HAPPY NEW YEAR!


OK, so I am a bit late saying it, but welcome to 2016!
I also want to say sorry for taking so long to post. Since my last one I've returned to my paid job full time leaving very little time to write (ouch!), then we had Christmas and now we're already speeding through January.
Anyway, here's to a great new year with plenty of writing and reading and using our imaginations.
Happy New Year!

Jake Bugg and The Beatles

From left: Tom, Jack, Jake, Grant

 Last year to celebrate 50 years since the release of The Beatles' 'Hard Days Night', US GQ took these brilliant photographs of Jake Bugg, his cousin Grant, and Jake's band Jack and Tom. I know this shoot is over a year old now but I still think the photographs and the styling are as amazing and refreshing as ever, so today I just had to share.






Have a great day

Ps. Thanks to GQ for the pictures.

The Paperback Writer Blog

It's been a while since I've refreshed this blog but after finding this gorgeous and appropriate photo on the Novella Award 2015 website I was smitten.
Writing and Coffee.
Perfect.

Autumn & Writing

There is something very special to me about autumn.
It features in almost everything I've written as an adult; not just published work but unpublished too.
There's something inspiring about the smell of wood fires, dark nights and cool winds that creates a certain atmosphere in which to cocoon my characters. 
It's the food that inspires too. Hearty stews and soups. Country pubs and open fires. Mulled wine and Champagne.
Halloween.
Bonfire Night.
Clothes too. Cosy socks and coats. Bobble hats and scarves. Snuggling up from the harsh wind outside and anticipating the festive season.

ps. Thank you for all the photographs I have borrowed to create this post x

Jake and Grant Bugg - What's in a Picture?

This picture of Jake Bugg and his cousin Grant brilliantly captures how deeply music influences my writing.
After seeing it I went on to create characters that have resulted in my current work in progress.
Of course the characters aren't Jake Bugg and his cousin but the image is one that has stayed with me for months and personally I'm really rather glad.

Always Effortlessly Cool - RIDE

The last time I saw Ride (the band) they looked like this and I was an 18 year old on my way to University and looked like this (I'm on the right) -
23 Years later they look like this,
and I look like this -
and me and my big sis are off to see them again in October for the first time since right back when and I feel just like I did all those years ago.
'Dreams Burn Down' - I can feel my spine tingling already.

#KEEP THE BAN

This Wednesday the Government of the United Kingdom will be voting whether to amend the current hunting legislation that restricts  how certain elite groups kill animals while hunting.
It's not too late to help whether you care or not, please stop David Cameron, Prime Minister from getting his way and ask your MP to support keeping the ban.
Please.
Sadly my local MP Derek Thomas (absolutely not my choice) for St Ives and Isles of Scilly IS supporting hunting defenceless animals including stags and hares as well as foxes.
Please, even if you are sick of seeing this stuff, help #Keep the Ban.
Thank you.
