About this author

I lit the fire for the first time tonight. That’s a sure sign the winter is truly upon us. It’s stormy out, the trees bend under the force of the wind and the rain is beating against the window, like the tapping of dead fingers on the glass. Stay warm, my friends.

message 1: by Gemma

Gemma Mawdsley A writer dies and goes to heaven. Here he sees thousands of other writers all chained to desks tapping away on their computers.
“This is heaven!” he exclaims. “Is this is heaven, what is hell like?”
“Let me show you,” St Peter offers.
So they go down to hell and here they find it exactly as it was in heaven, thousands of writers chained to desks.
“I don’t understand,” the man says. “How is hell any different to heaven.”
“Ah, you see,” St Peter says. “In heaven you have a chance at being published.

Fledgling writers take heart.
