The Holiday Blues As I write this I am back in England, and ready to start work again tomorrow. It is a strange realisation. Almost as if I was never actually in France, but with the distinct memory of being there. It may be strange to start a travel blog from the end, but I … Continue reading A Writers Escape to the French Riviera – Part 2
The Beginning of the Escape Since falling in love with Colin Firth's storyline in Love Actually, where he escapes to the French countryside to write, I have always wanted to do something similar. I can't remember now if I actually watched that film immediately after it was released, but for as long as I can … Continue reading A Writers Escape To The French Riviera – Part 1
As I write this, it is 14:50 on the 23rd August 2018. What that means is that in under 2 days, my first poetry and prose collection will be available to buy on Amazon!

So it certainly seemed, anyway. News headlines and bulletins were furiously warning people not to travel, not to leave the house, not … Continue reading A Whisper In | Snowy England
London's essence, it's chaotic streets and it's size had terrified and intimidated me for many years. As a child born in the mid-90s, growing up during a time in England where anger, riots, gangs and even terror was increasing and the news seemed to be constantly of new horrific incidents, my sensitive mind latched onto … Continue reading A Whisper In | Shoreditch
