Purely my personal opinion of course but I could live without serial celebrity, so-called, autobiographies and porn posing as erotica but whether I would go so far as to remove them forever? No. Just because they're not for me doesn't mean I should deprive anyone else from reading them. Thanks for asking :)(less)

The Cornish Witches of Saveock

My new novella – The
Malan Witch – takes place in a remote coastal area not unlike Cornwall. It
