Back to the Beginning by Cari Hunter

I blame Agent Scully for all of this. In the nicest possible way, of course. (She carries a gun so you have to tread carefully.) It started about 27 years ago, one young soul tuning innocently into a new TV show called The X-Files. Fast forward a few months later, and said young soul is… Continue reading Back to the Beginning by Cari Hunter

Stuck in the Past: why I like historical fiction by Cathy Dunnell

We’re always told to live in the moment or focus on the future. But for me, being stuck in the past is the best place to be. I absolutely love historical fiction. As a child, my favourite stories were those set in the past. I had a particular fondness for the tales of Robin Hood… Continue reading Stuck in the Past: why I like historical fiction by Cathy Dunnell

SO MANY BOOKS, SO MANY BIBLIO WORDS, SO LITTLE TIME by M.A. Binfield

I know that many of you are bibliophiles, some of you are bibliosophs, and a fair few of you are definitely bibliolaters. I mean I can tell just by looking at you 😉. And from what I see on my Facebook timeline, I suspect that my friends’ list harbours quite a few who even indulge… Continue reading SO MANY BOOKS, SO MANY BIBLIO WORDS, SO LITTLE TIME by M.A. Binfield

Reading, Writing, and Fic, oh my! by Lesley Davis

When I get the chance to read, between gaming which takes up as much time as I can possibly give it, then I like to read romance. I like the whole girl meets girl, they fall in love, and I have to have a happy ending. I’m a sucker for that. I like all genres.… Continue reading Reading, Writing, and Fic, oh my! by Lesley Davis

I do love a good series and last winter I decided to take on ‘The Bone Season’ by Samantha Shannon. Its’s an incredible series set in the future… Continue reading Riveting Reads by Skye Rowan

We Made It! by Mickey Brent

“Oui, oui… It’s still raining over here.” We made it! After painful months of scheduling, packing, selling, donating, and stressing about last-minute travel complications, my partner and I and our kitty finally relocated back to Brussels last month. After ten days in strict quarantine, we ventured outside at last. So cold and rainy! What a… Continue reading We Made It! by Mickey Brent

A Daily Burst of Inspiration (In 140 Characters Or Less!) by Ileandra Young

I log onto Twitter every day and have brief chats with various writing and creative peers. I read their stories, share their joys and pat their shoulders with empathy when they express disappointments or perceived failures. The immediacy of Twitter and the quick-fire nature of the conversations we have there suits me, and my generally… Continue reading A Daily Burst of Inspiration (In 140 Characters Or Less!) by Ileandra Young

WRITING ‘SOUL SURVIVOR’ BY I BEACHAM

I’ve enjoyed writing all my books, but this one has been an absolute pleasure. Writing Soul Survivor has given me a chance to bring two women romantically together from diverse professional backgrounds; the international journalist and an English rural vicar. The former vocation is one I’ve always greatly admired. I have viewed the media in… Continue reading WRITING ‘SOUL SURVIVOR’ BY I BEACHAM
