Recent publication in NOT SHUT UP magazine.
KOESTLER judge of writing last 2 years.
My 2 main themes now the blog is taking shape are Female Bodybuilding and topical/popular fiction, featured in MAY and JUNE. With an individual spin on them, of course.

APRIL was devoted to my interest in ceramics. Elsewhere may be spattered with other bits of writing, poetry, music, etc.
If I had to use one word to describe the list of unpublished books on the right hand side of the screen, which range from teenage to adult, spanning the last 14 years, I would use PSYCHOLOGICAL.
I am currently working on my third collection of extremely varied flash fiction/short stories.
My most mainstream book is a THRILLER and you can find details below.
After exploring every genre of interest to me, I am ready to move on from my misery memoirs and liberate myself in COMEDY.

Between HELLERMAN’S explanations, and KARA’S help, he discovers that there is no life outside
