Chappin’ at the Windae
I have agonised over whether to write about DixieCon or whether to move quietly on. Chalk it down to experience. Swallow it up. Give me adversity and I’ll easily rustle up several pairs of lederhosen from the curtains whilst singing The Hills Are Alive. I’m a social turnip. I’ll speakContinue reading “DixieCon, We Have A Problem… Or Do We?”

I said I would never blog about politics. It’s too divisive, I said. Our world is fuelled by enough hatred. C’mon though. Quite simply, HOW COULD I NOT?

You’ve met Celeste and her custodian, Sandro. The joyful, life affirming Glasgow Girls, Helen and Rachel. You’ve imagined the parties and darkness of the Ohana. I think wonderful readers, it is finally time to get acquainted with my last character. The wait is over. I bring you retired doctor, sailor,Continue reading “THE OHANA – CHAPTER 3”
Author’s Note: What do you mean you haven’t read The Ohana, Part 1? Then dear reader, you need to go back. Go back. Go back. Part 2 works as a standalone, but reading a book backwards is like eating a Jaffa Cake upside down. There is a logic to theContinue reading “THE OHANA – CHAPTER 2”
I finished my epic story, ‘Borderline Normality.’ Phew! And breathe! Check out the Short Story Section on the site for a preview and watch this space for final publication of the full-length novel.
