You can find those already posted via the archive; just search by chapter number. If you missed the start, you’ll find it... read more »
Lobes of the brain, color-coded. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
I suspect it happens to us all from time to time: we have a day when the brain just refuses to do what is required of it. Today has been such a day for me. Why? That’s easy. I’m suffering some sort of stomach bug that has meant I’ve needed to be close to the bathroom all day. I managed a swift walk around the block for fresh air and exercise but that’s all. Now, I’ve had this sort of event before (as a recovering ME sufferer, my immune system is... read more »

I’ve a new book out for the coming holiday. It’s a story of around 10,000 words in the Gothic horror tradition, so should get those goosebumps rising.

The aim of education should be to teach us how to think, rather than what to think. (Author, James Beattie) Continue reading read more »
First performed in 1958, this is a play of its time. I’m not sure the modern generation would understand the subtleties of the upper middle class family and its seething social and class tensions. The addition of the German tutor as a fulcrum for change, so short a time after the war, would nowadays not have the power and relevance it must have had for an audience of the day. Of course, those of my own generation, and earlier, would appreciate these factors, but whether the play could be enjoyed by a you... read more »

This might seem an odd question from a writer. I was prompted to ask by a fit of annoyance over poor language used by a journalist on television. She was reporting on a local news item and used the expression, ‘This problem is, of course, very unique to…’ and went on to ask her interviewee just ‘how unique’ he felt the issue was.
