How I F*cked Up

Rather than respond directly to a series of tweets that were recently hurled at me about why I would need editors, critique partners or beta readers before selling my novel to unassuming readers, I’m going to explain why I do in great detail.   And to do this I have gotten up at 5am to […]

My Mother Kills Fairytales

  My mother kills fairy tales. She read us Lord of the Rings twice. The Nargun under the Stars, though it gave us nightmares. She dredged up British classic and found swamp ridden Australian delights to amaze and frighten us. Day of the Triffords, Watership Down, The Dark is Rising, The Hobbit, and forever our […]

The Green Elephant

I want to talk about the elephant in the room. The green one. The one that sits behind the screen and judges. Both their own self worth and what they have accomplished. A few months back someone sent me a screen shot a tweet that criticized authors for talking about writing many words in short […]

Pit What Now? #BoostMyBio

I’ve done a lot of challenging, ambitious and straight up crazy in my writing life. Like the time I was so desperate for editing cash I actually considered a letting a foreign prince fund my writing career. It fell out because he didn’t want to the whale I bought him as a token of friendship… […]
