I wanted to write a story where the main character could be seen as either male or female depending on the wishes or viewpoint of the reader. It seemed an interesting experiment to me to see the reactions of the readers. I’m not sure it worked as the first two people who read the book assumed without question, and didn’t notice the fact that I […]

Herai Progress

Just realized looking at my last Blog, I haven’t mentioned that Herai is now fully available to buy in all formats (apart from hardback.)

The Sea

The sea is important to me. I love the way it changes its face every second of every day. I love the way it exists – oblivious to the turmoil around it. I am happy to admire the sea from the land. A distant, remote admirer. Of no use to the sea, but no threat either. I fell late in life, to this attraction. Thirty […]
