There are few things more fun than writing

Whether it's full length novels and biographies or short stories and talks, the thrill of forging words into stories, of bringing characters to life, of creating something out of nothing, is electric - even if it is also often frustrating and complex.

And this site is where I put it all. Here you'll find my various pieces of writing, including novels, Bible books and the like, together with blog articles on microholding (aka small smallholding) which is one of my passions.

I update things as often as I can, but I'm usually busy writing, publishing, running my microholding, hanging out with the family or teaching musical instruments, so I can't promise everything will always be up to the minute.

Let me know if you have any questions. Feel free to comment on any posts, and I hope you enjoy your visit.

All the best

My NaNoWriMo 2015

M2-NaNoWriMoLast November, I took part in the worldwide authoring phenomenon that is NaNoWriMo – the (inter)National Novel Writing Month. In just 30 days, I battered away at my laptop keyboard to produce the first, 61,707 word draft of Montgomery’s Battle with Atlantis.

Yes, that’s right, the book that isn’t quite finished yet … Shh!

Although the pressure of pushing out a constant stream of two thousand words each day was fairly intense, it was a great experience being part of something global; it felt like we thousands of authors were all writing together, with a common goal to ‘WIN’ … Read More

Montgomery Book 2 – Update

A few people have asked when the second Montgomery book is going to be out, so I thought I’d post a quick update.

Firstly, I’m sorry it’s taking a little longer than planned. I did the first draft back in November last year, but there were a number of plot holes and character inconsistencies that needed tidying… which are taking an age!

I’m currently working through the final draft, trying to hammer the last few threads into line – 7 chapters in out of about 30. If I was to say it’ll be out by Christmas, I’d expect that to … Read More
