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

Beta Readers

I hunched over my keyboard, screwed up my face - and my courage - and clicked SEND. As soon as it was done, the blinking confirmation of my decision burning into the back of my retinas, I let out a sigh that was part nerves, part relief. “It’s done.” “You look like you just ate… Continue reading Beta Readers

School Holidays

I sat down with my cup of tea this afternoon and realised it was, quite suddenly, Sunday - and here I am without so much as a word to share! School Holidays is always one of my favourite times; I love having the kids close by (even if they argue) and not having to rush… Continue reading School Holidays

Sorcery and Stardust, writing

Caelum’s Bookshelf

This little snippet is set about fifty years before Sorcery and Stardust. Enjoy! ***************** “There. Autopilot set; we should arrive in the next five hours or so.” Arcana leant back in her chair and stretched until her shoulders popped. “Once this job is done, we’ll have enough cash to convert the ship so you can… Continue reading Caelum’s Bookshelf

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

Birthday Round-Up

The last week or so has been crazy! With a capital cray. In case the title wasn't a dead giveaway, 22nd August was my birthday, and that's always a fun time of year for me. I don't know why birthdays appeal to me but they always have. It doesn't have to be mine, I love… Continue reading Birthday Round-Up

Sorcery and Stardust, The Weaver’s War, writing

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
