Hope it's sunny where you are

Sunny St Ives

Almost 12 months ago my little family and me moved ourselves back North from the beautiful shores of St Ives in Cornwall after 6 years of making it our home. 
I can't believe how fast the time has moved but it's all been good, however, it doesn't mean I don't miss those stunning sunsets.

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.
