Travel Report Dec 2016

 

Readers, I owe you an apology – it’s now two and a half weeks since I got home from the US, and I’ve been too tired and jet-lagged to post about my trip or to thank the various people who were so lovely and helpful along the way.  The image above is of me reading from Den of Wolves at the Jolie Tea Company in Salem – it was taken […]

Author Interview: Mark Noce and Between Two Fires

If I asked you what are the most popular settings for historical fiction these days, you might nominate the Tudor period, Regency England, or perhaps London in Victorian times. Then there’s Roman Britain, Viking era Scandinavia, Napoleonic Europe. But you don’t often find a novel set in early medieval Wales, which is odd, since that period and culture are rich in storytelling potential. Welsh mythology, captured in that treasure trove […]

Juliet in New Zealand

A reminder to my New Zealand readers that I will be in Wellington for Au Contraire on the first weekend of June which is quite soon now! If you’re attending the convention and would like to chat, have a book signed or whatever, do please come over and say hello. I will probably be the shortest, oldest and most white-haired person at the con, so fairly recognisable.  I don’t know […]

Meet the Crew Part 3: Fergal and Reggie

Since my first Meet the Pack post I have lost two beloved members of the crew. Darling old Amy succumbed to liver cancer and severe arthritis, and more shockingly, my beautiful Harry (below) was mauled to death by a rottweiler while being walked on the lead only metres from home. That traumatic event is one reason I have not been blogging here much recently. Harry was such a special boy […]

Author Interview: Meg Caddy and Waer

It’s a real delight to introduce Meg Caddy, an up-and-coming Australian writer whom I mentored back when she was a high school student. Meg was already a passionate and dedicated writer then, with a remarkable work ethic for someone of her age. It wasn’t only her talent that impressed me, but her willingness to listen to critique and to re-draft over and over in an effort to improve her work. […]

Q&A: Alison Goodman and Lady Helen and The Dark Days Club

I recently had the pleasure of reading Alison Goodman’s new novel, Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club, a heady and highly original blend of Regency romance and dark fantasy. I think this novel, and the sequels to come, is going to appeal to a very wide readership, as it combines meticulous research with great pacing and strong characterisation. And of course, there’s the uncanny element, which sometimes verges on […]

Meet the Crew Part 2: Harry and Zen

In this post I’ll introduce you to two very special members of my canine family. As I mentioned in my first doggy post, for several years I was a foster carer for a rescue group.

I’ve ended up with my own small pack of rescues, several of whom stayed with me because they were too old, sick or behaviourally challenged to be re-homed. Sometimes, of course, it’s just love at first […]
