Amanzimtoti Ghost Stories

Hey all, I’m planning to release a Halloween-themed novella at the end of October, and though it will be a part of my Amanzimtoti series of novels, it will be a pre-series, stand-alone story, depicting Wayne and Kyle as they were before the event that changed everything. The story will start with a sleepover, where the boys…

The Rough Draft: February Round-Up

February has officially become the Month of the Hermit for me! Not a bad thing at all between the oft-unpredictable Scottish weather and the fact I had a novel to finish. It’s been a great month in spite of- or thanks to?- both of these things and I’m settling back into the family home with far…

Where does the time go…?

It feels like only yesterday I was letting you all know about my upcoming roadtrip around the Northern Territory of Australia and how I expected to be MIA until the end of June. It’s been around three months since I ended that roadtrip and I feel like I’ve only just lifted my head long enough…

On Writing: Amanzimtoti Two Months On

Just over two months ago, on March 14th 2016, I launched my debut novel Amanzimtoti: The Ridge! It feels like both the longest and shortest time of my life, and though I know I won’t be winning any records for sales, it’s still been one helluva journey so far! I published this book between packing up my…
