Soundtrack: Bona Fide Fake

Soundtrack: Bona Fide Fake

Every story comes with it's own soundtrack (at least, it does when I write it) and Bona Fide Fake was no different. This month, I invite you to listen to the music that inspired the various parts of Toni and Ned's story. I had such a great time developing this list, and loved how the […]

My Favourite Books of 2021

Every January, I like to take a moment to revisit the books I read for the first time in the previous year (they may have been published in a different year) and pick my favourites. I've had the pleasure of reading some wonderful books over the past 12 months, so picking a handful has been […]

Anywhere, But Somewhere

Anywhere, But Somewhere

Location. Location. Location. A sense of place is as important in fiction as it is in real estate. Why? Because story events never unfold in a void. They always happen in a place. A darkened room.

Space to Write

Space to Write

I’ve always thought it would be cool to write in a coffee shop. With a big, spiral notebook and pen, or my trusty laptop. The motivating scent of caffeine would waft around me as I spent hours engrossed in the lives of my characters, ignoring the hustle and bustle of the staff and my fellow […]

Your only requirements include something to write with and something to write on. You can get started in seconds with any old pen or pencil that happens to be lying about. Your paper […]

As readers we all love to get our hands on as many books as possible. In the olden days (of not so long ago) that meant buying pretty much every book you wanted to read. These days, readers have something we as consumers all love: options. We can buy: This is me. My pleasure reading […]

What’s in a Name?

I have all sorts of weird and wonderful stories when it comes to how my characters got their names. Jeremy (Everything We Need and All the Broken Pieces) walked into my head fully formed and introduced himself. In the early days of writing The Experiment, Logan yelled at Patrick to get his attention, giving me […]

Soundtrack: The Harder We Fall

Soundtrack: The Harder We Fall

Music is a huge part of my life. So, when I first picked up a pen and started to write, it was no surprise that the urge to create a soundtrack for each book followed close behind. I listen to my soundtracks constantly during the writing process. While driving, cleaning the house, cooking dinner, doing […]
