Fontana & Istilor

Welcome to my second book! Fontana & Istilor has been bubbling away for several months. It burst into my brain in the early part of 2023, and it would not leave until it had been fully realised. I am proud of this, it is completely different to The Awakening, and thus has its own, unique […]

The Awakening

Back in 2019 (yes, I am aware I’ve told this story before), I started a journey. It began as a piece of… well, not fan fiction, for it was an original piece of work, but it was a story for my website. I developed it during quiet periods at work, and at home. I was […]

Jumpmaster Press have given me an opportunity and they have helped me to hone […]

The Forums

That’s the idea behind the forums, which can be found here. Well, ok, maybe not unlimited – I mean, we’re bound to disagree, and I welcome robust discussions! If you are interested, sign up – but by all means browse first to see if there are topics of interest, and feel free to create topics […]

Pinning the Important Stuff

I figured it wouldn’t hurt to put all the ways and means of contacting/interacting with me in one, easy to find place – in case the social media links weren’t obvious enough. An important project is The Coalition of the Brave. New contributors are always welcome. You can catch me on Facebook. You’ll definitely catch […]

Guns vs Knives

Referring back to my earlier post ‘TikTok Gun Debates‘, I thought it might be wise to instruct Street Hawk further, given their dogged ignorance of facts and logic. He has tried to suggest that knives are an equivalent threat, similar to guns in terms of the danger they pose, and that more guns would equate […]

Moral Law

I recently got into a brief discussion with Citizen Tom about moral law. Tom then wrote a post about ignorance of the moral law, which got me wondering. Is there one true moral law, or is this a more fluid situation, dependent upon varying religious and cultural circumstances? Tom quoted Merriam-Webster regarding moral law, which […]

Writing Prompts: Roswell

Of all the UFO stories, perhaps the most famous by far is the notorious narrative about Roswell, New Mexico, in the USA. It could well have innocent explanations, but that has not stopped conspiracy theorists from clinging to the idea that an extra-terrestrial craft crashed near the ranch of W.W. “Mac” Brazel, in mid-1947. Mr […]

TikTok Gun Debates

https://vm.tiktok.com/ZGeD2ecNn/ By now anyone who follows my blog will know my view on guns. I do not believe they will make any given situation safer, and I believe the evidence bears this out. One ‘Street Hawk’ on TikTok (whose posts rather annoyingly keep coming up on my feed) has made what they no doubt consider […]

Writing Prompts: Piercings

To answer the question, no, I do not have any piercings. My wife considers piercings to be very sexy, but I am not brave enough to get one done! To be fair, at one point I’d have never considered tattoos, and now have several, but a piercing – especially of say, a nipple, or the […]

Writing Prompts: Favourite Place

What is your favorite place to go in your city? I don’t really know the answer to this one. Assuming that I cannot say ‘home’ (though home is my absolutely favourite place!), and because whilst I enjoy my job, I will never think of the showroom as a ‘favourite’ place, I need a place that […]

Writing Prompts: Gambling

Have I written about gambling before? It doesn’t appear so, so here we go! Gambling is not something I have ever been particularly interested in (unless you count the occasional lottery ticket), as I do not consider myself particularly lucky. The exception to this rule would be the bingo that we won on holiday last […]

Writing Prompts: Valentine’s Day

Are you a hopeless romantic? Is Valentine’s Day an overly commercialised holiday, taking advantage of people? Is it a day devoted to that most chaotic of emotions, love? Is it bawdy? Is it sickly? Is it somewhere in-between? In my house, Valentine’s Day is not wildly celebrated, save for the offerings of cards, chocolates, maybe […]

Writing Prompts: Golfu

Today, this meerkat is in Malta, and is being chased by a Golfu! Malta has many mysterious, legendary creatures in its history, and they all might have made for an intriguing post, but I decided to go with the Golfu. The Golfu is an owl, but an owl with a difference. It is said that […]
