  • Live my creation! Live!

    Live my creation! Live!

    Well almost. I’m not quite at the stage of raising the lightening rod into the heavens in order to keep the electricity bill down, but I am starting to look at the weather forecast for the next few days to see if a convenient storm might be coming my way. My creation fortunately does not rely upon raiding the local mortuaries, or having a good cross-stitch, instead it all comes down to my writing, re-writing and editing of my next novel ‘Through Glass Darkly’, the first episode of which will be published around April of next year.

  • I saw the Whale and the Sun

    I saw the Whale and the Sun

    Not quite the Whole of the Moon, but it was in the evening and the moon was also out. I’m talking about the Leeds Light Night, which took place last Friday, and for those not aware, its an annual event which started in Leeds a few years ago as a celebration of local arts and culture. It’s grown a lot since then, and now attracts thousands of people into the city centre for a single evening each year, to see strange sights and experience odd, uplifting and enthralling events all free of charge.

  • Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain!

    Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain!

    Well it’s been a bit wet here over the past few days, with some seriously heavy downpours for what seems like hours on end for the majority of the week. Now I say this, despite unusually having managed to avoid the worst of the deluge while I’ve been out and about. Now being an Englishman I like few things more than complaining about the weather, but this is balanced in large measure by my equal enjoyment of bad weather when I’m tucked up indoors with no need to venture out into said bad weather.

  • The road goes ever on

    The road goes ever on

    Having a much needed break from the workaday routine this week to indulge in some rock climbing in the Fontainebleau forest in France. For all intents and purposes this also means a bit of a break from all things writing related, I still bring a notepad and pen, and have my trusty Kindles Fire and Paperwhite, but they’re generally for just scribbling the odd note, doing a bit of reading in the evenings or penning something a bit more on the odd bad weather like today.

  • And . . . . . Restart . . . again!

    And . . . . . Restart . . . again!

    Well, while I’m now in the middle of the much needed long August bank holiday weekend, the lead up to the weekend has been a very frustrating if educational few days that has seen me trying out different blogging platforms before finally, (hopefully) settling on this site. Read more…

  • But the shadows are comfortable, warm and deep!

    But the shadows are comfortable, warm and deep!

    Well my first novel is only a few short weeks away from being released into the big bad world, so as the author its high time I stepped from the shadows at least into the gloom by setting up this site. In truth I don’t really have much of a clue about what kind of thing my readers might be interested in, so I’ll start by focusing on the book that’s about to released, and some of the inspirations and other projects I’ve got on the go.
