COMING UP FOR AIR; FIRST DRAFT FINISHED!

COMING UP FOR AIR; FIRST DRAFT FINISHED!

Today, with the final sentence of “Only boring people get bored” I finished the first draft of my non-fiction manuscript about relationships, COMING UP FOR AIR. If I said I was emotional, that would be an understatement… I’m actually in shock! I started this manuscript over 10 years ago, inspired by the somewhat sensational breakup […]

COMING UP FOR FOR AIR; DRAFT CHAPTER PEEK!

So, here it is, the moment you’ve all been waiting for. The project that started over 10 years ago is finally inching its way to completion. I’m so close. I can almost taste it!  So close in fact that I am now able to share with you the complete draft chapter listing. Draft meaning that […]

ANGELS & DEMONS PREMIERS AT CASA BELLA

ANGELS & DEMONS PREMIERS AT CASA BELLA

“The room was an atmospheric chamber of shadows and pools of light…One by one, the guests, albeit somewhat apprehensively, took their seats at the Lord Demon’s  table” Casa Bella’s Angels & Demons may have taken place a few weeks ago now but the unique impression that the evening left on my guests and I will, […]

THE BEST OF FRIENDS

THE BEST OF FRIENDS

“The idea for the ludicrous suggestion that children should be discouraged from forming best friendships can only have been spawned from the same dimwits who called for the banning of a red pen in the classroom.” Okay, so this week a head teacher (yes I said head teach, as in a person who is supposed […]

HOW TOXIC ARE YOUR FRIENDS?

HOW TOXIC ARE YOUR FRIENDS?

So, are you a ‘naysayer’, no? How about a ‘sob sister? Maybe a radiator? Or are you a drain? What am I talking about? Why friends of course. There’s a whole dictionary of adjectives out there used to describe the best or the worst friend we can be and can have.  Well,  not an official […]

Casa Bella’s Devil’s Dinner Party 2; the gifts and the curses

Casa Bella’s Devil’s Dinner Party 2; the gifts and the curses

So, here I am, a couple of days after the night before and what a night! I think I can safely say that Casa Bella’s Devil’s Dinner Party 2 turned out to be one of the ‘wildest’ dinner parties yet! I dare say that much of that was not helped by the introduction of a relatively new […]

Letting go; are you strong enough?

Letting go; are you strong enough?

So, it’s 02:50 in the morning and here I am writing this. Why is it you may ask that I’m up way beyond the witching hour? Well, worrying myself silly of course, you know, in the same way most parents would upon discovering that one of their offspring has decided to backpack around Europe or […]

Casa Bella’s wigs, laughter, trophies and murder

And so here we are, 2 days later (sounds like a film title doesn’t it). The balloons have been deflated, the posters taken down, the jewels stolen and Casa Bella’s dining room returned to its usual state in anticipation of tomorrow’s formal business meeting. Casa Bella’s first Murder Mystery is over so what was it like? When […]

Casa Bella’s Halloween; the nightmare before Christmas

So, it’s the day before Casa Bella’s Halloween but it feels oddly like the night before Christmas! Although, I guess a more apt depiction would be, the day before the show; finally, after more than 3 months in the making (or rehearsal), Casa Bella’s Halloween is here,  and what an event it will be. Who […]
