This is a reading from my novel Three Sisters, Three Queens, which is out tomorrow in paperback. One of my favourite things about writing historical fiction is that you can use humour to bring a scene to life. This particular scene is drawn from the historical record...'Margaret, who must have he... Read more of this blog post »

The family unit meets me at the airport in Quito, as I fly direct from the Galapagos Islands. We only have a week left of our trip and in my absence, they have been robbed on a bus in the mountains on their way into Quito.

Theme of the recurring villain, what are your thoughts?

A dozen roses? A box of chocolates? Well, not exactly...

That would certainly be a nice way to mark Valentine's Day, but I'm already several days late, and fresh out of flowers and candy. So all I can offer are my heartfelt best wishes—plus my usual self-serving news report.

The ability to communicate with one another through language is a key attribute of what it is to be human. In this we are not alone. Birds, for example, communicate with one another through song.

Your poem has been rejected. Again. But don’t you wish the rejections were a bit more truthful? After all, we live in an age where “truth” is under siege. It needs all the help it can get. And boiler-plate rejections are just so impersonally vanilla. Let’s try a little chocolate piz...

Question:

Isn’t a dragon a symbol of Satan in the Bible? Why do you have good dragon characters in your stories? Aren’t they supposed to be evil?

Answer:

The Bible uses a dragon to symbolize Satan, but God also describes Leviathan as one of his greatest creatures in Job 41, and t...

Spells of Old is sitting at approximately 59,000 words. This makes it currently about half the length of Ancient Ruins, but I want to stress that the story will be as long as it takes to tell the current story arc. I’m not sure how long it’s going to be in the end, but at this point in the story...
