Butterflies Are Blue

Recently in a field of wildflowers and birdsong, Martin White illegally released 72 tiny mazarine blue butterflies.

These tiny porcelain blue-winged creatures are endangered, and Martin has made it his life’s work to breed and release these tiny creatures into the open country air.

He’s prepared to break the law in Britain because this is the first time in more […]

The Beard

I want to say this is ONLY contemporary FICTION, with an unexpected twist!

I’ve been learning more about image and voice at Waikato University and this prose sample is one of the weekly assignments submitted for assessment. It’s short and hopefully gives you some insight into my writing style. Enjoy!

Getting readers to leave book reviews on line is the toughest job

The world’s largest book retailer makes it tough to get independently verified readers to leave a book review online. Which makes it tougher to improve an author’s rankings and attract new sales. So a catch-22 that never used to exist until the online feeding frenzy took over.

Writing Exercise

By |2020-09-09T14:14:26+12:00September 8th, 2020|

I took two pages of the draft text for my next new book.

Working title, Crow’s Nest, and decided to hone it down to basics. This is what I ended up with!

No one noticed, but suddenly the crickets and birds fell ominously silent. Only the faint summer breeze gently moved into the lounge, making the heavy drapes sashay across the carpet, […]

As the Crow Flies

By |2020-09-11T12:54:45+12:00August 30th, 2020|


On Friday morning I sat in a cafe for a couple of hours writing my next book – working title:

Crow’s Nest.

My parents were teenagers during the […]
