CHECK OUT MY NEW LOOK ! ! !

What do you get if you cross an author, photosensitivity, and an absent muse? A new website! On the morning of Feb 1st I woke up with the most excruciating migraine I’ve ever experienced in my life! My attempt to attend the 9-5 ended at 8:55 when I walk into the office, turned around and […]

Climbing Up a Steep Hill Wearing Roller Skates

As an unpublished author I find that touching the world with the written word is sometimes like climbing up a steep hill while wearing rollerskates. Constructive criticism is what helps a good writer to grow into a fantastic writer and getting feedback from readers is hard work, no one wants to hurt your feelings. I love my […]

Taking A Walk Down Memory Lane

Once I discovered romance I would spend hours reading and writing about it. I was, and in some respects still am, a bit of a loner. I like to spend my time with the people I love I’m not a great fan of crowded places and once people go passed the drunk but still fun […]

It’s that time of year again where we bundle up the summer blankets in favour of the thicker warmer quilts. […]

You Won’t See Me Cry

You Won’t See Me Cry is a difficult one to explain. I was looking through my romantic peotry one day in August and realised that I’ve never written a poem from the point of view of relationship break up. I challenged my high level of empathy to the test and attempted to write something I’ve […]

A Poem For You

I wrote Bye Bye Bibby Bye Bye and posted it on Facebook for a friend. One of my family members said that I never wrote poems for them and A Poem For You was something that rolled around my subconscious for around two weeks. Erin Read the poem A Poem For You and more Poems […]

As Busy As a Bee

I have not stopped! Since my last blog post life has gone a little bit crazy. Family life went crazy, work went crazy, and me … I think I might have gone a little bit crazy too! For no other reason that amongst all of the madness my writing has been so what abandoned. :- […]
