So I’ve been offline for a while, reading and writing, turning 40 with a whopping great party, being a good neighbour, making friends. I just bought a house in Peckham that’ll see me in dungarees for a year or two 🙂 Here’s hoping it’s true that sanding floors, painting walls and hitting things with hammers is as good for writers as walking and gives me time to think through plot, character arcs etc. So here’s the wee comeback ‘newsflash’…  I’ll make a few changes to the site, start a new blog where I can write about what I’m working on, new ideas, screenwriting, novels, consulting with Cornerstones, editing, mentoring. I’m thrilled to have taken on an epic seven fantasy series by a talented, amazingly diligent writer whose story is so good I swear I’ll have its title tattooed on my left arm.  And in the meantime, on the right arm, and because words tattoo so beautifully, is a Spanish word QUERENCIA. It comes from bullfighting and means ‘the place one feels at home; from where one draws one’s strength.’ Here’s to 2017 then! To the stories that pass and the stories that last. All stories matter. Yours, mine. All of them.
