I had never seen the Pacific Ocean until I looked into her eyes. It was summer 1984 at my 10-year high school reunion and there she was, Peggy Culver. We had been friends back in school. I even dated her best friend on occasion, but I had never really looked into her eyes until that night in ’84. I...

I’ve updated my website and added an excerpt from my first novel Love By Text to my Teasers page.  I commissioned some art work to accompany this particular chapter and boy am I pleased with the results! Love By Text was published in 2009; the idea for this novel came whilst I was in a...

When I was about 7, I had a doll, originally a "Betsy-Wetsy" doll, who had eyes that would close and who drank a bottle and wet her diaper (big toy technology when I got the doll, about 1949) I had had the doll a few years, left her out in the sun and rain, so her latex skin was blistered...

Amidst a rather better day at work today (and at least no-one was bitchy to me, well hurrah, captain, and put out the ruddy bunting, eh ...), I have been trying to arrange my annual eye appointment. Since last year it's all gone more modern and now the Godalming optician circles appear to be...

I have been off the computer, off reading, off writing. I woke up the other morning and felt pin-pricks. Was sorrow reminding me to water it? Or remnant thorns from the dew that always stays back? Or perhaps the discharge was just glue that had come off when the sealed notes my vision sees are...

in which colourful dream-house remain lost your eyes what words in the forest of silence utter your eyes.   the metro's hustle and bustle, and all its dust and glitter how easy every moment is all absorbed by your eyes   what the moment holds, the fear of unknown ever exists, isn't it, ...

Had an interesting email (at least in terms of the wider literary scene) from the agent today - who says that apparently publishers are now taking much longer to respond to submissions (even agent submissions) than ever before and that even the New York agents are noticing the change. So it...
