Born within the sound of the Bow bells in London, Karen Lee Field was seven when her parents decided to move to the “Lucky Country” and settle in Sydney, Australia. Apart from enjoying time with her family and pets, Karen loves escaping to fantasy worlds—places where her sometimes ordinary life is transformed into an exciting adventure and her imagination is set free. She writes novels for children and adults in various genres and her short stories appear in several anthologies. She currently lives on the south coast of NSW.

There's no point waiting for inspiration because it may never hit you, when this happens I sit and type one word at a time. Before I know it, I've written a paragraph, then two, and then I'm typing normally because I've found my flow.(less)

Seedlings of Life

The seedlings are sprouting.



Seven days ago I sowed some seeds. In case you haven’t read my previous post, I am attempting to grow herbs and vegetables from seed. They include onion, cress, dill, tomatoes, parsley, thyme, radish, chamomile, oregano and chives.





Day 8 shows new life is sprouting. The cress came out fighting on day three. The onion and radishes are also doing well. I’m pleased to sa...

Like book 1 in the series, book 2 is a winner in my eyes.

It is wonderful to pick up a book and just fall into the story. The pages seem to turn themselves and the characters and plot play out in front of your eyes, with the reader feeling as if they

Sorry to sound like a broken record but, again, if I had to "read" the books, I would have abandoned the series. For this series, in my opinion, audio is better.

If you have read the first two books, you know what to expect and don't need to read

I have read multiple fiction books in the past but I'm trying to cut down, especially since I'm meant to be reading for my talk.

Benjamin Solah I think I have a short attention span. Most of the books are of different types so depending on my mood, I'll read different books.

The Blogging Revolution is good at the moment because I was finding Pamuk too dense, and I have to read Bukharin for a Marxist reading group - so that's not really fun reading. My head wants to explode after each chapter but I'm learning heaps from it.


Benjamin Solah I'll gladly take credit *grin*

I think I've become addicted.
