Born the same year as the Russians launched Sputnik, I confidently expected that by the time I reached adulthood, the human race would have a pioneer colony on the Moon and be heading off towards Mars. So I was at a loss to know what to do once I realised the Final Frontier wasn’t an option and rather lost my head - I tried a lot of jobs I didn’t like and married a totally unsuitable man.

Now I've finally come to terms with the fact that I’ll never leave Earth, I have a lovely time writing science fiction novels and teaching Creative Writing. I live in Littlehampton on the English south coast with a wonderful husband and a ridiculous number of books.

That's normally an indication that I've taken a wrong turn somewhere and the story isn't working, so I have to back up and work out where the narrative arc started heading into a black hole, unpick it and start again.

Like everyone else, there are times when I sit at the screen and nothing comes because I'm too tired/worried/real life is overwhelming - and when that happens I do myself a favour and go and hoover up some Lego or dust the bath...(less)

Yes - I know that sounds flippant, but it isn't meant to. I love the process of writing and cannot imagine Life without it. In fact I'm strongly encouraged by Himself to sit down and write after a few days because he claims (perish the thought!) that I'm a tad crabby without my writing fix.(less)

It always helps if the narrator is good – and Samara MacLaren’s voice and reading style has become a solid favourite. So it was a bonus to discover her dulcet tones when I first tucked into this enjoyable offering.

Looking at the shocking pink cover of the audiobook, I’d assumed that I was getting a reasonably light-hearted exploration of witchcraft and what it means to be a woman in the contemporary world. It’s nothing of the sort. Instead, nested within a cra ...more
