My day job is working in a High School. So I am in contact with a lot of people who don't have the best of hygiene. But so far we really haven't been impacted much. (I live in New Zealand) My heart goes out to those who have lost family members and are losing jobs and...

Some days when I publish I wonder if I am just publishing into the void. I felt this a little bit more when I went into a book store. Let me give you a little background. I curate a site on New Zealand Authors. Once a month I look online for newly released books by Kiw...

I must admit I was only vaguely familiar with WorldCon before now. It was that thing I would never go to so why bother finding out about it because it will never come to a place near me. Well, now it is in a place near me and I am preparing to go the 78th World Convent...

So I splurged and got the new Disney+ which means I get to have my fill of classic animated movies. It always makes me sad at how many of the greats didn't have critical success. Disney did get into trouble as some of the older movies are very problematic. And yet one...

I think my eyes are going fuzzy from looking at book covers. I want to make sure I have the right message or promise with my book covers for the series that I am rebranding. That brings me to the name of my book. I started off with having half of a saying. This was fin...

I don't know where people stand on republishing old series but I've decided to do this with my very first series. It was back in the day when I didn't know what deep POV was and so I have head hopping though not nearly as bad as I thought I was. I've learnt so much fro...
