💙 What’s your Big Beach Idea?

Beaches at great for reflecting and the sound of water is naturally relaxing – if you can find a tranquil spot, a bit of shade and lay back and listen to the ocean, the mind is instantly free to wander where it will. Mine often starts to think out of the box on a beach – and I’ve had several ‘beach ideas’ that have turned into reality over the years […]

Sophia’s Tale – new book published!

A BOOK WRITTEN FROM THE SOUL IS A QUEST This story started in 2003 and has been part of the winding path of my life for fifteen years. In 2004 I had a brain injury and could no longer write fiction.

We were fourteen and Helen kicked off with an overview of Petrie’s life, […]

42 DAY SOUL WRITING CHALLENGE

  As the 42 DAY SOUL WRITING CHALLENGE was auspiciously named after Douglas Adams’ quote in Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy: “the answer to life, the universe and everything is 42”, I think it most apt that I missed the deadline and it has actually taken me 54 Days to complete the 2nd draft of my novel The Silk Pavilion.

Procrastination & Winter Boots

Boot polishing is the form of procrastination I resort to when all other forms of avoidance (ironing, hoovering, mowing the lawn, weeding, bouts of social media distraction, nail painting, and picking my split ends) have failed to result in me finding the solution to a writing problem.

When women who are centred in their power come together and join forces with the sole intention of celebrating life they give birth to something extraordinary – an energy is born that is greater than the sum of their parts, a living breathing thing in […]
