The one where I apologise to Podrick for touching his chest at Oz Comic Con (kinda—it was actually pretty nice. True story).

Photos of Oz Comic Con before and after I felt up a celeb and wept during a panel. I don't look so scary now, do I?

News:  BBCOne: We can confirm that Sherlock will return to BBC One for a Special, followed by a series of three new episodes.
After the briefest of exiles, Sherlock comes back only to face one of his biggest mysteries yet. Why is Moriarty’s face being broadcast on every television in the land?
Shooting on the special will begin in January 2015, with the series shooting later next year.
The Game is on - again!

Melburnians! Enter the fabulous Melbourne Oz Comic Con Giveaway on my blog, a family pass to attend the event at the Royal Exhibition Building on 5—6 July! (tickets only, you'd need to make your own way to the event).

We may have missed out on seeing Benedict Cumberbatch (no bitterness there at all) but don't miss out on the other cool cats at the Melbourne Oz Comic Con!

The Truth about Surviving an Aneurysm. 

At the end of the day, it’s luck, total random, horrible luck.

I may have had an crappy showing on Hot Seat a couple of weeks ago, but a remarkable thing happened afterwards. And it had to do with surviving an aneurysm.

Plus it doesn't have that wonderful old book scent. Just plastic and that chemical electricity smell.
 
Well Played Book!

Ever wondered how your brain reacts when writing? Some scientists have too....

For the first time, researchers have used fMRI scanners to track the brain activity of writers as they created fiction. The results have drawn strong reactions from other scientists.

Why My Novel's Characters Will Never Say "I Love You".

http://kimberleymagain.com/2014/07/03/characters-will-never-say-love/

Love. It's what we live for and strive for in our real lives. And yet, in my opinion, the words, "I Love You" in a novel are ultimate conversation stoppers.

To celebrate my 2 year blogaversary & the fact that I'm a HUGE nerdy and geeky thing who can't craft for sh*t, I'm giving away the Caffeine necklace.

Introduction
Writer of dark spec fiction. Blogger. Editor. Compulsive Shutterbug. 

Trivia tragic, aneurysm survivor, occasional F-bomb dropper, horror movie specialist and mum to two spirited daughters. 

I am a word nerd who prefers Balderdash to Chess, a maths geek who's never met a spreadsheet she didn't like and a pop culture/cult-TV geek. I'm not above some "The Walking Dead", "Sherlock" and "Supernatural" fangirldom.

I've swapped my corporate HR stripes for a PJ-clad existence working for myself as a writer/editor/content developer.
