By kind permission of the eternally wonderful Adele at Fox Spirit Publishing, here’s an extract from my novella, Blood Bound. It’s a dirty story of a dirty man, and his clinging wife doesn’t understand. His son is working for the Daily Mail, it’s a steady job – but he wants to be a paperback writer. The […]
One Doctor Who ficlet for you. A Martha-viewpoint set immediately following the events of the episode ‘The Family of Blood’. Contains, ergo, spoilers.
Thought I’d blow some of the dust off the blog. I’ve been busy, lately. What with learning the ropes of a new job and generally keeping myself occupied with real life, I’ve made a discovery. Life, when there are no immediate problems to vent about, is the most boring thing in the world to blog […]
