Sometimes writers have stories that they just can’t get out of their heads. These are stories that they keep coming back to over the years, stories that they keep trying to finish, keep trying to get just right. Although a part of me still feels a little imposter-y calling myself a writer (I know, why is that?), I do have one such story.
The earliest … Read more
Having realised I’ve not done a blog since March, I thought it was about time for a quick update! So, what’s been happening since then?
The short and slightly dull answer is that I have mainly been sat in front of my laptop, typing in WORDS. Many, many words. (The lack of blogs is because by the time I’ve abandoned the day’s attempt to make … Read more
A very Happy New Year to you all! Yes, 2016 is upon us in all its futuristic-y sounding splendor. Though still without hoverboards, we are now venturing into the unknown beyond that foretold by Back to the Future. Good luck everyone.
Like most years for most people, 2015 was a year of ups and downs for me, but probably the biggest highlight (obviously alongside … Read more
The last few months have been an interesting and, at times, quite challenging time for me. One of the main things I’ve been working on over the past year is a novel called Echoes (a cyber thriller about a computer hacker called Mallory Park) and around mid January, it finally became time for it to go on submission to publishers. In effect, this meant that … Read more
I realised it’s been four months since my last blog. Erm, yes, sorry. There is a good reason, however, and I thought it was probably time for an update. So, well, here it is…

Ah, the first blog of 2014, and only nearly two months in…! Okay, so things have been rather busy recently, but, hopefully better late than never, here’s a little update on what’s been going on…
The three months since my last blog have been spent mainly working on two projects; redrafting the book I’ve been writing, Tainted Earth, and composing the music for a … Read more
One of the projects I’ve been working on recently is a book. As in, a novel. With no music or songs or anything like that. Crazy times, I know. I’ve loved reading since I was little and decided about October last year that an idea I’d had for my next musical would actually work much better as a book (even wrote a blog on it … Read more
I realise it’s been a while since my last blog – but there’s been a good reason for the absence! Namely, I’ve been redrafting my book [more on that here] and I seem to work much better when I focus solely on that and turn off the internet (shocking, I know).
As of yesterday, 123,447 words later, I have finally finished draft two … Read more
Here we are, folks; Blog 2. Let excitement ensue… So, in the first blog, I mentioned I was working on something else at the moment. Well, I’d finally like to tell you all what it is!
When I decided to start writing The In-Between, many moons ago (or almost four years), I had two ideas for musicals in my head. [Well, being strictly true, … Read more
