Another art post for a bit of fun. Here is a quick painting of Harpy, Lisana’s pet mooncalf, a demon/animal hybrid. While most of her farmyard siblings died young, Harpy was strong enough to make it through puppyhood. She is smart (even by border collie standards) and well-mannered, although she has been known to spit … More Harpy
This watercolour was done years ago, and served as the first inspiration for my in-progress steampunk fantasy novel. Ana lives a double life as a governess by day, and a city prowling vigilante by night. Stay tuned for more artwork from the Clockwork Universe.
This week I finally got access to the complete album from the very talented Lena Matienko. The new album Mosaic is a compilation of gorgeous instrumentals, which are perfect for writing to. If you’re anything like me, you can’t write to songs with lyrics, or the words somehow end up in the dialogue, so instrumentals … More Music to Write to
A little piece of teaser artwork for a project I have in the works. These ladies are members of the only all-female gang on the desert word Isparda. The Painted Cats are one of many governing gangs on Isparda, which is one of five planets in the system. Stay tuned for more teasers and tidbits … More The Painted Cats
A new year brings new challenges, new opportunities, and if all goes well, a new novel. Last year I dedicated much of my writing time to a different project, a steampunk inspired, high-fantasy novel, set across five planets in the same solar system. It’s the largest, and possibly most ambitious project I’ve undertaken, but I’m … More Sweet Mercy
This year work begins on the third and final instalment in the Ninth Circle trilogy. So to kick things off here is a quick little art post of the three main ladies; Tala, Lisana and Aiva.
I’m very excited to announce the release of the Sol.Terra Complete Collection. This beautiful paperback combines both book 1 and book 2 of the Sol.Terra series into a single edition. It also features a special BONUS EPISODE, which is not included in either of the individual books. The bonus episode, called Episode 13: The Dark … More Sol.Terra Complete Collection Out Now!
Two things happened on Sunday. The first was that I successfully completed NaNoWriMo 2016. I managed to reach 50,000 words, and with a few days to spare. I must admit, it was a very good feeling when I finally got to click that Validate button on the NaNo site. The fun’s not over yet, however. … More NaNo Update – The Lion’s Share
This month is supposed to be for writing, and trust me, I have been working on it. My word count is currently sitting at around 22,000. Not bad for day 11. But, I will admit that I have been doing more than just write. It’s been the season for crafts in my house (owing largely … More Inspiration In Many Forms
Last month was for prep and prewriting, especially over at NaNoPlotMo, but now November has officially arrived. In fact, I’d even go so far as to say it has come barreling down the hallway, tripped on its socks, fallen through the door, and landed face first on the living room rug. And with it, showing … More NaNoWriMo 2016 Update
