Welcome to my blog and a more personal, behind the scenes look at my own writing journey and how I can help you with your writing, your dreams and your roar.

Who knows exactly where this blog will take me as that is the alchemy of writing but I anticipate featuring the following:

  • Nuts ‘n’ bolts writing advice applicable for any genre
  • Writing tips for the first draft
  • How to keep going in the face of self-doubt
  • Details of how I found my agent
  • Landing a top publisher and what that feels like
  • Dealing with rejection
  • What it’s like to have an auction over your book!
  • A behind the scenes peek at working with an editor

Who knows exactly where this blog will take me as All of which is suitable for any genre, although because I write for children all my posts are skewed in that direction. And because this isn’t just a website about writing, I’ll also ramble on about the following too:

  • Inspiration, magic, alchemy and courage
  • Staying connected to your creative self
  • Living your best life
  • Overcoming obstacles
  • No limits!
  • Finding your voice
  • Learning how to ROAR

Some posts will be very short, others will be longer, some will be pre-recorded videos I shot whilst writing THE LAST BEAR, some will replays taken from my Facebook Author page where I do fortnightly Teatime With Bear lives and maybe some will just be a cuddly picture of a polar bear when all you’re in need of is a hug. 

I can’t promise regularity but I do invite you to leave comments and share my posts if they have mean something to you.
