It's helpful to list plot, events, characters and possibly scenes / chapters. You don't have to write sequentially. You can (like film & TV production / recording) write scenes / chapters in any order. For detective / Romance/thriller/Spy etc maybe write the ending first.(less)

Summer 2020 News

I’ve re-written a group of three books with some characters that are developed over three books: ‘Goths and Rooks’, ‘Jewels and Rooks’, and ‘The Wooing of Marion’.


I’ve decided that ‘Robin Morgan, Faerie Prince’ doesn’t work as a stand alone novel, apart from being only 28,000 words. It’s now about half way in on “Four Kids, One Foxe”, which will likely be written several times more as it’s set abo

Zoey Fools Around by Katherine Applegate
"Fun to re-read a book from my teens. The updates are odd though. Why update pop culture references when the story obviously takes place in a different era? Smoking in restaurants, no cell phones or social media - getting caught passing notes in class" Read more of this review »
The Celts by Peter Berresford Ellis
