Why do we choose to write, it’s not easy or glamorous, it eats our time and makes our families suddenly have to fend for themselves as we’re wrapped up in grammar, spelling, research, formatting, design, graphics, publicity and accountancy. We tie ourselves into a fantasy world and push away reality… why? It’s hard work, I […]
Up early and on with the final read through of book 3 (Yes, yes I know… the title? I’m getting there). It’s lovely to get to this stage, I get to start thinking about cover designs and release dates. But… I have spent most of my morning agonising over a comma! Yes, 75k words, ten […]
Am I the only one who is struggling to find enough time to get everything done. I’m editing as much as I can but the gods seem to be challenging me to finish this book. I need another day in the week, I’d like writeday (Yes I’ve named it too – this is serious stuff) to […]

I’m feeling particularly good about writing this weekend as sales of The Community are on the up and I’ve met people over the weekend who have been singing it’s praises. […]
