I had some short stories, poems and photographs to share ... and so here I am

A Book Cover

In my bid to make sure that there are not just words on this blog, here's one of my paintings.

I've always thought this would make a nice book cover. The title is The First Nine Months, which I suppose could be relevant to many a story.

I will upload other paintings in the future - not that there are oodles, but there are the odd one or two favourites.

This was painted in New Zealand in 2003.

Can I steal a copy please? Didn't like to just help myself, thought it may be rude.

Hello Minx,
No problem .. I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you, it's lovely, (oh dear that sounded a bit twee, I didn't mean it like that).
I will peruse at leisure and get back to you with sensible words!
On another note, I don't have problems with the 'reality check' as I usually write in the science fantasy genre. Unfortunately, and strangely, a lot of people seem to recognise people and places so there's no getting away with it... anywhere, anytime!
And as for the 'snippets of real life' question to self, surely these are the fabric of a writer's universe. How could we create if we do not see, hear, taste, touch, smell the world around us and embroider it for the reader?
