I could not resist including that happening and built an entire chapter around it. Thus, yet again, life as the stuff of novels.
As a writer, one tends to think ahead too. I find now that I am getting on with the new book, appearing in the back of my mind is what happens after it.
I thought I would here have a chuckle and create a somewhat tongue-in-cheek version of a Wiki that is factually the real me, but under the pseudonym.
If you cannot impress readers while remaining true to yourself, you are doing writing wrong.
“Fiction” is almost never entirely “fictitious.” As my uncle once told me: “Fiction comes from fact, and lots of fact makes great fiction when you re-write it as fiction.” (I want that in my obituary. 😉 )

That “Fun With New Zealand’s Flag” post – from the (northern hemisphere) summer of 2015 – has in the last few days brought in tons of Kiwi visitors. It continues to do […]
We can forget – or we choose maybe to try to overlook – how competitive writing can be. Given the nature of the craft, that isn’t surprising: some authors will invariably achieve […]
