Last year I wrote a little piece called Spun for an anthology my U.S. Publisher was putting together. It's out now,
Cool cover hey?
The art work was created by fine artist Rick Sanders. Being multi-talented Rick also wrote some of the forty pieces with-in this collection.
There are works by 17 authors (including Rick, and me too of course).
It's NOT a children's book.
And I wouldn't call it a light read either.
It's NOT a book that I'd recommend to my grandmother.
And it's not a book I'd normally read.
To be fair, I'm a fan of picture books. I'm a fan of children's books.
I like fairytale endings and butterflies. This book is not filled with those things.
Am excited to say I had my second piece about, Stream of Consciousness Writing, published in Enthralled Magazine.
Of course, I sit here now thinking, what business do I have talking about such things? But I have no intention of sharing that stream with you - far too dark for this site.
So, let's get back to the being exciting bit!
Excited to say, I'm slowly catching up on some of my projects, and it feels great!
It means I can get back to work on some of the things I've been waiting to finish or start for what seems like FOREVER!
One of those things is adding interviews to this site!
Here is the page where you'll be able to find them, hopefully, the first ones will be up sometime in the next few months (sounds like a long time - but it's really not!).
PS. the whole Mud in my hair thing worked out spectacularly!
Well, I've finally gone and done it this time.
I've joined Instagram, and I have absolutely no idea what I am doing. It'll be great!
That's what I'm telling myself for now anyway.
I haven't posted any photos yet.. so not sure if that will be easy or super complicated.
It's been awhile since I posted an update so here goes:
2018 is off to an interesting start!
I've have a few interviews coming out through out the year, a piece from last year should be coming out in a flash fiction anthology this year, and I recently had a piece called 'The Conversation' published in the new writer's magazine 'Enthralled Magazine'

Very excited to find out that Ruby Lane was awarded a Readers' Favorite 5/5 stars review!
'Ruby Lane could very easily become a classic as a beloved favorite tale.' - Melinda Hills for Readers' Favorite
It's a wonderfully high note to end such a long year on! And certainly one that I will reflect upon as I finish mapping out my project and writing goals for 2018.
'Reminiscent of classics such as Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz and The Magic Faraway Tree, Ruby Lane is a page-turner which will keep readers enthralled by the unusual storyline and unexpected scenes.'
