Blurred Worlds…the new name for a Wilderness Within

  I've been deliberating over this for a while, but I finally decided that I needed to rebrand myself to offer a stronger identity to my work. A Wilderness Within served me well in the beginning. It played to my sensibilities as a writer, an introvert who viewed the writing journey as a vast, lonely wasteland … Continue reading Blurred Worlds…the new name for a Wilderness Within

Night’s Butterfly

I should've run, gone some place she wouldn't find me, but some lights are too bright to turn from. Even now it's hard to know who was the moth and who the flame. Without wings what are we anyway? Caterpillars? or worse, grubs...cockroaches feeding off the detritus of a society hurtling toward its end of days. I drink in this … Continue reading Night’s Butterfly

Writing Death Monkeys

To some it's known as writer's block--an artistic palsy that leaves you with an inability to put pen to paper, fingertip to keyboard. Some know it as procrastination (laziness), while others still (usually poets) will deign to call it ennui.  It is a product of fear and anxiety, feelings of unworthiness, and if you're a writer you will have experienced it. Fear is the … Continue reading Writing Death Monkeys

Book be a lady tonight

So, I had myself a charming lunchtime rendezvous today with a classy little thing all the way from Bavaria. Oozing charm and sophistication (even at two hundred-years old), my date was attired in a devilishly chic little black number, blurring the lines between elegance and cheapness ...well, I did pick her up for a pound in the stairwell … Continue reading Book be a lady tonight

Forest Town is open for business

It’s been a long hard road, but the website for the Forest Town Chronicles is finally up and the second book, The Dark Rising, is now available on Amazon. The website is a little basic at the moment, purely because after almost two years of fiddling and trying to make an unintuitive WordPress theme work, … Continue reading Forest Town is open for business

Cover Reveal – The Dark Rising

Things have been going a bit slower than I'd hoped since I released the first e-book in the Forest Town Chronicles series. I guess having a full-time job and a new baby has taken it's toll, but I'm almost ready with the second instalment. In the meantime, if you're looking for something quick and seasonal to read, … Continue reading Cover Reveal – The Dark Rising
