Well folks...thought I should just let you know that due to ongoing issues with David J Publishing all my books barring Not Your Legacy are no longer available. This situation is however, temporary and all my back catalogue of books will be re-published under my own name in the new year once they have been brought up to date. I couldn't be more pleased with this opportunity to revisit some of my old work. In fact I may even redesign a few of the covers! I'll keep you all posted as soon as they are live x

This is a fantastic ad. Made me feel quite emotional. Just goes to show you can never read to your child too much. Needless to say we WILL be reading tonight!

Spent the last twelve hours on this sketch of the Titanic leaving Harland and Wolf docks in Belfast.  Still needs work but I'm quite pleased with it.

My first impressions were the place smelt bad and it was dark and dingy. But as we had booked over the phone using our tastecard+ we decided to give it a chance. We ordered drinks which the waiter brought to us promptly. His manner was polite and affable. But this did not seem to soothe the people sitting next to us who had waited over half an hour for their food. They left a few minutes later - still hungry I might add. I thought perhaps they were just fussy - the complaining type. So we ordered our food and hoped for the best. Within the space of ten to fifteen minutes my beef bourguignon with mash appeared followed by my sons seafood risotto. The bourguignon was passable, the risotto was dreadful. Slimy, bland and covered in some sort of bitter unidentifiable salad leaves. There was also a piece of fried bread on the side. A heel. I suspect it was meant to be sundried tomato but it tasted like it had been flavoured with out of date ketchup. Three quarters of the way through my meal they brought me the root vegetables that were my chosen accompaniment. Perhaps they intended it as a dessert? The worst disappointment was yet to come. After booking via the tastecard, I then found out AFTERWARDS that they do not accept the Tastecard for the lunchtime menu. Only the A la Carte menu. Strange considering we had booked using the Tastecard for a lunch time booking that no one bothered to tell us until it was time to pay??? Their explanation was that it says clearly on the website that this is one of the terms of the offer. I found this hard to believe as I had been on the website only half an hour earlier and had seen no such thing. I paid FULL price even though I had booked with the 50% discount card and went home to check the website again. The bottom line is; NO ONE MADE THIS CLEAR. The website says: Please Note: The tastecard discount is not available on Celebration Days including Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day etc. The discount does not apply to the Sunday Roast menu. So I called the Hotel. They squirmed out it by saying that somewhere....on the website it says 'cannot be used in conjunction with other offers.' I've yet to find this page AND they had the cheek to say I hadn't mentioned the Tastecard in the first place. Calling your customers liars is not advisable guys! And what other offers? It was a lunchtime menu. Nothing more. Awful customer service. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. Do yourself a favour and go just a little bit further afield to The Jamaica Inn where they do a delicious Chorizo and prawn linguine or if you have the Tastecard go to The Governor Rocks in Donaghadee. Shabby chic, awesome value, great tasting food.
