Illusioneer Update and a Bonus Short Story

Good morning Dear Reader, There’s been a lot happening over the past few weeks. First, an update on ‘The Illusioneer & Other Tales’, then a link to a bonus (so far unpublished) short story of mine. The manuscript for Viola’s last set of adventures, The Illusioneer & Other Tales, is completed and edited. The galley…

Photo Sunday: Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas dear Reader. Today is a family day for me; a day for sharing, eating special treats and spending family time together. My friends and family know me – chocolate, books (I now have the full Simon R Green series of Blue Moon books), games and geeky things.      After a lunch of special…

The Pre-Christmas frenzy

This week I’ve swapped Photo Friday for a blog post. Photo Friday will happen on Sunday. Make sense? Last weekend was the last book event for this year – a popup store for local indie authors at Greenlight Comics in Adelaide. Joining me were Alex James and Darren Koziol. Thanks to everyone who popped in…

Photo Friday: Time Travellers’ Picnic

International ‘Pretend to be a Time Travellers’ Day’ is traditionally held on 8th December each year. Last Sunday we calibrated our chronospheres, jumped in the TARDIS or appropriated a Vortex Manipulator to attend this year’s picnic. It was wonderful to see members of Steampunk South Australia, Cosplay for a Cause Adelaide and Australian Costumers’ Guild, as…

Photo Friday – Summer in Adelaide

Summer has hit with a vengeance, with sunshine, lightning storms and our first statewide fire ban day. Back in the garden, we’re still doing the pre-Christmas clean up in the front yard (and getting rid of fire hazards). We’re getting visitors: we spotted a baby blue tongue in the vege garden and a spider near…

Photo Friday: In the Garden

Last week I partook of ‘feel good’ Tryptophan and Phenylethylalanine via (way too much – is there such a thing?) dark chocolate. This week I’ve added Endorphins* to my arsenal to dispel the gloomy funk set in after weeks of anxiety. And what better way to get exercise than pottering in my garden in an…

Photo Friday: Roses for Remembrance.

It’s spring. Already the native bees are swarming, the blue tongues are ferreting in the grass, the birds are nesting and the butterflies and dragonflies are flitting about. The smell of freshly turned earth and mown grass wafts through the back door and soothes the worries of the week. A heady perfume follows on the…
