This is my take on relationships and their often-volatile natures. In this poem I guess the romantic in me, surfaces but finds itself in constant battle with reality because love is too often a rocky road for many of us. It would be wonderful if that were not the case, but it is not always…… Continue reading Distractions of the Heart (from Emotions in Eruption)
This month I am particularly excited to present an Australian author whose inspiration for her book Whale Rock is as thrilling as the book itself. A journalist, Diana has had first hand experiences of the things she writes about, and I am a little in awe but also more than a little sure that this…… Continue reading Australian Author Diana Plater, her new book, and the after-effects of trauma
This is my second book corner chill post and I have to say I can’t believe how many enjoyable books are out there. Choosing them to feature is difficult. I did however want to have a link between the books, a commonality that overrode differences in genre. I wanted good reads providing time out, and radiating…… Continue reading Book Corner Chilling in April
This post, it is my pleasure to feature an Indie Author who is not just talented and bent on working hard at her own career but is someone keen on supporting others as she follows her chosen path. The further I go into this whole writing scene the more I am convinced that doing well…… Continue reading Meet Caroline Noe
This month I have the privilege of presenting two authors, one an Australian and one from the U.K. and two completely different genres. I am fortunate to be meeting so many interesting people with interesting stories to tell. I especially have a soft spot for Aussie writers as you may well imagine but mostly like…… Continue reading Meet Aussie author Liv Arnold
Random acts of kindness are an inspiration. They mean that someone has our back. I read this in an article written a couple of years ago entitled Who is on your Team by Alison Winn Scotch and then the other day Thrive Global were asking for pieces to do with just this subject. I was…… Continue reading Random Acts of Kindness – the joy of mate-ship, and who has your back?
I have been thinking about creating a regular post around reading for quite a while. I love all kinds of books and my consumption is large enough to surprise the heck even out of me at times. In fact, where do I find the time? I don’t know. No, that’s not true. I do know.…… Continue reading Book Corner Chilling in March
Writing poetry just happened. I didn’t intend it and I don’t even know if I am good at it. There is a chance I could suck completely. Despite this I keep going. Ideas seem to spring up out of nowhere and scream at me, demanding their release. So many experiences in my life have left…… Continue reading The world in colour by The Human Hand.
I am loving being able to present different authors on my blog. The experience affords me an opportunity to learn more about what drives a writer to put themselves on the line. Quite simply it is scary place to be. You are out there vulnerable to criticism. Writers, I have decided are brave in a…… Continue reading Edgy Romance with MV Ellis
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXmaZCm7fqs If you recall my bucket list post, you will be aware that Cher is an idol of mine. I thought I would use that in this post and share Cher (don’t you love the assonance, I think that’s the right poetic device) because this segment comes from Mamma Mia Number 2. If you haven’t…… Continue reading Moonstruck, starstruck and Mamma Mia all makes sense
