Something to Do

It’s day two of my long service leave, and already I’m pretty sure I want to go back to work. I planned for this, as well. Gave myself a huge to-do list, planned out each day, and made sure to get a new number so that I could totally disassociate myself from work and everything …

A Frosty Scoop

I got me the story of the century, so I have. I’m gonna blow this one wide open for the whole world to see, you see! I can see the headlines now: Pondelia Whimsy Makes Home Out of Frosted Window Glass: Does Money Literally Drive Folks Crazy? More at 11! Of course, there won’t be …

Incredible Solar Panels

Oh, how my opinions have changed for the better. Time was when I thought that solar energy was destined to fail because those panels being out in the rain would cause all the power to wash off. Then I did a bit of research and found out that they have a special reflective coating that …

Property Advocates, Easy

Have to admit, I don’t know what all the older wizards on the internet are talking about. They’re always moaning about this realm, and how they can’t understand the strange things these people do with their lives, and there’s an entire forum dedicated to revenge plots on the king for banishing them which I think …

My daughter’s new apartment is lovely, but I’m a little bit disappointed, if I’m honest. I’ve always felt that half the point of owning property is being at liberty to customise it, yet she’s opposed to anything that might interfere with the fresh-out-of-the-box quality that currently characterises the place. She won’t even put hang pictures …

Our tutor has said that flaws define people as human beings, so if any of us in the class are utterly flawless or perfect life forms, then that would simply not do …

Black Tie Hair

What does one wear to a black-tie event? More to the point, what if it’s an event at which one is receiving a prestigious award, and will very likely be photographed by the press? Okay, fine, you twisted my arm. I’ll spill the beans. I’ve been nominated for the Anton Markova Award for an Outstanding …

Suddenly, Narwhals

Things are really heating up on ‘Echolocation!’, which is saying something because all those homes are underwater. Kevin and Stacey, that Welsh couple who come from a long and proud line of marine biologists, are trying to sell their home. Thing is, they live in a two-up two-down place just underneath the Pacific Ocean in …

When Advocates Rule

Crafting one’s own universe is super tiring. It’s something I enjoy, don’t get me wrong, but it never feels complete. Every day I think of when my entire book series is published, and there’s going to be a whole forum of people tearing apart my magic system and poking holes in all the mechanics of …
