In October 2015 I published a novel, Alone: A Winter in the Woods (Hidden Brook Press) and you can read about it and how it came to be written on the Books page. On the following page you will find current reviews.

Blue Denim Press, after the success of Hill Spirits (2012), has released a second anthology Hill Spirits II,  edited by Gwynn Scheltema, Erika Rummel, Susan Statham and me. The theme for this collection is time: “Past Present and Future: through short stories, poetry and illustration, Hill Spirits II reminds us of our mortality, immortality and every moment in between.” The anthology showcases some of the remarkable writers who live in this area and are members of the Spirit of the Hills Writers’ Group, a  part of Northumberland Arts Association Inc.. News about launches and readings for both books will be posted on the News and Events page.

Here too you can find out a little about Word on the Hills, a continuing series on Northumberland 89.7 FM, Truly Local Radio. This half hour show introduces listeners to authors, editors and publishers who are based in this region, who then read from their works. Gwynn Scheltema and I , co-hosts of the programme recently celebrated our second anniversary and have a list of interesting interviewees lined up for the months to come. The show currently airs on Sundays at 1:00 pm, is repeated on Thursdays at 1:00 am and can be accessed at any time and from anywhere on our website http://wordonthehills.com/
