‘Oh! What a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive…’ That line has been running through my head all of this morning, and though Scott doubtless had specific thoughts of lust and betrayal at its heart when he first penned Marmion (which is, after all, essentially crime fiction), I’ve always thought it apt for writers in… Read More Echoes of Scott

Very excited about my new collection coming out in the spring with Penkhull Press in 2016 titled Fables and Fabrications. The cover may be tweaked but essentially this is it! . Fables and Fabrications is scheduled as one of the first in the new ‘Penkhull Slims’ range collections and novellas.
Having just passed Hallowe’en and its various misconceptions – of which I will write another time – we are fast approaching Bonfire Night. Most folks across the UK will be thinking of the old rhyme.
