Welcome to my blog


All about books, writing and publishing

You will know that I am new to this game: this game of WRITING and getting PUBLISHED.   I love books, I collect them avidly, have shelves and shelves of them, many queuing up to be read.  I love reading classic beautiful literature, being transported into different worlds.  I love the English language, its play on words.  My personal interest is FICTION: I like it thoughtful, I like it intricate, with undertones and sub-plots and bouts of fast-paced action, involving real characters.  I write stories about normal people in mystifying circumstances, that slow-burn with curiosity before coming together in dramatic denouements, that are sometimes surprising, often violent.

But that’s just me.  You may be into something completely different.

  • If you are a reader, thinking about becoming a writer, then these blogs may have something for you.

  • If you are a writer, just starting to learn the craft, beginning to recognise the challenges, then maybe we can share experiences, learn the ropes together.

I shall split these blogs into two categories: writing (the creation) and publishing (the business).
