Stay a while to share my thoughts on writing and life.

June 2009

The month of June tends to bring optimism and inspiration. Perhaps it is the promise of summer, the clear-blue skies and the raising temperatures.

The longest day of the year is just around the corner, and the long days allow us to get much more done. So with this positive energy, it’s the best time to accomplish things before the heat of the summer tempts us into a more sluggish mood.

Lots of great news on the writing front for me – a prize in the Neil Gunn competition will take me to the Scottish Highlands later this month. Never been to Scotland before, and I very much look forward to it.

Two publishers are now considering two different books I’ve written – so keeping my fingers crossed for that – and some of my new book reviews are out. Do have a look. This month I’ve reviewed the crime-writing anthologyCriminal Tendencies for The Short Review (

and Islands of Silence by Martin Booth, The Fire Gospel by Michel Faber and Silence by Josie Henley-Einion for Bookmark on World Radio Switzerland. Hope you find them helpful.

Have a fantastic month of June,
