool… Fortune’s Fool is a sequel to my novel The Unkindest Cut of All.  Both are set in the world of amateur dramatics.  This extract is from Chapter One. As Sarah and Katy waited for their first scene, Sarah took the opportunity to resume their chat. “Have you done anything likeContinue reading “Welcome, Sue Barnard!”
