NEW LIFE; APPROVE OR DECLINE?

NEW LIFE; APPROVE OR DECLINE?

“…if that is your view and you believe so strongly in it then don’t shout a completely different message on your website. That smacks of hypocrisy to me.

MAGIC, RELIGION & HELL HOUSES

  “Our fascination with fear is a curious one, we’re addicted to the exhilaration of fear but only if we know we’re safe.  From rollercoasters through to haunted houses, some of us subject ourselves to extreme situations for a quick thrill but some terror is all too real…” And so autumn is upon us once […]

MY PSYCHOSIS BEYOND THE BOOK

MY PSYCHOSIS BEYOND THE BOOK

“there were sleepless nights (nothing new there for a writer) and the belief that every creak of the house and click of the dishwasher was someone trying to break through the front door…”   So, here we are.

SINS OF THE MISGUIDED

Where exactly do these dimwits who purport to know so much about the religious sensitivities of the masses crawl from?” What does Easter (also known as PASCH or PASCHA)  mean to you? The arrival of spring, a long weekend, clock change or the resurrection of the Cadbury’s ‘sickly sweet’ cream egg? Your answer is most likely going to be […]

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS OR WEIRDNESS?

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS OR WEIRDNESS?

Picture the scene: you’re walking down the street, minding your own business, and a person with a beaming smile accosts you, hands you a bottle of water and says to have a drink on them. What’s your reaction?  Gratitude or suspicion? Well, if it was suspicion then you wouldn’t be alone, especially here in the […]

PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER KEEPS READERS GUESSING

PARASOMNIA; THE SLEEP DEMONS AND YOU

So what are they like for you? Creepy, happy, scary, terrifying or downright x rated? Most of us dream every single night, we just don’t remember, which is really disappointing when it’s a good dream.

WHY A CHANGE IS AS GOOD AS A REST

WHY A CHANGE IS AS GOOD AS A REST

  You would have thought somebody had hacked off one of my limbs! I was onto the agency almost immediately, “I can’t stay here. I have research. I have video conferences. This is unacceptable!”   So, here I am, in my fourth and final week here on the Southwest coast of England, working on my […]

CONTROVERSIAL MANUSCRIPT’S PUBLISHING DATE BROUGHT FORWARD

“And, of course, with unvarnished truth there’s often controversy.  Whilst many willingly chose to be involved in this project there are others that would much rather their involvement, their actions remain undisclosed” Yes yes, the rumours are true!  Oh okay, maybe they aren’t rumours because I started them but my publishing schedule for 2015 has […]
