So Crowdfire, right?

Confession time: I hate having to “do” social media. And don’t get me wrong, I spend as much time as you guys noodling on Facebook and Twitter, but having to do it to raise profile? That I find grim. And […]

First review: Darker…

First review of Darker is in, and it’s a cracker 🙂 “I loved this book. I enjoyed the first in the series and couldn’t wait for the second installment. I wasn’t disappointed. It was great to see the old characters […]

Ok! Let’s Do This!

You know those days when you really feel on fire? Not actually on fire, that would be unfortunate, I mean “in the zone”, “like a tiger-rrarr!” You get the idea. Yeah, well, I should know by now on those days, […]

Is it ok to write what I’m not?

I know most of you here are still laughing at the title since my SFF series is about sentient guinea-pigs but bear with me. The next book is a thriller. And it’s protagonist is a teenaged girl in a wheelchair*. […]

Squeezing writing in with everything else
