I've not had many mysteries in my life so far - or perhaps I've just not noticed. From now on I will be looking out for them.

One thing that might count, though. My mother used to 'channel' spirits, so she said, though I've never believed in that, or life after death. Before she died she gave me tape recordings of some sessions. The voice on it is hers yet sounds totally unlike her. That has always been inexplicable to me. A mystery that is unlikely to be solved, unless... (less)

Lockdown Prize – my entry 2nd in ‘Breakout’ category

A weird thing happened to me this week. I got an email from Fish Publishing saying my entry had got second place in the Pocket Prose category of the Lockdown Prize, an international writing competition on the theme of the Coronavirus-induced lockdown. Then I got another email saying it was actually second in another category, Breakout, for entries over the 100 word limit.

Jennie is on page 158 of 352 of Snap: So into this book now. One of my rare paperbacks was on offer in Waterstones, I didn’t start it till 2019 then took a while to get going as 5 others on go and writing my own crime novel. The weirdly wonderful plot, the teen characters living parentless in a newspaper-filled house, the gobby detectives and their cheeky humour... I had no idea Snap would resonate so much! Can see already why it did so well.

Haruki Murakami
“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”

“When we were invited to the White House we said we would accept the invitation on one condition. If it’s just a photo session we would not go—but if Obama would listen to what was in our hearts, then we would. The message came back: you are free to say whatever you wish. And so we did! It was quite a serious meeting. We talked about the importance of education. We discussed the United States’ role in supporting dictatorships and drone attacks in countries like Pakistan. I told him that instead of focusing on eradicating terrorism through war, he should focus on eradicating it through education. In”
