The Secret of all Creation

A short story offered up for anyone who is interested. This is one of my quirky horrors - no blood, no gore - but a nice little twist.

Writing update

Hi everyone, just thought I'd let you know what I'm currently working on

This is the 5th Novel in my Forgotten Wings series. It's been written, re-written and is currently back in latter self-editing phase. Still aiming to get it out in the New Year.

Girl at a Station
This is a sweet little girl/girl romance that I've just made available on my website. I enjoyed writing it and I plan on doing other such stories.

The secret of all creation
A short horror story will be free published on my website next week.

Out next week

How was I today?

In a good place, writing happy things (like Girl at a Station). Work (the day-job) is a bit CRAP but overall I am warm and fuzzy.

Girl at a Station

This is a new short romance I penned this week. Free for anyone to read. Gentle girl/girl and very sweet.

Mothers, daughters and imaginary friends


To begin with, writing requires a certain type of madness, the ability to disassociate oneself from true reality and go with the version that is inside one’s one head. We call this imagining of other worlds and non-existent people ‘fantasising’.

Writers need their imaginary worlds. Deeply into a story we don’t just imagine these places, we live there. We are, after all, trying to get our readers to rent space in our universe while they ride along on our story, and nobody likes an absentee landlord!

Likewise, we have to conjure up the people to fill our worlds. Our characters start out as ideas. We may visualise what they look like, define the circumstances of their life and have a plot which determines the evils that will befall them. However, that is only the start, and as we go about the writing process, these quickly-sketched profiles soon start to develop characteristics, nuances, and before we know it, minds of their own.

Yes, minds of their own. What a strange concept, don’t you think?

That may be the point where things get interesting because suddenly, like a parent with a reluctant teenager in tow, we discover that we are no longer in tight control; the character in our head has other ideas.

How was I today?

Slightly perky. Getting over my cold, managed a few bits and pieces on the website. Need to get back to doing some writing though. All pretty good right now.
