Dragonscale Paintings – 20170307

7 March, 2017
I’ve been trying out new things this year – what do you think of this?

I was inspired by Elisa Choi Ang’s workshops over at SkillShare
I find painting like this very therapeutic – it helps me relax mentally and stimulates my creative flow. I can only produce abstract paintings. I have lost the ability to draw properly – an effect of cancer/chemo perhaps?
Why don’t you try Elisa’s workshops? She makes painting accessible to everyone!

snowmelt refrozen
transparent scales of ice; the
lacework of winter

This haiku is one of many included in my fantasy novel series, Isu Magan.
You can read more haiku, like this one in Book One Vintrig’s Kingdom which is available NOW!

Vintrig’s Kingdom

28 November, 2016

The countdown has ended! Today is THE day!
At last – my new novel is available!
If you’re looking for a good book to read on a cold winter’s night, this is the novel for you! The tale combines romance, mystery, enchantment, eternal winter, treachery and a struggle for power. What more could you want?
Isu Magan is the central character. She is a virgin princess beset by taboos and waiting for her coronation day, when she will, at last, gain control of Vintrig’s Kingdom. But many things distract her, not least the itinerant musician, Sama Conn (remember him from Dragonscale Leggings?) and a Journal that appears to contradict her Counsellor’s view of history…
This is an unusual fantasy novel. The plot does not revolve around a physical quest to gain or lose an object of power. Instead, this story is about the journey of a soul to distinguish truth from lie and to discover who she really is …
It is available NOW at Amazon UK and Amazon US.
This time I’ve created two short videos at Vintrig’s Kingdom and Freya Reads an Extract. You can also read the first 3 chapters for free at Amazon.
Currently available as an e-book, the paperback will be released in 2017.

tanka 10

3 September, 2015
in happy endings
song and dance – I take refuge
from unending pain
in worlds of vivid colour
I find escape from my life
I wrote this tanka while I was recovering from open surgery last year…

mist reduces the boundaries of vision but does not blur sight, rather, it leaches colour from my gaze
