- So many writers come to class with one question dominant in their mind, 'How do I make a living from this?' It's a fair enough question and one I always try to answer well - but it saddens me that it so often overshadows the more relevant questions of 'why am I writing' and 'what am I saying' and 'how do I keep it honest.'
[NOTE: I get many requests to read and comment on manuscripts, which I have to regretfully decline. However I do occasionally work as a consultant for The Inkwell Group If I am accepting MS's at the time and you ask for me by name, they will pass your work on to me.

Hi guys, Long Covid/ CFS is still kicking my arse, so I’ll keep it short. Playing with digital software at the moment, mostly because I’m too shattered to do anything physical and digital art can be done while laying down … Continue reading
Today I suggested to a friend that, rather than reread To Kill a Mockingbird, he’d read something where a POC saves the day. I then broadened it to books with strong, nuanced MCs with agency that are also POC, and put the word … Continue reading
I’m spending a lot of time scanning and sending artwork at the moment (storyboarding for an animated short) In the process I found these scans of an old picturebook project. Thought I might as well share them! I wrote this … Continue reading
Every book I write makes me want to go back and rework the ones that came before. It can cripple you: the knowledge that there is work out there you would happily unravel and reknit were you given the chance. … Continue reading
So I’ve been cleaning up my office (well, ok, I’ve been moving piles of paper from one dust covered space to another in an attempt to find somewhere to sit down) and I discovered some old doodles I did many … Continue reading
Maaaan, I knew I was far behind in answering my fan-mails, but I hadn’t a clue that I was quite as far behind as I was. I’ve just spent the last few hours catching up. Hopefully everyone has been replied to by … Continue reading
Just messing around with a wacom tablet for the first time. Super rough and sketchy as I get used to this weird way of drawing things. Think I might go ahead and try and clean this up into proper drawings.

Shhhhh… don’t tell my daughter, but this is a detail from her 19th birthday cake. I’m only showing a little detail because the entire cake is to be a surprise (not that she reads my blog anyway! But just in … Continue reading
So this is what it looks like outside my window at the moment! (Vurry pretty, though potentially quite damaging to tonight’s planned trip to Dublin and popcorn-guzzling enjoyment of Les Mis. Ah well…) I won’t blind your eyes with an interior … Continue reading
