I have not been silent on my support of the Black Lives Matters movement and I’ve been doing that by one action alone; sharing and retweet the voices of those it affects most. Today some of those words were lost. A clear screen shot on Taia Dominique’s Twitter can be seen that she posted the whole poem, but that later other parts of it were taken down. This is not right, the… Read More

In everything that’s going on at the moment I know some of you are more scared than you’ve ever been before.   There are a million things going on outside our control. Fear eats a hole in our stomachs as we twitch aside window curtains and wonder if just one more visit to the store will bring home a fatal virus.   We lived with our parents and grandparents dread of another… Read More

    Yep. I’m doing it.   I’ve had a Patreon page set up for over month now I haven’t launched. I have been planning it now for about a year. I didn’t do it because asking people to support me in my writing journey from a financial point of view felt crap.   But after spending a year doing nothing but give I’ve come to a point where I need to… Read More

Hilariously enough this post is not about games, one of my favourite past times.   This is about the miserable blog post I drafted last night about finding the strength within with a good cry and some sobby youtube clips because my last week has been awful. On one day I received three agent rejections and two job rejections. So I wrote this post at 2am last night feeling very sober and… Read More

This was meant to be a delightful post I wrote several days ago about my accomplishments this year. I’ve not had time to go over it, given the NSW fire issues but wanted to post it anyway because despite everything it doesn’t take away my accomplishments of this year. I wrote a story in this blogpost to help relay what its been like. You have to find ways to remember all you’ve… Read More

Welcome one and all to my blog!   For All Hallows Eve (look, if you haven’t figured out I’m Australian by now here is you’re cue), I wish to present to those on the cusp and preparing for the dreaded thirty days of mayhem, trauma, and soul crushing despair, faced during the course of Nanowrimo, the kind of foe which every writer has come to know…   WRITERS BLOCK!   Scary, yeah?… Read More

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 periods of time and that the writing is probably trash. As a prolific sprinter, and knowing that… Read More

Sixteen weeks ago I was curled against the wall sobbing that there was no point being a writer anymore. I had to stop working on the Last Prophecy series and I wasn’t sure I could keep doing this. I wasn’t just tired, I was well and truly beyond weary. Exhausted. Five years ago I met with a doctor who’d taken a series of blood tests. The original tests were supposed to have… 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
