Dianne Noble tells us about India and her new release: A Hundred Hands.

Posted by on Nov 11, 2016 in Blog, Dianne Noble, Guest blog tour, Tirgearr | 0 comments

I am delighted to welcome author and fellow ‘Belmont Belle’ Dianne Noble, to my blog today as one of the stops on her current tour promoting her book: ‘A Hundred Hands’ and to tell us of some of her experiences in India. Take it away Dianne :   India is an assault on the senses. My shirt sticks to my back as I edge round a goat, swatting at flies, coughing as the smoke from pavement cooking fires catches in my throat. After four hours of threadbare sleep I’m fighting my way round Kolkata, India, trying to find the...

‘Hope’. And another item from the cabinet of curiosities.

Posted by on Aug 22, 2016 in Anthony Gormley's Another Place, Blog, Crosby Beach, Hope the Tortoise, Pete Heywood, Tony Higginson | 0 comments

The cabinet of curiosities now has a new arrival: it was made by my late friend Pete Heywood, and given to me. Pete was the designer of a rather large tortoise called Hope, (and even larger Dragons!). But it was Hope I worked with him on and I will talk more about her later. A week or so ago I was lucky enough to be given a tour of Liverpool with my pal Tony Higginson of BeyondMediaBooks. I’d mentioned to Tony a while ago that I’d not been to his lovely home city for about twenty years and there were lots of places I’d never...

Mary O’Sullivan’s new release ‘Thicker than Water’.

Posted by on Feb 11, 2016 in Author interview, Blog, Mary O'Sullivan | 5 comments

I’m delighted to welcome author Mary O’Sullivan to my website today as part of a tour for her gripping thriller from Tirgearr Publishing, ‘Thicker than Water’. Mary has offered to give us her perspective on ‘people watching’  and why it is such an important skill for an author.       Observing People   Advice frequently given to authors is to write about what is familiar to them.  This, to my mind, imposes too many limits. The vast majority of us live normal , humdrum lives, cooking,...

My personal ‘cabinet of curiosities’ and how it helps my writing : “Opening Time”.

Posted by on Jun 30, 2015 in Blog, my writing | 8 comments

I often find that I get ideas and inspiration for writing from visual stimuli whether that be just people watching on the terrace of a café, gazing at a painting in an art gallery or an object in a museum. When I was engaged, the lady who had introduced me and my late husband, bought us one of those Lilliput lane ornaments. Having three young children at the time and quite a few little treasures of huge sentimental but little monetary value we decided a trip to IKEA was in order for a toughened safety glass display cabinet. A fraught hour or...

Interview with Leigh Archer, author of ‘Alpha Match’

      Leigh Archer writes romance novels set in her native South Africa. She has always had a love affair with Africa’s wild open spaces, the intensity of its people and sunsets. Her love of storytelling began as a child when she spent every spare moment playing barefoot in golden grass, watching wild creatures, learning to track spoor and dreaming up heroes and heroines dynamic enough to stand out in all the beauty and drama of the African landscape. Always in search of adventure, Leigh’s journey as a writer has taken her from journalism...
