Today I thought I’d share my 5 small steps to becoming a writer. Being a writer is a joyous thing, and I’m sure there’s a writer in all of us. I never ever thought my life would lead me to writing a blog, let alone a novel, but fate has a funny way of guiding us. I’ve been guided towards my blog and my novel over the years, but I think a few other key…

I love books and when I’m offered the chance to review one, well I get a teeny bit excited! I am so chuffed to share my book review of Maggie’s Kitchen by Caroline Beecham here on the blog. For those of you with an interest in WWI and food, this book is the perfect read! You’re thinking, that’s an odd combination, right?

  Warren has recently finished university, so it’s time for me to focus on editing my book. Of course, with this comes a desperate need for stationery, so I thought I’d write a little stationery must have list for writers! Yes, this may be a way to avoid diving headfirst into the editing process, but it’ll surely get me in the mood! Stationery Must Haves for Writers We all love stationery, right?! Just holding a…

We see them open up about their lives, have a giggle and to top it all off, they save the hall from closing down. I haven’t been to Tramshed before, so I was keen to see what kind…

  This is the week it all begins; Festival of Voice Wales started on 5th June and runs until the 17th, and if you’re not sure what it’s all about then read on… I was first introduced to Festival of Voice during the summer of 2016, the year it all began.

    Halloween slime? Okay then, no problem! We love a bit of slime making, we do it so often I imagine we could all do it in our sleep! We don’t often combine slimes though (I know, we should totally do this more!) so we were really excited to create a set of three colours for Halloween and then mix them together! The way we make slime is really simple, but it did take…

What inspired you to write your book? At first this was going to be a screen play. I’ve written 2 in the past. But the bad taste of dealing with L.A. agents and the like came right back. So the thought of writing a book that I could have total control over if I so chose to was a no-brainer. On the business side, millions watch the Antiques Roadshow here, in Europe, and Australia.

Warning : You won’t find much of the past tense here.   Well, what can I say? It would have felt wrong not to write something,anything, about the man that truly (to this day) helps me at times when I feel lost, weak or weird. 11 Things That Remind Me of David Bowie: The Prettiest Star I love David Bowie. Ever since I first heard Starman on mixed tape, I was taken prisoner by his…
