Everyone has somewhere … a place where you don’t have to travel far to go. A place that relaxes you. Its a place that no matter what is happening around you, good bad or ugly, you can escape and find yourself lost in it’s calming peace and serenity. For an artist a simple brush stroke may take hours. For […]

Gorgeous As Always & To Be As Big As Mama

The Unknown Ending was about how I felt during the last twelve months of my grandmother’s life. She bounced back from the edge three times in that year and I never really knew whether “this was it”. No one did. When my grandmother passed away earlier this year, once again I turned to my poetry to express […]

Maybe Fairytale Don’t Come True!

Several years ago I returned to college to complete my A Levels. I work full time and I chose to study full time. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do and I looked towards my loved ones whenever I needed a confidence boost. The responses I got were not inspiring nor were they what I needed […]

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As an unpublished author I find that touching the world with the written word is sometimes like climbing up a steep hill while wearing rollerskates.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 […]

This is the first time I’ve done NaNoWriMo and I’ve followed the advice handed out by the many people out there. I spent a month planning my […]

R & R Corfu 2009

The Greek Island of Corfu (KerKrya) has to be one of my favourite holiday destinations. After a week in Sidari in June 2008, I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to go again this October. There’s something about driving through Corfu that’s relaxing, and it’s certainly not the crazy Greek drivers or the mountainous roads that have […]

It’s All About Change

October throws me back into a time of collecting horse chestnuts for playing conkers, or throwing handfuls of sycamore seeds into the air and watching them spiral their way to the ground like little helicopters. It’s that time of year again where we bundle up the summer blankets in favour of the thicker warmer quilts. […]

A Stifled Imagination

I’m going to intrigue you with a little human psychology for a moment. If you believe the Social Learning Theorists such as Albert Bandura, which to some extent I do, then our behaviour is shaped by our parents, our siblings, and family friends from what we observe them doing and how we imitate them. Throw […]
