Ensuring that you stay creative, and don’t lose hope

In a previous post I tackled the dreaded topic of ‘Writer’s Block’ and how to beat it, assuming that you belong to the camp of pen wielders who believes that it’s a real phenomenon. I say this because you do get those sorts of people who don’t believe in it, and instead feel it’s allContinue reading “Ensuring that you stay creative, and don’t lose hope”

My New Book Is ‘Death’s Edict’

In seventeen years of writing I can safely say that it has never happened to me before that I became so consumed by a story that I put my current one on hold. In August last year I discussed my horror novel in the works ‘The Wraith in the Woods’, and while that story isContinue reading “My New Book Is ‘Death’s Edict’”

My Novel ‘Black Glass’ Will Be Available On 02 March 2021

The title pretty much sums it up, doesn’t it? Be that as it may, Black Glass is a novel that I originally began conceptualising as far back as <cringe> May 2015, which is just under six very long years ago.

I am not implying that you necessarily have to be pursuing professional publication,Continue reading “Join a Writing Circle”

Announcing my poetry collection, ‘Dancing with Darkness’

After hours upon hours of rigorous writing coupled with the launch of my Instagram account in July 2020, I am ready to share my first complete collection of poetry. Those who may know me will know that I don’t typically write about heartbreak, loss or society or the world. I tend to write about theContinue reading “Announcing my poetry collection, ‘Dancing with Darkness’”

Introducing my horror novel in the works ‘The Wraith in the Woods’

The horror genre is immensely close to my heart, as deeply disturbing and weirdly wonderful as that may sound to you.
