The Kin Chronicles, Tobias’ Spark, writing

Tobias Hard Copy Sneek Peak

Yesterday I received the first batch of print copies for Tobias’ Spark. (Excuse my lived in mess in the background... ahem. Author life!) I’m so excited to finally have these in my hand. As much as I adore my Kindle and the whole ebook industry, there will never be anything quite like the feeling you… Continue reading Tobias Hard Copy Sneek Peak

Merry Christmas, 2019

I hope wherever you are, you're enjoying the festive season in whatever way brings you joy. Things have been very busy here, with the end of school term and the run-up to the big day - tomorrow, yikes! I've shopped, I've baked, I've wrapped and labelled, and I think I'm ready. Writing time has been… Continue reading Merry Christmas, 2019

NanoWriMo Wrap-Up

Well, that's it! November is well and truly over and with it, NanoWriMo. I'll admit now, I was pleasantly surprised at the results. I went into the project thinking 50,000 words in a month was probably doable, but it's also coming into that time of year when things start to go a little haywire -… Continue reading NanoWriMo Wrap-Up

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

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

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

Birthday Season

It’s that time of year again. In my family, birthday season starts in June, and continues on through to the end of August - with a sharp interlude in January. With Orion’s birthday on the 21st of July and Piper’s on the 29th of July, there’s been an awful lot happening in my house the… Continue reading Birthday Season

Little Luna

In the quiet of early morning, the lighting soft and the world still sleeping, I stared down at a feathering of tiny baby lashes and felt my heart squeeze. I remember what it was like when my own children were this small; their tiny fingers, smooth skin and that intoxicating new baby smell. My brand… Continue reading Little Luna
