When Writing Gets You Down, REWRITE YOUR ATTITUDE

Today I’m talking about my recent struggle with self-doubt and what you should do when Writing gets you down. It’s been a while since we spoke, hasn’t it? Here we are sprinting toward the end of September and a quick check tells me that my…

My Debut Novel, ‘Safe Hands’ – The Story So Far

X is for X-Ray Music (song with lyrics)

This song was inspired by a BBC documentary I watched a few years ago called ‘How The Beatles Rocked The Kremlin‘. It told the story of how, despite being banned from the former Soviet Union, the Fab Four’s music still managed to find it’s way…
