Frustration...

Lately I’ve been so good with my writing schedule. I’ve been bouncing between my next two Dirty Laundry books. This week has thrown a wrench into my groove. The day job and other stresses have weighed down my drive. I’m frustrated with myself and yet anxious to get these stories in your hands. Thoug Read more of this blog post »

Love not Allegiance (A Sonnet)

If I am remembered O Soldier of Destiny,
Remember me with love not allegiance.
If you place me on the altar of your heart,
Make it not exclusive but exude acceptance.
When the darkness around bothers you,
Bask all you want in my timeless light.
But when you see others in darkness,
Forget your needs and ser Read more of this blog post »

When She Cheated - I never thought I would write a book!

I honestly never thought I would write a book in my lifetime. I was always the kid playing with the fonts and margins on my school writing assignments to get to 5 pages!

Author interviewing character. Terri and Briony.

I stepped onto the old oak floorboards of The Red Lion’s top bar and searched the pub for Briony. She’d asked me to meet her here because it’s not far from her flat and she said it’s where she comes with her friends.


A small round woman with oddly rigid blonde hair called to me from the lower bar

The Bluestocking, vol 150

Happy 150th Bluestocking!

This week, I went on the Deliciously Ella podcast to talk about how women’s behaviour is scrutinised, not least because newspapers love to illustrate trend stories with fit twentysomethings.

And sorry: I had planned more hoopla for the 150th edition of The Bluestocking; u

Allen Bubble

I love revising. I really do. But sometimes it’s such a challenge revising rhyming stories. It’s like working on a puzzle. I pore over my rhyming dictionary and online thesaurus and the words start to blur. I jot down lines that don’t have anything that rhymes with them. I rack my brain and rearrang

The answer to the question, “When does your mustard flower?” tells you much about your garden. Namely, it will reveal the weather where your garden is located, and whether you have a relatively mild winter, or a snow-laden, frigid and dormant stretch from mid-November to April-ish. Knowing your

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
