Adele Archer was born in Bethnal Green, East London in the 1970s, the second youngest of six children. Growing up in a council flat in not the most salubrious part of town, she was always a dreamer - and her imagination was the best escape of all. Adele was writing books from the age of eleven - but inventing stories in her head long before that.

But now I'm finished (or nearly finished as I'm editing two books at once) I may well find I DO fall prey to a case of writer's block on my next book! Then I'll be the one asking for advice! But in my experience, if you're writing a book you're enthusiastic about - it shouldn't happen too often.(less)

There's a whimsical humour within their relationship, as well as intensity. These old novels have it all sewn up as far as chemistry goes - sadly lacking in modern literature. But can I choose a movie couple too? Sally Albright and Harry Burns. Best movie couple ever. End of.(less)

(Falling at) the Final Hurdle

Penned Friday 5th July 2019: [image error]


I was just considering the disgusting prospect of writing a first draft of this blog on paper (ugh! Paper? What is this, the bloody dark ages?), when the nurse called me in for my consultation. And my two-and-a-half-hour Minor Injuries Unit stint was finally over, with a suspected ‘badly sprained ankle’. Now I’m lying on the sofa with my super-fat foot...

Jayson is starting Make Good Art: There's a week left in 2017 and I'm two books shy of my reading challenge. Time to break glass on the emergency box and dust off the really short books I've held in reserve for just such an instance. Enter Neil Gaiman, who's always good for such things: I can also recommend Fortunately, the Milk and Odd and the Frost Giants for quick reads.
