Writing for You   I’ve been bummed lately. I’m not even gonna lie about about it.   “Don’t post about negativity.”   Blogging 101 – and today… I don’t care.   I’ve been stuck in a little bit of a rut and what I want you to know is how to conquer that because right now I feel like the world is at my feet rather than hanging over my head. I’ve… Read More

    It’s scary, I get it. You’re asking someone who is potentially a stranger to put their grubby paws all over your creation. To dirty it’s walls with comments on the plot. Smear mud on character development. Wee on info dumps. Put a massive turd in that unforeseen plot hole. And the way you think about a betareader and their feed back is wrong. You’ve asked them to read it as… Read More

I wrote a book in 25 days. Lets cut straight to the facts as they are; I don’t have kids I live in a rural area I have a short commute I worked fucking hard at it   I love the book, I think it’s a great stand alone story and for me that’s a rarity. It sprung into my head after I halted work on the Last Prophecy series because buying… Read More

“I don’t know how you did it.”   The compliment came when I announced I’d completed my 2018 goal of writing six books. They didn’t know how I did it. Thinking back, neither do I.   I normally write a blog post at the end of the year about my accomplishments and hopes for New Year, like it was a wondrous learning experience. I save the post for New Years Eve, an… Read More

You’re doing what?!? Writing a 21 book/novella series… and in my sleep Cthulhu eats my brain. This came about thanks to @lilcrow during a flurry of twitter when she asked me what I wrote, and I blabbed about my series, later realising I’d given her the complete wrong impression. She’d assumed I’d actually finished this mammoth task, and flattering as it was, I’m a long way off. But I am determined… if… Read More

No, really, its not an rhetorical question. It shouldn’t be a question. I’ve been on this journey for three years now, and I’m still asking myself that question. When I started my self pubbing journey I did it because there was a voice inside me that wasn’t just the woman who occasional wrote a bit, had even finished a couple of novels. I had a story I desperately needed someone to hear,… Read More

Right here actually, I was right here working my behind off. I’ve flung myself into the yet unnamed 3rd book of the Last Prophecy Series, and its proving to be beautiful but… a tad political, requiring oodles of research but that’s for another post when I DO have a title for the book. I’m also neck deep in the reviews for Queen of Spades Awakening – and being told by my beta… Read More

It didn’t dawn on me until I was sitting at the launch, the display out for everyone, that I felt like I could be excited! The local Mayor was coming to give a speech, my Dad flew down from the NSW coast unexpectedly, but I didn’t feel until that moment that I’d really done it. As people started turning up it started to pass in a blur, but I got so many… Read More

Its coming, its so close and I am so excited to start talking about it! SIX WEEKS TO GO until The Well of Youth will be officially released and available for purchase! To celebrate this culmination of years of hard work and passionate creativity, I will be hosting a launch event in my home town of Trentham. I invite you to join me to celebrate not only the release of the first… Read More

It is with *great* excitement I announce that, thanks to my dear brother in law and his tireless efforts, that we have a Kickstarter for the Well of Youth! The Kickstarter is for all of you who have supported and encouraged me, followed my work and become fascinated by the story I am telling. Please go to this Kickstarter Page to see what we have an offer and what contributions can get… Read More
