Reading and reviewing.

As I've had a pretty active reader/reviewer profile on Goodreads since 2013 or thereabouts, I've decided to limit my reads on my author profile to books by other authors, particularly those who are or who have been members of the RWA, other Goodreads authors, history, and books - fiction, researc...

Writing during a pandemic

If you're reading this, it's probably because you know me or you read my debut novel, Perfect Distraction. And through either of those, you probably know I'm an oncology pharmacist.

The First Thousand Years

Remember this is historical fiction, but it follows very closely to an actual historical line; real history. I also tried somewhat to keep the tone of the original writers. The ancient Bards. This is the ancient Welsh history going back to 1000 BC found in ancient texts at Oxford college in Brita... Read more of this blog post »

Who is Lizer Biggs?

That was the first question I was asked by my family. They wanted to know more about his character, his back story. I don't really get around to this much until towards the middle of the book. In retrospect, I could have written it differently - building his character and back... Read more of this blog post »

शब्द (Word) Hindi poem

हाँ. मैं शबद हुँ
कभी बोलता हुँ,
कभी रुकता हुँ
कभी झुकता हुँ
और, कभी झुकाता भी हुँ

किसी के मन को हँसाते
किसी के भावनों को दुतकारते
किसी की जिंदगी को निहारते
किसी की आतमा को झिंझोडते
और मैं चला -
कभी मुसकुराते, कभी सिसकते...

युधिषठिर का अंध था
दुरयोधन का अहंकार था

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for.

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
