Rebecca  Reilly Rebecca Reilly's blog:
Just before my seventeenth birthday, I woke to my mother standing above me with a chef's knife raised and ready to plunge. I screamed. She lowered the knife and walked out of my bedroom without saying a word.

It wasn't the first time she'd raised a weapon, or her fists, against me. No, never when... Read more of this blog post »

I tell my sis

that I think

I’ve burnt bridges

publishing a poem

about the Aus Lit

industry & that

I will probably

never get published

in this country


& she says


why’d you do it for then?


& I say


I don’t know…

maybe because deep down

and I want to stop writing

because I’m...

It's near the end of the month, but due to computer outages, visits, my brain going full Halloween, and switching horses midstream I'm maybe halfway done with my manuscript. But, it still seemed like a good time to share a small preview.

Rain rolled off the rim of his hat in narrow ropes, like strung glass beads, slipping one by one off a broken strand. Raindrops bounced off the pavement as if those same beads were spilling onto the ground…flung carelessly into the varying paths of an oblivious crowd. Koichiro watched the f...

Love the ARROW TV series with super hunk Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell). Although we have a soft spot for Slade/Deathstroke (Manu Bennett – anyone remember him from Spartacus? Let’s just say – wow.) The new season looks AWESWOME!




Is it just us, or will Oliver and Felicity get together? About time!!...

Rik asked me how to write fiction based on your real life. Almost all of my stories have a dash of truth in them. How can I not be inspired by all of the chaos constantly in my life? ;) In the past, I’ve tried writing about true events thinly veiled as fiction, but it was hard and I didn’t really e...

FlyingAlthough there are a good number of academic papers which examine ‘fear of flying’, [recent example] the number of scholarly dissertations which cover ‘fear of flying’ amongst a specific subset of air travellers â�� viz. pilots – is very low. Perhaps just one.

Once again the conflict in Gaza has generated an outburst of anti-Semitism across Europe. Some of the stories coming out of France are horrific. As for Germany, even the faintest whiff of anti-Semitism is an outrage; clearly those responsible for assuaging that country’s collective guilt still ha...
