Hi and thank you for stopping by. You’ll find lots of practical stuff on this site about writing fiction, self-editing and a writing life. Just check out the categories in the sidebar “Practical Writing Tips” to see what’s available. Under Resurrecting the Past, I’ll be posting about World War I in particular, and why I think historical fiction is such a fantastic genre. To read the first chapter of my debut novel, The Goose Road, a First World War coming-of-age quest, pop over to the blog page: you’ll find it at the top. There’s a gallery of photos connected to the story in the main Menu bar, and another devoted to my darling dog. Track it down via the side bar! Have a great day, and visit again soon to see what’s new.
