I was born in Australis in 1975 to an Australian mother and English father. I grew up in both the country and the city but remain a country girl at heart. I studied archaeology at university and worked in that field for several years until I developed Rheumatoid Arthritis.

I currently live in Sheffield, South Yorkshire in the UK and spend my spare time writing.

Feeding Creativity

A bit of back story. Publishing my first collection of short horror stories has coincided nicely with my father and step-mother making the trip over to England from Australia so I could take a bit of a break. When they come over, they like to drive around and see all the green that is England rather than the drought riddled countryside of Australia.





I live on Derbyshire’s doorstep, which is not...

This took me quite a bit longer to read than I had anticipated. Usually with something like this I will devour it in a couple of sittings, but I struggled. I didn't find it particularly engaging and the personal family drama put a dampener on it for ...more

This was a very visceral book. It was hard hitting and emotional, very well written. I simply could not stop reading it and finished it in a single sitting about 2am. I highly recommend if you enjoy reading about the true nature of conflict.

Katia M. Davis and 19 other people liked John's review of The Last Tribe:
The Last Tribe by Brad Manuel
" The Last Tribe is a post-apocalyptic novel about meeting up, cooking and eating, cooking and eating, cooking and eating, and flying off into the sunset. This is a fabulously vapid adversity-free narrative about menial logistics and food. Avoid it..." Read more of this review »

The Last Tribe by Brad Manuel
"While this isn't the worst book I've ever read/heard, it was nowhere near the best. I had issues with the story itself, so much so that I stopped listening and returned it unfinished.

My biggest issue with this book: NO CONFLICT! The surviving Dix..." Read more of this review »

"The Apocalypse by Betty Crocker.

I suppose I should preface this with a spoilers warning but honestly what little plot development there is, is so thinly veiled that you will see it coming long before you remember anything I said in this review.

I generally like post-apocalyptic stories, but this one was so flat I almost didn't finish it. I kept expecting something to happen, some form of conflict, a grumpy old man annoyed he lost his pension, a rabid chicken, anything, but no. With pretty m ...more

He he he...nice and twisty and dark, cold wit and oh so dreadfully English. Love it.

I did enjoy this. The only thing stopping me giving it 4 stars was that everything was rum this, rum that, rum, rum, rum. Yes, we get it, the place was decidedly odd, but is there no other word for it? Aside from that, a fun little read, I would love ...more

“As a part of the holy trinity, Jesus was regarded as divine, and in predominant Christian belief this divinity was not compatible with human copulation. So Mary was a virgin, with the baby Jesus implanted by divine intervention.
This was of course a marked departure from other religions in the classical
world that had not ventured such a complex statement about divine presence among mortals, and that had often been quite comfortable with the idea of sexual exploits among the gods and as sources of other gods.”
