Crow About to Fly

Getting close to 70,000 words with about five chapters to complete for my new book Crow’s Song. It may be a longer read too.

It’s been hard work researching some of the details of the main protagonists, Ava in London, and Piet in Eindhoven, during WWII. I’ve been daring and written the characters in first person during their […]

What’s in a Name?

It must be a fool moon! I’m not kidding. It’s taken me eight-months to get halfway through my current book project, Crow’s Song.

Then I decided to start writing another secret-squirrel book at the same time. Working on two books every day!! There must be medication for this, right? To hell with housework, ironing, and dust bunnies! […]

We stare upwards in collective horror.

I bolt across the fields, running towards the plummeting Mosquito aircraft, while the others cling onto one another, shouting unintelligible warnings.

Authors Note

By |2021-05-09T13:37:16+12:00March 8th, 2021|Shadow Between Lies|

Authors Note:

I am launching a new series called Shadows Between Lies which is based on the earlier In the Deep End Series.

I have created a new book so the new series is three books.

The original series, In the Deep End, was positioned in the wrong online category and the books failed to take off under their old branding. So, this […]

One is called, ‘The […]

Learning Poetry

By |2020-10-18T08:31:45+13:00September 30th, 2020|Crow's Nest, News Updates|

I’ve returned to university to do an English paper on poetry and prose. I hope to improve my writing.
