Sweating Towards the Finish Line

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! […]

To Vaccinate… Or Not?

To Vaccinate… Or Not?

Only 20 percent of New Zealanders are fully vaccinated. We’re down there with third world countries at the bottom of vaccination rates. Why?

Because we followed a Covid elimination strategy. It worked until NOW. Delta is ramping up and with 107+ cases and a further 14,000 close contacts in the past week!

Let’s look at the average Kiwi’s vaccination […]

Unbearable Playfulness

Unbearable Playfulness of Being.

While lying together in bed, I run my fingers through your grey hair and my thoughts meander over your love and playful lightness of being.

Gently massaging your body, I take care not to wake you. Fatigue and pain dog your last days. I want to soak up your suffering like a sea-sponge, eradicating every […]

Radio Rave

Fame at last! A radio interview with presenter Rachel Dore last week.

We discussed a whole range of things around writing and books I’ve written so far. A lively, fun discussion and I was totally unprepared!

She contacted me from MPR radio the day before the time slot.  I’m always the bridesmaid, filling in for someone else that couldn’t make it. I […]

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 […]
