Romance Every Day


Romance has been on my mind a lot recently.  Not just thanks to Valentine’s Day but also due to several friends of mine wanting to rekindle the romance in their relationships.  Spring is coming and the renewed energies remind us about the energy we had in our relationships. In the discussions about how to rekindle … Continue reading

A little bit of Romance


It’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow.  The day of Romance (with a capital R) and flowers.  The day when people buy chocolates by the cartload and wine by the bucket.  I’ve spoken before about romance and I was thinking about my plans with my husband. This last year has seen quite a few upheavals (I just remind … Continue reading

A brief interlude


It’s one of my writing goals to try to update this here blog at least twice a week.  I prefer to post at least every other day but this week I don’t think that is going to happen. Yes, I know, I should write no matter what but just this week I have a bigger … Continue reading

I do believe in fairies!


Fairies and Magic.  However, my take on these things isn’t necessarily the traditional image.  In my writing, magic is nearly always present along with a healthy sense of romance.  So, why am I obsessed with magic. Magic is that sense of awe and surprise that we have as children.  It’s the sparkle of Christmas morning … Continue reading

Expect the unexpected?


It’s been an interesting week Chez Moi and I thought I would just do a little recap for my own benefit really.  Several ‘firsts’ have happened both in writing and in ‘real’ life. Firstly, I submitted my work to a competition.  It’s not national or anything but there is a small possibility of publishing (if … Continue reading

Reading leads to writing


I love to read.  I know that’s probably not surprising.  I am a writer after all, where would I learn my craft if I don’t read.  I have always loved to read. I learned to read at a very young age.  My parents borrowed reading books from my older sisters’ school for me to read. … Continue reading

The Xander Factor


I have a confession.  One of my favourite programmes during my teenage years is Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  I was glued to it almost from the first day it aired in the U.K.  When I saw that it was being repeated from the beginning on TV a couple of months ago I was thrilled.  Sure … Continue reading

A little love


Romance is an interesting thing.  It’s different for everyone.  Sure, hearts and flowers is the most known about form of romance but the romance that gets to you is the personal stuff.  It’s the person who writes a little note for you to find at an unexpected because they know it will cheer you up.  It’s … Continue reading
