And because I love Courtney and Nirvana (yes, both! at the same time!): Just go straight to 6:27 on this if you want the best Nirvana bit. Fuqqing funny.
So. Waaay back in May, I had one of the nicest experiences of my writing year thus far when I got to launch Trinity Doyle‘s first novel, Pieces of Sky. It was a golden night for many reasons: Trinity, herself; Newcastle, itself; the COOLEST venue, which was full of EXCELLENT people; and lots of lovely moments, like when Trin’s young daughter […]
I have a little girl called Harper, named after you know who. But I haven’t read Go Set A Watchman. I haven’t even read the first chapter of Go Set A Watchman. I will probably read the book, but there are many books to read, and it’ll be something I do one day, when the […]

She is highly organised, uses time wisely, can juggle many balls, and I wouldn’t mind examining her brain for the component that helps […]
How was your week? I found this on my feed somewhere, I think, but when I looked back I couldn’t find it again, so basically what I’m saying is if you know you shared it with me, I’m sorry but you get no credit today. The author, Rufi Thorpe, gets heaps good credit, though (I don’t know […]
