The Empress of Australia: A post-war memoir featured author Harry Leslie Smith is an amazing man who has had an amazing life!

Sub-Prime ‘A Dark Tale of Christmas’

This story has a chequered and controversial history. Originally written as ‘A Gift at Christmas’, it was for a competition run by a national newspaper group.

Lights, Camera, Action!

It’s finally sinking in that A Kettle of Fish has been published as an e-book, and I’m thrilled with the reviews it has already had. But with a printed edition also on the way, how better to celebrate than imagine how the story could be brought to life on the screen? Big, small, silver or […]

Embraced by Darlene Jones

Hi, I’m Curtis. Mrs. Jones—that’s her on the camel—put me in one of her books called EMBRACED. Sounds pretty mushy to me. Anyway, she says I have to tell you a little about the story. Miss D, my school principal came to me one day with this page of scribbles. She thought it was some […]

This newbie author’s learning curve!

Today I’m celebrating the release of Touched by The Light in ebook format. For me it is  actually MORE exciting than the day it was originally published in hardback only, at £16.99 on 23 February 2011. Ah, I can hear you groan! What WAS I thinking? No one had ever heard of me, I had […]

Knockout, Sub-Prime & now The Chosen

Much of my writing career has involved the commercial short story. My first novel KNOCKOUT! is an unashamed commercial romance. The success of my short SUB-PRIME both in terms of sales, prize winning and critical reception has always surprised me. It is a story from the neglected side of the slave labour market. Since I […]

…the End of the Long and Winding Road, or Merely the Beginning? Who would have thought?
