  • The Prologue and Down The Rabbit Hole – first draft of new chapter ‘Looking For Mr Rabbit’

    By on April 16, 2015
    The publishing world of words can feel like a sausage machine. Writers quietly steel themselves away and pen tomes, reveal them to the world, readers devour them or ignore them unaware of the years of toil that has been invested in the pages. If a writer is successful they are expected to churn out bestseller after bestseller without any thought, […]

  • Real Life: All Change in Mr Rabbit Land

    By on October 6, 2014

I talk about writing, breaking my leg, I read you some poems, talk about the Salisbury Fringe, Juno Theatre, my other books and ask questions about bum sex. Watch the […]

  • Mercury in Retrograde Ends Friday #WritersUnite

    By on February 25, 2014
    I can tell you that I know how fucked up and out of control I feel by how frequently I read my astrological stars. Not that I pay a ridiculous amount of attention as they have varying degrees of accuracy, but I somehow find it soothing to read them. They give me time to take a moment and decide to […]

  • Have you made a Will yet?

    By on July 4, 2013
    Why you should think about writing a will No one likes to think about their own death but writing a Will is often essential if you want your money, property and belongings to go to your loved ones. What happens if I don’t make a Will? If you die without making a Will, you will have died intestate and the […]

  • Operation Initiative

    By on October 19, 2012
    D-day is pending. In the build up to departure to Les Sables d’Olonne in the Vendee region of Frenchest France to begin my writing gig for the English version of the Vendee Globe website, I am preparing the handover brief to give to Hagar the husband so that he can add the role as Domestic OC (officer-command) to his ever […]

  • Why Do We Blog? What’s It All About?

    By on September 26, 2012
    I haven’t blogged one off for ages. The sort of blog post where it’s actually me talking about whatever is ruminating around in my mind. I have been pondering on a few posts that I haven’t written. Posts such as: What is the role of a mother? or Why are women so self-sacrificing? If you want to pick up these […]

  • Eerie Silence

    By on August 16, 2011
    I don’t think that our worlds could be further apart right now. Hagar is hot, dusty in the darkness of battle and I am just about keeping my head above water in the wetness of summer. I feel like a hamster in a wheel. I am clinging onto control in a tug of war between chaos and order. Two weeks […]

  • Don’t mention the blog….

    By on December 4, 2010
    I mentioned it once and I think I got away with it. Or, no communicating please we are British. We are such a repressed nation – it is very unBritish to talk about our lives with such honesty, unless we are art directing with Kath Kidston colours, lipstick and nicely iced cupcakes – the yummy mummy. But that’s not me […]
