Short Story - Rest and Relaxation


I've got a short story called Rest And Relaxation in The People's Friend Special No. 179 which is in the shops today (Weds 21 August 2019).

It's a really funny story, one of those that made me laugh as I was writing it. I hope it puts a smile on your lips too if you read it.

Longlisted in Sunderland Short Story Award


I'm very happy to be blogging about this.

I've had two short stories longlisted in the Sunderland Short Story Award

It's run by Bandit Fiction in conjunction with the University of Sunderland and Waterstones.

I'm not allowed to say which of the two longlisted stories are mine. 

More news as - and if - it comes in September regarding the shortlist. 

Fingers crossed.

Corrie weekly update - who's the daddy?

I've been writing Coronation Street weekly updates since 1995 and this week's Coronation Street has just gone live here. 


This week in Corrie, Emma finds out her dad isn't her dad.

And if you'd like to support the Corrie weekly updates (please), you can donate here.

Joy of new notepads


Who doesn't love a new notepad? As a writer I've got many notepads on the go, all for different things. I've got my research notepad for my current novel, my work in progress. Then I've got my meetings notepad which I take to, er, meetings. I've got my handbag notepad, a small affair that fits into the palm of my hand and the side pocket of my handbag.  

But one notepad among them all is special. It's the notepad I use to take notes in as I write the Coronation Street weekly updates each week. Every time I sit down to watch Coronation Street I scribble notes as a reminder to what's happened that week so when I write the weekly update on a Saturday I can remember what's happened. 

The Corrie weekly updates notepad is special because it has to be a certain type. It must be flexible, with a soft leather cover. Unlined, always unlined. And if it's got a place-marker, all the better. 

I've been finding some wonderful ones that fit my criteria in the local shopping centre, at the Tiger store. Leather cover, unlined, place-marker and oh my word, pink edges to the sheets of pure white paper. I'm in notepad heaven.
