Thanks for your question and you thoughts on my writing. I do enjoy writing - always have - and have a new collection due out at the end of October. Every story in 'Time is of the Essence' has something to do with time, how we view it, how much of it we have, and what we do with the time we are given. The stories are a mix of light-hearted romps and serious drama, with every emotion in between.

I'll be offering a giveaway here on Goodreads, just like I did with Point of View, and this time, I will also be offering a pre-order option for the Kindle version through Amazon, for 99p! (less)

Being a writer means I can use these observations and create believable characters, give them a task and watch as they use their own attributes to find creative ways to complete them. I've always lived in a bit of a fantasy world of my creation - Now I get the opportunity to invite others in! Welcome!(less)

A scintillating read

I live a good murder mystery and Blake Pierce didn't let me down. Avery is a relatable hero and the twists and turns she took getting to the killer kept me interested. Well done, Blake.
