I have said this before but, I love the way that language can be used to manipulate the way people think about something. Take, for example, the way that people who have entered a country though means other than the official channels have been described before and after the recent U.S. Presidential election. Prior to […]

Protesting Democracy

In 2015, when Britain voted for a right-of-centre Conservative majority that no one had predicted, there were protests on the street from left-wingers. In June 2016 when Britain voted to leave the EU when no one expected it, left-wingers were on the streets protesting. And now that Trump has been elected President when no one […]

A Message to the People of the USA

I’d like to say something to the folks across the pond who are feeling the kind of shock, disappointment and, yes, even anger, that I felt on the morning of June 24th. Democracy sucks. It’s a flawed system and sometimes you don’t get the result you want or expect. But it’s the best system we […]


If there’s one thing I hate more than anything else, it’s Marmite. But that aside, what I hate, really hate, particularly in public figures, is hypocrisy.

Word Count Update

I’ve not added as many words to “A Wounded Heart” since my last update as I would have liked—just over a thousand. One the other hand, The Truths We Live has grown by just under 4000 words, so that’s not too bad. Overall, that’s 5000 words in about a week and a half. I’m quite […]

FaceBook Ban -They don’t like Nipples

So, I was browsing through my Facebook feed on my phone last night when I was suddenly logged out of the app and out of Messenger. “Bit odd,” I thought, so I tried to log back in but once I’d done that the feed failed to load. I gave it a couple of hours, then fired […]

WIPs Update

I’ve set myself a target word count for both A Wounded Heart and The Truths We Live and I’m working towards having a first draft of both finished by the end of 2016. Currently, both books are just under 20% ‘finished’ – if you go by my target. Of course, I’ve never been very good […]

Two More Books Added to Kindle Unlimited

Two more of my books have been added to Kindle Unlimited, meaning if you have a KU subscription, you can read them at no extra cost! First up is the last of the four Ladz “Local Lovelies” short stories, Episode #65, Carla. This one features a feisty blonde estate agent who stripped off for the […]

Ladz Local Lovelies Illustrations Showcased on

Back in the day, I wrote a series of short stories for (the sadly missed) Ruthie’s Club called the Ladz Local Lovelies series. The premise was based on the weekly lads mags that were popular at the time like Nuts and Zoo (both of which are now defunct) and their habit of getting hot young […]

Getting Closer

an Excerpt from “Eternally & Evermore” People have asked me before now about this book’s title. “It’s a bit soppy,” they say. “Where did you get it?” The answer is… long winded. But the best way to show you is with a couple of excerpts from the book, like this one: A new song began, […]
