Why authors don’t look like their author photos

One thing that surprised me as I got to meet more and more authors was, they often don’t look like their author photos. Now there are exceptions to this of course, but I’m not one of them! You see I get bored of my hairstyle quite quickly. I’ll keep it for maybe a year maximum before I’m ready for a …

Easter Egg Hunts

  I’m always curious as to what traditions people have, especially at certain times of the year like Easter and Christmas.

Sing like there’s no one watching

All right I confess, I love to sing. Now I’m not saying I’m very good at it, but I do like to belt out a good tune. This was demonstrated last Sunday. It was a gorgeous, sunny autumn day and I was in my car, alone, driving to see a friend when Uptown Funk (Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars) came …
