In Flight

Rain poured down, splattering so hard against the windshield it was almost impossible for the wipers to do their job. I squinted, ducking down slightly in a futile effort to better see where we were going. It was half past eight in the morning, but the clouds were so heavy it might as well have… Continue reading In Flight

Rebirth

This scene is set about fifty-eight years before the events of Sorcery and Stardust. Enjoy! ************** Tall, stately trunks bore silent witness as he paced, steps brisk with a restlessness that could no longer be denied.

A Dose of Adulting

When you write a book, it's amazing. Or at least, I find it amazing - a sense of rightness, of knowing that this is what I'm meant to be doing. I'm not really me if I'm not crafting a world, a story, pushing characters and polishing sentences. It's hard work, but it's the best kind… Continue reading A Dose of Adulting

Father’s Day

“Do I smell bacon?” I looked up from the pan and directly into a pair of indigo eyes, blinking at me from inside my white kitchen tiles. “Yes,” I said, then lowered my spatula in warning. “But it’s not for you.” The rest of Dante’s face emerged from the tiling, his lips pulled into what… Continue reading Father’s Day

Fenris and the Greatsword

This scene takes place approximately 160 years before Sorcery and Stardust, while Fenris is still young. Enjoy! ************* The Weaver’s Armoury stretched on interminably, countless racks of weaponry sleeping in the shadowed belly of the castle. “We’re going to be here all day, aren’t we?” Brianne raised the flickering torch above her head, the flames… Continue reading Fenris and the Greatsword

Grocery Shopping

GROCERY DAY Fluorescent lights blazed overhead and I squinted against the glow, keeping my head down to avoid accidental eye contact. I stomped up to the twining line of trolleys and fought silently for my prize; a wonky-wheeled monstrosity with someone else’s soggy receipts at the bottom. It’ll do. Two steps into the supermarket, a… Continue reading Grocery Shopping
