Think James Bond meets Lord of the Rings: spies, magic, and deadly politics, spiced with a […]

I’m genuinely, truly excited about this one. It’s the first time I’ve completed a series, and from being daunted by the challenge of having to wrap up all the threads in satisfying ways, I’m chuffed with how it’s turned out – huge thanks to my subconscious, which somehow came up with all the answers! It’s […]

I am no expert on this subject, but I’ve saved a few notes about it with a ‘get to this someday’ tag. It’s not something we like to think about – dying – but for the sake of our family and friends, we really should bite the bullet, so to speak. Please be assured nothing […]
