  Gina (www.ginacolliasuzuki.com) is still intensely focused on two fiction projects in their advanced stages, an history degree course and working on her next academic work on Japanese art as well. Oh, she’s also managing to find time to maintain her ‘Angry Birds’ high score ranking of being...

  There's a peculiar thing that I didn't mention in the blog I wrote a while ago about how I met Gina. At the time, before I even knew her name, an absolute 'knowing' came over me that I have never been able to explain. It overwhelmed me but was in turn overwhelmed by the fact that I was falling in...

I’ve found it surprising to realise how ‘noisy’ and chaotic most of my life has been. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, however it’s been interesting for me to look back at my life and see that even as a child I always sought ways to find a place just to ‘be’, no distractions, no chaos; just me,...

Last week I proudly showed Gina’s books that are on display in the window of Waterstones, Weston-super-Mare, to two bewildered security officers. They were bewildered because their reason for being there was to apprehend me in a shopping centre for taking unauthorised photos within the mall area....

A particularly happy day today. Gina is an intensely focused writer, often working from the moment she wakes up until 4 or 5 in the morning. As anyone who follows my blogs knows, I am very proud of her and certainly do not begrudge her working practices.  It’s always been my opinion that any...
