The First

What’s the first book you ever bought? The first book I remember buying was a paperback copy of A Little Princess by Francis Hodgson Burnett while on a family holiday to Singapore. I remember it clearly, partly, because it’s attached to another memory I have that happened in that bookstore. I was seven and it … Continue reading The First

Why Write About Witches?

“Why write about witches? Are you a witch?” I get asked this a lot. The second part of that question always has an emotion attached to it. The person asking is usually curious, although whether this curiosity stems from their belief that I must be crazy because “there is no such thing as witches” or … Continue reading Why Write About Witches?

Denmark Festival of Voice 2018

I have to say my first Denmark Festival of Voice was awesome! I only attended two days of the festival but everything I experienced was awesome.

Indie Publishing: Part Five – The Belly of the Whale

One of the most useful things I learnt at university, in relation to writing, was archetypes. I had a fantastic teacher who was fundamental in my education of archetypal characters and stories.

Archetypal characters and … Continue reading Indie Publishing: Part Five – The Belly of the Whale
