The Writing Room

This is my creative space. This where I write. I keep a very tidy hard drive, but my room is a little more fluid. On this page I shall add information about projects in progress.







Work in Progress


3rd draft of The Key to Finlac has been reduced from 90,000 to 55,000 words. It still needs some work on the second half of the book.

Ist draft of a fantasy novel set in the real world is finished - 48,000 words. The protagonist is a fifteen year old girl. I finished it on 13 MARCH 2012 and have been leaving it to settle. The story needs a radical overhaul.

The ebook of
Badgerman & Bogwitch is now available to download for free from this website.

15th August 2013: Began the first draft of a YA/cross-over novel, The Reaping.

5 February 2014: I am currently 11,000 words from finishing the 60,000 word first draft of the YA/cross-over novel I started in August 2013.

1 March 2014: Finished the first draft of the YA/cross-over novel I started in August 2013, 31 days ahead of schedule. Very pleased.

3 November 2014: Finished the eighth and final draft of the YA/cross-over novel I started in August 2013, a month ahead of schedule.

February 2015: I am reworking
The Tall Story of Tiberius Small, a comic novel for 10+ , finished in 2013, as The Tall Story of Tobias Small.

March 2015: I finished The Tall Story of Tobias Small.

In June 2015, I began work on a fantasy novel for 10-12’s set in the the Ramswold Valley of Badgerman & Bogwitch.


I took 2016 away from writing, because life got in the way. As of February 2017, I am continuing with the fantasy novel for 10-12’s set in the Ramswold Valley of Badgerman & Bogwitch

I use Scrivener for all my writing projects. It allows me to outline, draft, format and keep research all in one place. It will even export your work as Kindle and epub files ready for uploading. I can''t recommend Scrivener enough.
