Idleness

"I must be idle."

Welcome to my blog!

 

When the website moved (July 2019) posts and comments of the previous 10 years could not be imported. However, a small selection of posts from that decade have been copied over.

If you like my stuff, read, comment, subscribe to the blog. You'll find blog posts on a variety of subjects, but since I'm an author it's perhaps not too surprising that there's a fair number of posts about writing, books, and authors. No book reviews, though: they're on my Patreon, along with other bookish posts and more behind-the-scenes posts about my books and characters, as well as large amounts of fiction every month.
