OK thriller writer's I am aware that a thriller doesn't always involve a murder, but many do so i address the above question to the large percentage of thriller writers that use murder in their…Continue
Hey Hello to everyone! This is partially to introduce myself to you'all and let you know a little about me and mine, and probably more importantly it is about belief in myself.
This all stem back to about grade 2 and friday mornings 'show and tell'. I hated it, dreaded it, loathed it, was terrified of it. All of the above. For a start I generally had nothing to show and very little to tell- end of story. Now when someone asks me about my self, I think what do I have to say that is interesting, so I stall.

Well I waited and waited. MY brother was an exceptional pianist and my sister sang country songs, they were both very talented. Me? I was just me. Nothing I did struck me (or anyone else) as particularly talented.
Here I am fifty years young and I think I may have…Continue
A little dramatic! Perhaps, but then maybe like me you will understand when you finish reading this post and hopefully watching the attached video.I first heard of Joseph Koney from my two youngest sons who haunt the world of social networking- in particular Facebook. Of course nosey mum that I am I asked in total ignorance who was Joseph Koney?
Both son's then proceeded to point me in the direction of my ipad and they uploaded a video that…Continue
