Like a Child in a Sweet Shop...

Being Northerners, my hubby and I don't get down to London very often.  And when we do, it's fair to say our visits are always work related.  So whilst I was in the UK we decided to treat ourselves and head down to enjoy all the delights our capital city has to offer - well as many as we could fit in, that is, considering we were, in fact, doing all our sightseeing on foot.



Our pavement pounding began at Tower Bridge and we headed down the Embankment, snapping photos of the…

Carpets and Christmas

So here I am, guys, with only three days to go before I head back to the UK for Christmas.  A time of year that like many of you I, too, have always loved; after all, when else do we get to spend so much time with family and friends, enjoy lots of partying and pressies and probably over indulge a bit too much as well?  And with the Christmas CD constantly on the go, me and mine certainly make the most of it...  Not that I get the chance to join in with any of the sing alongs, I should point…

From scriptwriting to becoming a novelist

Thanks to Rosalie Lario, I did my very first guest blog post this week.  And one of the discussions generated as a result centred around my transition from Scriptwriter to Novelist - two very different animals in many ways, but at the same time quite complimentary. 



Of course, as writers in whichever field we choose, we all have our own voices, styles and experiences of the writing industry and its expectations.  But I thought it might be interesting to expand upon the…

Words aren't always what they seem

The first time I heard the word 'kounoupi' in Greek, I might not have known what it was, but it sure did sound cute... all cuddly and fluffy and inviting... 





So imagine my disappointment when I learned that there's nothing delighful or charming at all when it comes the these creatures; when I learned that their sole remit in life is to do nothing but cause down and out misery. 





Oh yes, much to my chagrin, a Kounoupi is, in fact, a buzzing, bloodsucking monster. …

The hills are alive...

Well everyone, it's that time of year again.  The clocks have gone back, the nights are drawing in and the weather has turned cooler... 



It's fair to say that usually I'm heading back to the UK around now.  But this year (apart from a couple of weeks over Christmas) I've decided to stay on here in Kalymnos.  Not least because I have work to do and there are too many uneccessary interruptions back home - what with the various shift patterns to fit around, constantly missing car keys…

Why me and exercise don't mix!

This morning a couple of my neighbours asked me if I wanted to go hiking with them.  Apparently it's what one of them does every year on her birthday!  Personally, I can think of more appropriate activities by way of celebrating - activities that involve a few glasses of wine, a cake and maybe a few pressies...



So obviously I said a polite no to their invitation - although even if I didn't have work to do, it's fair to say

I still wouldn't have been chomping at the…

People are strange...

I think you'll all agree that we all have our foibles, things that we do that make us the individuals we are.  Take me, for example.  It's a little known fact that I have to rock myself to sleep at night.  An activity my mother had always hoped I'd grow out of - a hope my other half is still clinging to to this day.  Of course, I'm pleased to say that my particular foible is confined to the privacy of my own bedroom and compared to many of the goings on in many another sleeping quarter, it…

When Chocolate's Not Enough

With three women sharing this year's Nobel Peace Prize for their part in fighting for women's rights, I thought I'd share my very first piece of published writing with you - and very apt it seems, too.

It's a poem I wrote for the anthology 'When Chocolate's not Enough' (2001) edited by Heather Killingray and although it now feels a little naive, not only does its message still resonate with many women today, it's the very piece of writing that gave me the confidence to finally follow…

TV or not TV? That is the question...

As you all know by now, Going Underground is my very first novel and I'm pleased as well as somewhat relieved, I can tell you) that the response to my literary creation has, thus far, been rather positive. Not, I assure you, that I'm showing off or anything - I'm just glad to know readers are laughing in all the

right places, getting infuriated in all the right places and feeling saddened in all the right places... And as if that isn't enough, I'm further pleased to report such feedback…

New blog post - Bad hair day!

When it comes to bad hair days, we've all had them.  Moreover, when it comes to the words 'follically' and 'challenged' I think I'm right in saying that images of baldness are usually what spring to mind. 



Well not in my experience...



After all, despite the fact that I do, indeed, possess a wonderfully, full head of hair, I have evidence that my own follicles have been somewhat challenging of late - albeit in an abundant kind of way. 



In fact, I'd even go as far as… Continue
