good enough to write. It's coming out in February with massed
fanfares and another top notch blog tour care of Rachels
Random Resources (doing the hard work so I don't ha...

Weaponised Nostalgia – Or how my grandmother's toast may lead to Armageddon
There was something
magical about my grandmother's toast. I'm not sure quite what
benevolent spells she weaved over what was – to all intents and
purposes – just a slice of burned flour and water smeared in
congealed cow's milk, but it worked. She would han...

What The Fuck is a Blog Tour anyway?
If you follow me on
Twitter, Facebook or Instagram etc. etc. then you can't have failed
to notice that for the last ten days my book, The Craft Room ,

the fuck is a blog tour? I hear you all shouting. Well,
it does exactly what...

What I Go To Pride For
What I Go To Pride
For A lot of my life
these days involves trying very hard to be a decent person in the

Funerals, Friendship, Death and Birthdays

your planned pulled-the-day-off-work-for-my-birthday activities of
lying about in the garden drinking cider and...

I'm terrified the new Doctor Who is going to be shit
I have honestly not
been as nervous for a new series of Dr Who since the announcement it
was coming back ten years ago. Last year I was
utterly overjoyed to hear Jodie Whittaker was going to be the next
Doctor, a woman. Not just a woman, but one who I'd bee...

I'm Not A Fan
I'm Not A Fan The only time you'll
find me spinning around is on the dancefloor, though come to think of

That Facebook 10 albums thing that everybody's been doing
10 all time
favourite albums over 10 days. Albums that really made an impact and
are still on your playlists, even if only now and then. Post the cover, no
need to explain and nominate a person each day with each album to do
the same. Well, that's not
hard ...
