I Wanna Tell You A Story

I was thinking about starting a new story serial for here. There, I’ve said it, so I guess I have to do it now. My finger did, for a moment, hover over the delete key for that sentence above, but I resisted. It appears the Borg were wrong, though I won’t...
Why do you write?

Why do you write?

What makes you want to write? This morning, the Ripl app, which I use for little videos for Instagram and Twitter, offered a Monday Motivation prompt, something it does each week. When I loaded it, however, and went to edit the Mark Twain quote it gave as a default, I...
Rebirth

Rebirth

I was wondering how to start this post today. I’ve been told that I have a unique take on chapter openings. They have a habit of seeming to wonder away on a tangent, taking the scenic route before slipping back down a side alley and tempting you to follow. A...

Tapping IT

Tapping IT

When I first moved into horror, both in my reading and my writing, there was one author I aspired to. I loved (love) Clive Barker, Dean Koontz and many more, but the writer I read the most, and wished to be, was Stephen King. I read all his books, including his memoir...
The Superheroes of Brazil

The Superheroes of Brazil

I spoke, in my last post, about the writing workshop I’d given at a local school (Ormiston South Parade Academy) and how much I enjoyed it. Well, today, I had the chance to visit the school again and talk to first year pupils in Miss Huddleston’s Brazil...
Imaginings of Italy

Imaginings of Italy
