Only 8 days until I jet off to Brisbane, and a bunch of appearances at this year's Brisbane Writers Festival . I'll be appearing across both open and kids' 'Word Play' programs, as well as presenting a short fiction Masterclass, so I'll be plenty busy. Catc...

KSP GHOST STORY NIGHT
Last week, Luscious, the kids, and I met up with our good friends Kris and Kim, and moseyed on up to the Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers Centre for their spooky night of ghost stories. Lyn and I had entered stories in their ghost competition, and had be...

TWO MONTHS AWAY
Two months since my last post. All of June and July, and not a peep.  Yeah, there's a reason for that. Suffice to say, things did not go well for a while. It's a little vaguebooky, but I'll talk more about it in later posts.  For now, here I am, on the last...

TRUMBO AND THE TRUTH IN BLOGGING: OVER TO YOU, PEEPS
Spent last night watching the dramatised documentary Trumbo , which is based, to a large extent, upon letters written by Dalton Trumbo during the period of his blacklisting. One thing that really shone through was just how literate, wide-ranging and incisiv...

I SHALL WRITE TO THE TIMES ABOUT THIS!
Maybe it's the English-Boy upbringing, but there are some images and icons that stand above others as some sort of acknowledgment of hasn't-he-done-well? -ishness. Running out onto Wembley for the FA Cup final. Playing the London Palladium. Doing Hamlet at ...

GOT ME A FESTIVAL
Last weekend was that most wonderful reminder of why I got into this writing gig: the guest appearance at a Writers Festival. In this instance, I was flown across the country and put up in a hotel in my favourite City of them all, the beautiful city of Bris...

BRICKTOBER
Bricktober is six weeks away, and I'm slowly getting my act in place and piecing together my display for this year. Will it be big? What do you think? (Hint: I'm 5ft 10) This year's promising to be even bigger and better than 2015, so come on down to the Ca...

ALL ABOARD!
It's not always about the writing, you know. This Sunday, I'll be staffing a table at the annual AMRA Model Train Show at the Claremont Showgrounds. No, I haven't added model trains to my list of hobbies that wouldn't get me kissed by a girl if I was single...

A CLASSIC, YOU SAY?
Thanks to the lovely Kylie Ding, here's the full text of The Times' review of Magrit . It's as spoileriffic as all buggery, but how's about that last line?

GARCING UP THE WRONG TREE
Thanks to a rainy weekend, I managed to put the finishing touches on a couple of GARC* MOCs I've been fiddling about with for a while, and which will (eventually) be part of a display for this year's Bricktober . So, for your entertainment, here are the Tug...
