  • Leominster Bookfair
    on May 30, 2016
    The Bookfair in Leominster's Grange Court today went pretty well, really. Sort of. The Bookfair itself, up in the John Abel room, was good - a great opportunity to meet and chat with readers browsing our stalls and with fellow writers. It is definite...
  • Solomon's Magpie
    on May 1, 2016
    Book titles and covers, I reckon, are two of the most difficult bits of the writing process. At last, though, I have mine finished in time for my spot at the Leominster Festival next month when I'll be doing a pre-launch feature at the writers' bash...
  • Tales and more tales
    on Mar 12, 2016
    A long time ago I posted the following on this blog about a story which I had come across whilst mousing around the cybers: An old radio ham was lying in his death bed upstairs. His favourite food was chocolate chip cookies and as he lay there, gaspi...
  • Squaddies getting away with a weekend's unofficial leave
    on Feb 27, 2016
    I would love to know if anyone out there has come across this story, or one like it. It goes something like this: It is wartime and lots of soldiers are always on the move and frequently seen at major railway stations. There are always some who, bein...
  • A Good Turn...
    on Feb 18, 2016
    As you drive into Cardiff along the A48M, a short distance beyond the end of motorway regulations and the change to A48, there is a church on the right. A quite ancient church, actually – St Edeyrn's. What you will almost certainly not notice as yo...
  • Venturing into Youtube
    on Jan 17, 2016
    Well, here goes - my first attempt to make and upload a video to Youtube. My intention is that this should be the first of a short series of readings from my new novel leading up to the summer when I plan to publish it.
  • Looking for a title
    on Dec 20, 2015
    As I come to the last long push towards finishing my novel, I need to be thinking about a suitable title. Well, I've been doing that all along and it has gone through lots of changes in that time. It started out as Whitaker's Basin which will remain...
  • Getting ready to start my second draft
    on Nov 18, 2015
    Some folk hang around in the background and are very easily overlooked. They are not as exciting as the people in the foreground, at the centre of all the action. But then you look a little closer and realise that the nobody in the shadows actually h...
  • Remembrance
    on Nov 7, 2015
    I'm re-posting this from last year:As come to Remembrance Sunday I am reminded of the first Remembrance service which I conducted after being ordained. I was a recent arrival in a small town in the northeast of England, the new minister of the larges...
  • Blain's Moss
    on Aug 19, 2015
    Each time we visit Delamere Forest I make a point of taking some photographs of one or two of the ancient meres and mosses which are currently coming back to life as part of the exciting restoration project which has been going on for a few years now...
