August News

Welcome to September! This month I have another acceptance to announce - 'What He Deserves' was accepted into Black Hare Presses 'Dark Moments' collection. It will be published online sometime later in the year (and mentions a bit of cartomancy - hence the playing cards image). I've still been working on a problematic story... *sigh* … Continue reading August News

I haven't been doing quite so much writing this month, mostly labouring on an old story I'd love to have published but just can't get right. However, I do have another acceptance to share! My story, 'Raven's Sacrifice', has been accepted into the … Continue reading July News

June absolutely flew by, but my biggest news of the month was the publication of my short story 'Klaria's Battle', in the 'CANCER: Speculative Fiction inspired … Continue reading June News

It's so clever, because while the title as a whole makes sense, each word in the title is also the name of a character. Beth Teller is the first character … Continue reading Book Review – Catching Teller Crow by Ambelimn Kwaymullina and Ezekiel Kwaymullina

Book Review – Just One Word, Just One Smile by Tony Caplice

  This is a bit different to my usual read. I don't usually read memoir, but I've heard Tony talk about his book a couple of times now, and he read a section of his book out at the Little Laneway Festival, in November last year, and I had to read more. The story is … Continue reading Book Review – Just One Word, Just One Smile by Tony Caplice

Welcome to my very belated post about the Tamar Valley Writers Festival!
