Zoo Nation: the animals speak out!


Finally it’s here. The poetry collection which my Sheffield bestie Bev Cross and I have been promising you. Sincere apologies for the delay. That has been down to me entirely as I was in charge of the final edit and only just recently got my act together.

A huge thank you to our ART team for helping us make this collection reader ready. Your support is invaluable and immeasurable.

£1 from the sale of each book will go to our respective animal charities.

Bev’s Sheffield based chosen charity is cat-CHING. Follow them on Facebook or Instagram to see the incredible work they are doing. Also, click on his image and take a moment to meet BBIII (aka Beaumont Barrington the Third), recently rehomed and now settled in the Fulwood area of Sheffield. Bev chose this charity because she admires the selfless work of the two women running it in their spare time.

BBIII
My chosen charity is Ebony Horse Club which is based in Brixton. Follow them on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. My main reason for choosing this charity is because it features one of my favourite domestic animals in the transformation of the lives of disadvantaged young people.

At the end of each month I’ll let you know how we’re doing with sales and the amount of money going to each charity.

The e-book and paperback will be available on Amazon from 16 July. You can however pre-order right NOW. So go to…

Sun Worship

My second novel – Sharp Dark Things (desperately needing 3rd edit and hoping to be published on autharium.com) contains a description of my character sunbathing her eyelids in the early morning sun.  


And because I know you're wondering why:  


It's her moment of epiphany.  

In the spirit of living with my characters I thought it only right to emulate her actions – feel what she felt, hear what she heard... blah di blah blah.

I stood there, eyes shut, head tilted to meet the day and promptly sneezed humungously.  I recall this happening to me as a child.  It appears I'm still afflicted.

Why does this happen?  I pondered 

So I Googled it.

Because: 

a) the laptop is in the next room 
b) it can be accessed even with one hand still wrapped around a cup of tea and
c) I think a trip to the library for this sort of diversionary tactic is a little excessive

And discovered an actual syndrome called Photic Sneeze Reflex.  18 - 35% of humans suffer from it, including me.

At this point I'm try…
