Marvel’s Stan Lee…RIP

I have spent the best of my life being entertained by this mans imagination. I was never a fan of comics, but the films made from Stan’s creations, have given me hours of entertainment. Just recently, my wife and I, watched Venom at the cinema. We have one of those membership cards where we canContinue reading “Marvel’s Stan Lee…RIP”

Christmas jólabókaflóð?

Well, that’s a word to get your tongue around, huh? I had never heard of it until recently, when a friend told me all about this beautiful Icelandic tradition, that she insisted that we do this year.

Gosh, where does the time go!.. I took a little break over Christmas and New year… and then I ended up going away for some R&R in the sunshine… However, I was at least working during this time! My next book, The Promise, is almost ready to be published. I’m excitedly nervous as always. IContinue reading “I am back…. I think!”

Music to write to..

So, I don’t mean music that you listen to that helps you get writing, but the music you put to your novel. Like a soundtrack. When I think of my characters and how I am going to write the scene, I often see it in my head like a movie and in those moments whenContinue reading “Music to write to..”
