I'm very happy to announce that my latest novel, m/m romantic comedy The Hit List, is now published by Amber Allure, where you can also read a brief extract.  The blurb is: Jamie Chadwick is straight. Determinedlystraight. Or so he keeps telling himself. His small conference business is doing okay...

Having something of a down day today, so bear with me. I've taken two calming pills and am hoping it's the hormones. I keep getting all tearful for no real reason, sigh ... Ah well, no change there then. I blame it on the flow writing I started doing today - which is basically when you start...

The holiday was great - the weather was kind and I loved it. The only slight problem was that for some reason I was sick as a dog the first night so was up for most of it. Unfamiliar bathrooms are never pleasant when you're ill. Still, at least I got a lot of the puzzles in my Puzzler magazine done...

Here's today's poem: Meditation 232 There’s an awful lotof travelin the early church so it’s obviousthat sainthoodwould never have suited me at all. Church today was okay - quite a good sermon about relationships really - but we had one of those horrid dirge-like hymns I can't stand for the third...

Here's today's poem: Meditation 231 While one manbetrays his town to a bloody death,another is lowered from a city wallin a basket and creeps awayinto night.

Salt, Gold and Sexy ScavengersI'm pleased to say that the revised version of Salt and Gold is now available from the Lulu store at a very reasonable price, if anyone is so tempted.

What a glorious day it's been today - an Indian summer indeed. Here's today's verse: Meditation 227 Sometimes the only thingthat countsis the wild shedding of blood:from the small agoniesof ancient kings –  names long forgotten – to the murderous furyof Paul as he condemns to darknessthose he’s...

I have to say it's great not to be in the office today. Almost feels like being normal (perish the thought). Here's today's poem: Meditation 226 To start the day:a good stoning.Cover your ears and let sharp rocksblanket the wordsthat pierce you most while the rough cloaksof murdererslie heavy in...

I’m pleased to say that my review of Julian Fellowes’ almost perfect novel, Past Imperfect, is now up at Vulpes Libris. Definitely a novel worth the reading, in my opinion. Though, keeping to the topic of book matters, I’m sad and very frustrated to say that the CoolReader company are being...
