Turning the Full Circle

Battle of The Somme Commemoration

Battle of The Somme commemoration. I will preface this by saying that my mother is German and my father British (grew up in Australia) and that both parents lost their fathers in WWII. They met in the sixties in London at a central tube station. The legacies of WWI WWII and ALL wars before have […]

Riding the Wave – how you can help

My only recourse these days, during tough times, is to create and create and dream and water those blooms in the hope that they will flourish. My novel manuscript is currently being edited. The Siren of Paris has been a long labour of love for me and it will get published. Stay tuned. My Shower […]
