Brody’s Contemptuous Glare

The cat Brody Nankervis is sitting in the doorway and I know what she’s thinking: ‘How are you going to find the time to get everything done, pyscho?’ I don’t know the answer. I really need to find a way to keep writing brand new work, even if it’s just for an hour a...

Doubts Aside!

Today the first three episodes of Some Kind of Superstar, Series One are uploaded to Amazon and available for pre-order and I should be very excited and pumped to have finally got to this point. But I am more hankered down by doubt than ever before. My idea to fit...

Learning about the formatting of books and how to market them as a self-publisher is something I’m so keen to do and yet it’s such a drag, seems like it will take so much time to get anywhere near right, and makes me yearn for the writing room. I have to get through...

SKOSS 2, Diary Entry 29

Was enthused about writing from the time I went to bed, right through the morning school prep, but – no surprises – as I’m making coffee, kid free for a few hours, about to walk down the hallway to the writing room, my enthusiasm morphs into a strange kind of fear...

SKOSS 2, Diary Entry 28

Getting a little it of a buzz thinking about how technology might come in to further the SKOSS books. The story deals with social media, Facebook and Twitter and Instagram and likes and comments and shares, so it makes sense that the characters would have real life...
