Giggles and Chuckles

This one really appealed to my warped sense of humour! This one really spoke to me. Maybe because I've spent so much of the last few years learning Cowboy.... especially "Don't squat with your spurs on"... sounds like something Grace would say...

The Covid Blues

I ain't had a break in over a year, no end in sight, no holiday near. Home to work, work to home, my world has shrunk to this tedious drone. Quarantine eating has added the pounds, clothes stretched tight across my rounds. Sure a face mask means no makeup, but glasses promise a surefire fog-up.... Continue Reading →

Book Review – Viral Blues – C.S. Boyack

After reading - and thouroughly enjoying - C.S. Boyack's romp, "The Hat", I knew I had to follow up as soon as possible with "Viral Blues". Going into "Viral Blues", I expected another funny, entertaining (and deadly) adventure featuring Lizzie St Laurent and her talking hat. What I didn't expect was an esemble piece featuring...

Is there a write time?

So, I've had a busy week publicizing the first installment of The Armageddon Showdown series - Guns of Perdition (my debut novel), and I'd love to say thanks to everyone who has supported my release!

Or maybe, they're made up words adored by the masses that just steam your buns... Following are a few of my least favourite miscreant words:... Continue Reading →

Homo Cerebrum #Writeprompt

This story is in response to the May #Writeprompt over at Myths Of The Mirror... I wasn't going to partake this month (as my muse has deserted me), however, I got a little shot of confidence from a dear beta reader recently, and found a bit of muse lurking in the deepest recesses of my...

Some INFJ Madness

Long time readers will know I'm a big fan of the Myers Briggs Types Indicators and that I myself am a rare, delicate little stinging-nettle, otherwise known as 'the INFJ'. I haven't shared any INFJ funnies in a while, but came across a few while browsing Pinterest that I thought were too good not to... Continue Reading →

Ablaut Reduplication

I find this absolutely fascinating and delightful. Read the below article, and then I dare you to write or say something out of order... "Oh no, it's a black, hairy, big spider!" So wrong.
