Back on topic this week, I was asked for some advice by a writer who is just starting work on her first book. Even though she appears to be of sound mind, she was dead chuffed with what I wrote and asked if I’d share it on my blog so she could send people to the post. As […]

Talking about books this week! Well, this is an author blog I have to interrupt the cat and dementia stories sometimes. Christmas Lites VII is out! Woot! Yes! I have a new release out.

Something unusual and rather wonderful has happened this week, my book, Escape From B-Movie Hell has been accepted for a bookbub promotion. Now, I can imagine you might be thinking, ‘Mmm yes […]

It’s confession time. I’ve been in a bit of a slump recently because we’ve reached a new stage in Dad’s illness and I’m still adjusting to the grimness. If someone you love has dementia then there will be stuff they say when you know it’s the illness speaking, rather than them. Over the last three of four months, […]

The evidence suggests that only one in eight of the people on M T’s mailing list has actually read her books. She tries to work out why.
