Let me help you write a novel!

Have you ever wanted to write a novel? Are you a NaNoWriMo virgin or are you a seasoned pro? I talk about NaNoWriMo every single year, because it's the most fun part of my year, and this will be my 10th year in completing it.  Whilst I could harp on about what it's all about … Continue reading Let me help you write a novel!

‘Baby Steps’ paperback – Out Now!

'Baby Steps' is the second instalment in The Fantasy Girl Series; a collection of novellas following Etta, a young girl in early 1930's America, who discovers her world is full of witches and demons, mystery and danger.

Paperback Writer…

I feel like I've been harping on about this quite a bit this past week but, to be honest, when you don't have anyone else advertising you kind of have to become your own annoying publicist. One of my short story series, Etta!, is finally available in paperback WORLDWIDE. It's a fun thing to think … Continue reading Paperback Writer…

Two Year Bookiversary!

You know me, I love a good milestone celebration. This one, in particular, is close to my bitter old heart; the 2 year anniversary of my first self-published novella. It's kind of a bitter sweet celebration because I was so happy to publish this - despite a few spelling errors - but I had planned … Continue reading Two Year Bookiversary!

Writing projects!

I realised recently I wanted to start blogging more about writing - something which may not really interest many people [I don't know? Let me know if you are interested in particular topics in the comments!] or be a popular thing to blog about but hey ho! Writing is my ultimate bread and butter thing … Continue reading Writing projects!

Nanowrimo 2017

This is going to be a wordy blog and less pictures, which you're probably happy about because my photo taking has been terrible recently. I am, what we in the industry like to call 'shutter shy'. Wait, did I make up a cool term or is that a term for something else? I feel like … Continue reading Nanowrimo 2017

So you want to write a novel?

I can't believe I'm writing this but... it's almost November, which means it's almost time for National Novel Writing Month [NaNoWriMo from here on in]. I talk about this every year and this year is no exception. NaNoWriMo is a big part of my life and has been for the past six years - this … Continue reading So you want to write a novel?

Making a wish

I feel like I'm always talking about writing on this blog but that's kind of my thing so let's go with it! I'm sure, if you've been following this blog for a while, you'll know my dream career is to be a full time writer. I don't necessarily believe I could earn a living wage … Continue reading Making a wish

Bad Ass Woman : Brit Marling [ft. The OA]

For a few years [read: since 2011] I've had this thing about Brit Marling. Not only a fantastic actress but a woman who is writing her way into the Boys Club of Hollywood in a way that speaks to me! It's not enough that she's co-written a few fantastic projects with her friend Zal Batmanglij but … Continue reading Bad Ass Woman : Brit Marling [ft. The OA]

Yoga workshop with Adriene Mishler  

I'm writing this post 24 hours after the event and still I have what can only be described as a yoga high. Yesterday I took the train into Manchester after work to attend a live yoga session with Adriene of YouTube channel Yoga With Adriene. I'm pretty sure I've already blogged about her and so … Continue reading Yoga workshop with Adriene Mishler
