When I read the first few words of this review back at the end of May, I must admit I was a bit taken aback .... "All I have to say is, “Nooooooo!” Not, “No, don’t read this book,” or, “No, it isn’t any good.” “Nooooooo,” ...... AND THEN I COULD BREATHE A SIGH OF … Continue reading ElizaBeth Adams: her take on Julia’s Story
Thanks, Gatton, Laidley … and Ipswich #LitChat
One of the pleasures of an author's life is to have the opportunity to speak about their work and I've been doing that lately, at Gatton and Laidley Libraries in the Lockyer Valley on Friday 3rd November and now today at the Indie Author Expo at Ipswich Central Library. What a great resource the public … Continue reading Thanks, Gatton, Laidley … and Ipswich #LitChat

It is a giant mistake to think you can give your website an update in half an hour. I tell you now that is impossible, so the several Sunday hours I should have spent with my characters, progressing their lives and loves, I instead spent updating my website and learning more about the capabilities of … Continue reading Excuse me, but wasn’t I meant to spend the day writing?
