Hello, lovely. It’s been a while. I’ve thought about writing this a few times in the recent months, but I never really knew what to say. How to say it. Maybe I still don’t. Have you ever fallen apart? My doctor described it as hearing your car make a strange sound, and turning up the… Continue reading Where has the Spoonicorn gone?
The Curse of the Naked Man Chest
Recently, I was email chatting with someone who is far more successful an author than I currently am. We got to talking about my covers and the comment I received was: “While they’re far from bad I do think it’s an area you might need to make improvements in. Take a look at the covers… Continue reading The Curse of the Naked Man Chest
Welcome to 2021! I know it’s been a while since we spoke, but new year, new start and all that, right? One of the first things I do with the new year - and I know I’m not alone - is to select a word of the year. If you don’t know what this is,… Continue reading Streamlining
Watching The World Go By
Happy Sunday morning from chilly Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Or maybe we’re in Antarctica? It’s certainly been cold enough for that recently.

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
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
Attack of the Holidays
I honestly had plans to write something fun and creative this week, but I forgot one very important thing - the school holidays are here! I adore the school holidays. ADORE them. Having my two beautiful babies home with me every day and no reason to leave the house? What could be better? Still, the… Continue reading Attack of the Holidays
The Final Countdown
It's official! Sorcery and Stardust is less than a week away. Six whole days, to be precise. With the release approaching, lots of fun things have been going on. On the top of my list has been receiving my first batch of hard copies! Whilst I love the convenience of digital and have a kindle… Continue reading The Final Countdown
