The Backstory of Run Girl, Run

Kind of a crosspost day today. A couple of days ago, I talked about Psychosis. I've also talked about LudoSport and the impact it's made on my mental health. This time last year, I was approached by a publisher to write a book about my mental health recovery. We'd...

P is for PNR

I've begun a Paranormal romance story in the last year, set in my home town of Edinburgh. I'd always vowed I wouldn't write romance, but here I am, writing it and enjoying it, if I'm honest.The ebook for Cry Havoc is available now, and I'll be releasing the HellHounds...

O is for Outer Space…

While I talk about Darkness being the main universe I write in, and how I've recently discovered that all of them link up, kinda (it's a long story, it's not a spoiler exactly, but I'm trying to think of how to explain that, but as I'm covering everything about my...

N is for Non-fiction

So, I'm talking about my books this month for the AtoZ, and a huge part of my writing is, I guess, my non-fiction. And it's a completely different beast to my fiction.I'll be putting up a lot more of my backlist books in the next couple of weeks, but I've also got a...

Maximum Effort – Geek Chic – The AtoZ special!

(please note, this is one of those one day evolving documents, because it's going to cross link with my newsletter, a new toy I'm playing with on Twitter, and here. if the links don't quite work yet, I apologise - the important thing is the book links DO, even if the...

L is for ‘look at that…’

For a writer, I can be pretty dense sometimes.Do not ask how I went from K to M in my head, I just did. TOMORROW is M for Maximum Effort, which is my newsletter.(If you wanna see me get it RIGHT, and find out about one of my most favorite things in the whole world,...

K is for Kill Kits, Killers

Something a little different for today's post, and then again, not.My first fictional book dealt with a serial killing cult leader, locked up in a glass walled jail for reality TV. (Yeah, that's the quick pitch for Glass Block, more or less).I also write and run -...

J is for just a sec…

I've not found the A to Z easy this year. I don't know why, but it's just been difficult, and hard to find my way through writing up everything, I've got so much to talk about in my books, but today, I just wanted to stop and say thank you.Because without 'just' my...

I is for I Will Wait #romance #LAtrilogy #loveafter

I'm writing today's entry with a heavy heart. And honestly, I was going to say 'in a life of few regrets, this is one of them', but honestly? ANYONE with anxiety can tell you that 'few regrets' isn't something we can say with a straight face, so...instead I'm going to...

H is for Hotel Oblivion

In 2019,I wrote a story called Hotel Oblivion.  The basic concept was what would happen if a hotel had to be isolated, the place locked down, and a serial killer happened to be on the loose. I wrote it after an off-the-cuff comment by someone in the classes at a...

G is for Garrett

Garrett is a book series I talk about almost as much as I talk about Darkness, but it's a completely...actually, it's not. It's not a completely different story, because it's got a lot of overlaps with Darkness. There's a lot of the same story themes and ideas in...

F is FunHouse #atozchallenge

One of the worlds I write in, and is tangentially linked, so far, to Darkness, and Elliot, is the Priestesses of Care, and the Houses.FunHouse is one of the free stories I'm prepping for the launch of that part of the Universe, and Garrett (next post). And FunHouse...

So our big Disney adventure starts in two weeks, which I'm quite excited about, as is someone coming to housesit and get some painting done, so that's also awesome. The eldest is on holiday with his girlfriend right now, the youngest leaves tomorrow for two weeks with...

The end… #Nanowrimo 2015 after action report

One of the things I've been working hard at lately is making myself more present and accountable - instead of living in the past and trying to get past things I can't change, I am instead working on accepting and understanding why I feel the way I do, while living...
