#StayTrueandStaunch – Fanatical About Fanatical

Whenever I decide to write a review about something I've been to see it's usually with a hint of the fanboi in me. And sometimes I feel extremely guilty about that fact, but when it comes to Fanatical - A Sci-Fi Convention Musical I have no need to. It's a musical that literally pulls at the heart … Continue reading #StayTrueandStaunch – Fanatical About Fanatical

Flying like a headless chicken through space

With days to go before I launch The Journey Home on my Facebook page, things are a bit chaotic over here in writing central. I'm busily trying to get more people involved in the launch and the ongoing crowdfunding campaign for my 2017 Book Tour. My Patreon page could do with a boost too.

There is only one Zhaan

And I won't deny a few of us may wish we were that sun. For many of my tribe, Zhaan was the … Continue reading There is only one Zhaan

2014 – this year’s summary

This year has been memorable for several reasons. Some global, some not. There have been definitive landmarks for me and I know that some of them have paved the way for 2015. I'll try to keep this concise, I'll fail. Because this year has had a lot of different intertwining moments. So in no particular … Continue reading 2014 – this year’s summary
