Morning, all.

I just logged into this account to check some book info, and discovered that I had messages in my inbox (wtf?). I won't be answering them, because that would be committing to coming back to check for replies, and I can't do that right now. I'm sorry.

Something you never knew about me….. I have OCD.
If I am in a meeting/classroom, the desks have to have the grain going the same way! My team at the day job laugh at me and occasionally change them around just to see what my reaction is.

If anyone is interested... here is a video of me being weird at Book Bash.

As you might comprehend/appreciate after watching the video, I have no career waiting for me in broadcasting (or other jobs in front of the camera).

Viime viikolla sain loistouutisia: Elina Ahlbäck Literary Agencyn agentit ovat myyneet Kesyttömän ja Uhanalaisen oikeudet kiinalaiselle Modern Pressille. Susirajaa voi siis tulevaisuudessa lukea kiinaksi! Olen tästä aivan tajuttoman innoissani, enkä vähiten siksi, että kyseessä ovat ensimmäiset k...

Koska olen viikonlopun jäljiltä edelleen täynnä kaikenlaisia kirjallisia ajatuksia, huvittunut monenlaisesta hauskuudesta ja pöllämystyneen onnellinen kaikista kivoista kohtaamisista, en juuri nyt kykene keskittymään varsinaisen con-raportin laadintaan. Tyydyn vain sanomaan, että kiitos ja kivaa...

As it says on the tin. I've just typed ****ENDS**** on the mss of Taste the Bright Lights 2, aka Maybe Thursday You Can Sleep. I may have had a little sniffle imagining Lisa in the final scene, but that could also be because there is no more World Cup.

Sometimes when I've felt threatened I've acted out in ways that seemed to bring more of the same situation. I found it can lead to a constant feeling of misery and fear spiralling out of control and leading me to feel I live in a hostile universe. I found it hard to get out of this and eventually...

A friend laid her husband to rest yesterday. He’d been fighting metastatic colon cancer for more than a year, and when traditional treatments didn’t work, they tried an experimental therapy that ravaged his body, but never his spirit. If he grappled with fear, as he must have, he...

On July 14, 1223, the French king, Philippe Capet, died at age 57. Since I showed such admirable restraint when mentioning Edward I’s death, I feel obliged to do as much for Philippe. Anyone who has read Lionheart or Ransom already knows my opinion of him, anyway! It was probably a happy day for... Read more of this blog post »

I’ve taken, of late, to closing my cat Spirit in the bathroom at night with food, litter, water, a couple of places to sleep—he seems to like the sink—and a toy; all to prevent his sitting outside my bedroom door at anywhere from 5 a.m. on to sing me the song of his people at full volume.
