Happy New Year! I missed posting last week because I’ve had internet connection issues this week. Everything is back to normal now (I hope) and I’m really excited to share another poem with you this week. I don’t normally write poems this long but to tell this story it really did need to be thisContinue reading “Poem: My Greatest Fear”
It’s the time of year when we tend to reflect on what we have accomplished in the last twelve months, and what we wish to accomplish in the coming twelve months. I used to be a firm believer in setting New Years resolutions but, like many people, even with the best intentions, I rarely everContinue reading “2019 Goal Setting”
There is an exercise that is useful for generating writing that I sometimes use in my art practice. You listen to a song, or look at a piece of art and write what comes to you, inspired by the art.

I remember it clearly, partly, because it’s attached to another memory I have that happened in that bookstore. I was seven and itContinue reading “The First”

The mythological Greek Siren’s are nothing like modern MermaidsContinue reading “My Myth of Mermaids and Poem – Siren’s Song”
It should come as no shock to you that I’ve been working really hard on the sequel to The Kingston Chronicles; Samhain Sorcery. My goal was to launch it this Halloween (for the Northern Hemisphere Samhain/Halloween) but realistically there is no way I can have the manuscript finished in, and published, in time. I’m workingContinue reading “Samhain Sorcery Cover Reveal”
Today I wanted to share another poem. I had wanted to share an excerpt from Samhain Sorcery but I’m not where I wanted to be with it yet. So instead I’m sharing this. I wrote this poem circa 2010. I’ve probably mentioned before now that I am pretty obsessed with Greek Mythology. This poem wasContinue reading “Poem – Hades Halls”
I popped into my local library today to return City of Ashes and saw this poster at the counter (see right). These criteria basically cover everything that I order in at my library, and I’ve ordered in something at least twice a month lately. Up till now we’ve been able to order in 60 booksContinue reading “Changes At Our State Library”
