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
It seems crazy, but four years ago today, on 15 February 2012, the concept album for The In-Between was released. Wow, does time fly. It really doesn’t feel like it can be that long ago that I was sitting at my computer clicking load, with that strange mix of anticipation and trepidation you get when you send something you’ve spent literally years creating out into … 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
Well, firstly, happy 2015! That came quick, didn’t it? I still remember when 2000 seemed modern… Anyway, I hope the coming year is filled with lots of awesome and suitably wondrous things for you 😀
Secondly, welcome to my new website!
Thanks for visiting! I’m super excited about it (hence all the exclamation marks, sorry), especially all the glowy buttons & the cool-slidey-picture-thing … 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…
When I last wrote about something proper and writing-related (as opposed to nerding out in NYC), Tainted Earth, the dystopian YA book I’d written, was nearing being taken to publishers … Read more
A few days ago, I came in late having been up to London to see a show. I had a touch of lady flu and was feeling pretty tired. I also had a recording session booked in for the next morning. All of this pointed towards the sensible thing being to go to sleep. My brain, however, had other ideas.
As I was getting … Read more
The last couple of months have been a little hectic. I’ve been juggling a mahoosive (yes, mahoosive) amount of work between four separate projects, hence no blog since… wow, June… oops. I promise, though, that I’ve been working hard and doing (mostly) sensible things, so I hope it’s justified. Anyway, I thought I’d just give a little update on one of the projects today – … Read more
So, a short while ago, I proof read the book I’ve been writing, as a whole book, for the first time (I’ve read it in smaller chunks before). Proof reading and rewriting is something I’ve had to do in musical theatre as well and one of the biggest things I’ve learnt as I’ve gone along – with any kind of writing – is that … 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
Starting a blog is something I’ve been meaning to do for ages. There are lots of things I’d like to write about, but I’ve just never got round to actually doing it. Well, it’s a new year and, what with new year’s resolutions and such floating around, we’re all supposed to be getting round to the things we meant to do but haven’t.
So, here … Read more
