On My Reading Table

As we’re off in the camper van today for a couple of weeks, I’ve been looking at my

to-be-read list which is as long as my arm! Do you have a list like that? I’m a collector of books to be read; as soon as I see something that ignites my interest, it’s on the list… but I’ve decided not to add any more until I get through some of the back log. I’m concentrating on reading fantasy at the moment as I’m rewriting my first fantasy based novel, so here are the ones I hope to be reading in the next few days. We’re off to the heel of Italy, following the sun!  The Gargano Penninsula is our first stop…

  • The Rose Mark: Black Rose Sorceress by Connie Suttle
  • Eye of Truth (Agents of the Crown 1) by Lyndsay Buroker
  • Map of Shadows by J.F Penn
  • DIYMFA by Gabriella Pereira – this is a non-fiction book on writing which I’m slowly working my way through.

Let me know what you are reading, and why!

Favourite Inspirational Quotes

Quotes are like footprints in the sand… you can choose to follow the path they take or allow them to be washed away and replaced anew. Here is a favourite – please let me know yours!


When I came across this particular quote, it pulled me up short.

“I can shake off everything as I write, my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn.” – Anne Frank

The words for one so young, struck me as very mature and even sage. It made me realise the value of our liberty, of our freedom. As writers we should never take that for granted.
