I'm a writer, blogger and lover of books and all things literature. I used to be an Accountant, until I rediscovered my love for writing in 2006 and became a full-time writer in 2008. I'm the creator and one of the writers for the fiction series and book, In My Dreams It Was Simpler.

My novel, "Nothing Comes Close" is a spin-off from the series and has just been published by Accomplish Press. I also write short stories, flash fiction, poems and articles for magazines, and I'm working on a collection of short stories and flash fiction.

Do all your pending chores (I've had mental breakthroughs while washing the dishes), then come back to your writing with a refreshed mind. If you want to, you can skip the particular niggling bit of the story and work on something else. Once you get into the flow, you'll be fine!(less)

Hi everyone!

Introducing my new project:

Calling all writers, aspiring authors and future novelists! If you've been thinking about writing a novel "someday", that's never going to happen! (Hint: There is no "someday" in the calendar)

You have to decide that the time to do it is NOW!

I've created a challenge for you (and me) to get us writing a novel in a short time. It's called the 100-Day Novel W... Read more of this blog post »
