Bruce Essar and I took the concept of Night Reading
from conception to execution in a few hours, and the first day has proven extremely promising – 31 members and 16 posts / first chapters.
This is an experiment and although we know what we want to achieve and how we want to achieve it, we don’t know whether the formula will allow us to get there or not. We are seeking a triumph of faith and optimism over cynicism and… Continue

Hot on the heels of 'Tilly's Tale' I'm over the moon to be able to announce that 4RV Publishing have released my young children's book, 'Alistair the Alligator'. Designed to appeal to a younger age bracket the story tells of Alistair a poor young alligator with one serious problem: he has no teeth! Try as he might, everything he tries to eat either escapes, or simply falls from his mouth as he closes his toothless jaws. Beautifully illustrated in stunning and vibrant color by Amanda… Continue

I have been reading D.H Lawrence and Thomas Hardy perhaps too intently over the past few years ( with some Tolstoy chucked in ) and am on the last 50 pages of Tess...Liking it, but am concerned about Hardy's obsession with women and their folly. I adore the poetics thrown in, and I love how he can change something simple into something extraordinary. I am going to read The Girl With the Blue Eyes next by Hardy, and see where that takes me...

The other night I was up watching a re-run of The Dave Chappelle Show
and the opening skit resonated with me so much so, that even though I was drifting off to sleep I popped right up to fully take in the message which represented what it is we African American writers have been complaining about.
The skit started with Dave explaining that even though he says some pretty outrageous things on his show, there… Continue

When I stand up for myself and my beliefs, they call me a bitch.
When I stand up for those I love, they call me a bitch.
When I speak my mind, think my own thoughts or do things my own way, they call me a
Being a bitch means I won't compromise what's in my heart. It means I live my life MY way. It means I won't allow anyone to step on me.
When I refuse to tolerate injustice and speak against it, I am defined as a bitch.

Rome in Her Ruins
translated from the Spanish of Francisco de Quevedo y Villegas by Felicia D. Hemans
Amidst these scenes, O Pilgrim, seek’st thou Rome?
Vain is thy search—the pomp of Rome is fled;
Her silent Aventine is glory’s tomb;
Her walls, her shrines, but relics of the dead.
That hill, where Caesars dwelt in other days,
Forsaken mourns, where once it towered sublime;
Each mouldering medal now far less… Continue
