What's new with me?

So this week has been pretty chaotic, but very exciting.

The kids are off school on study leave so I’ve had to don many hats this week. From mum’s taxi, to ruthless taskmaster, to builder of a dystopian post-apocalypse art project (don’t ask!), to dog groomer. Yep, I’m just living the dream here.... Read more of this blog post »

No-Mental

There is this huge common misconception among 'healthy' people that mental illnesses are incurable. As a result, they seem to demand from ill persons to behave and think in a certain way. Shrinks express such opinions loudly and without any shade of shame. Others just signalize these expectations... Read more of this blog post »

Notes towards a new novel

It's been nearly a year since my last serious attempt to start a novel crashed and burned (that was the computer game company novel set in the 90's idea), so I figure the time is right to roll up the proverbial sleeves and try again. I've decided that my next novel (currently untitled) will be in... Read more of this blog post »

New Release...new genre

Don't worry, I haven't abandoned erotica. I did, however, have an idea for a novel and I pursued it. The result? 6s and 7s which should drop in the next few days. This is a scifi/dystopian/cop drama. The feel is somewhere between Divergent and Bladerunner. Its NOT YA but it has that feel. It also... Read more of this blog post »

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
