Mind Games: Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge

It’s been a while since I took part in Colleen and Ronovan’s Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge. I tried to follow the theme, I had every intention of writing a mystery. But sometimes you have to go where the story takes you, and I got a kick out of the voice in my head soContinue reading “Mind Games: Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge”

Resting My Eyes – Weekend Coffee Share: 23 April 2016

If we were having coffee, I would apologise for my absence last week. It was my birthday, and I was away for the weekend. It was my eldest daughter’s birthday too – the day before mine. She was born at 7.40pm on the 15th of April – the absolute best early birthday present. It’s hardContinue reading “Resting My Eyes – Weekend Coffee Share: 23 April 2016”

Get Your Free Copy of Legends of Windemere: Beginning of a Hero by Charles Yallowitz – Find Out More

Thank you to Melissa for helping to spread the word that Legends of Windemere: Beginning of a Hero is now free.  Being that this is the first book of my fantasy series, I’ve been asked to discuss how I come up with all of the monsters.  I started thinking about explaining my process when IContinue reading “Get Your Free Copy of Legends of Windemere: Beginning of a Hero by Charles Yallowitz – Find Out More”

Completing the Cycle – Thursday Photo Prompt: Roses #writephoto

Completing the Cycle – Written for Sue’s Photo Prompt. Rebecca stepped onto the front porch and froze when she saw the obstacle in her path.

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 21 – Fresh

I have to admit, when I saw the theme for Hugh’s photo challenge this week, I heard my nan’s voice in my head! She used to chastise my grandfather for being ‘fresh’ with her. Of course he did it on purpose, and teased her mercilessly. Then I thought about how I could reflect the theme and, I haveContinue reading “Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 21 – Fresh”

Blood Bath – Weekend Coffee Share 9/4/16

If we were having coffee I would tell you that, between interpreting jobs, I had a fun and creative week with my daughters. My eldest has a photography project due, so we set up a few spooky photo sessions (one of the artists she chose, Sarah Thompson, creates haunting images). The original shots are manipulated to create mood and atmosphere,Continue reading “Blood Bath – Weekend Coffee Share 9/4/16”

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 20 – Solitude

I haven’t taken part in Hugh’s photo challenge for a while, but I felt compelled to this week. Perhaps it’s because my week has been consumed with photography – my eldest daughter has three projects to complete for her photography class and she likes to involve the whole family! The theme also spoke to me. I’mContinue reading “Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 20 – Solitude”

Meet the Barkers – Weekend Coffee Share

  If we were having coffee, we would be surrounded by the whole Barker clan! We often get together, but this weekend is a little different, because my brother is here for a visit. We all miss him.
