Demented narrator Rachel’s a kind of dysfunctional debutante. The daughter of vast wealth, she’s got through four marriages, endless drugs, breakdowns, therapy and rehab, all in search of the one thing money can’t buy. This is the love of her childhood sweetheart Jack, who’s with someone else and not interested.   The book’s a crazy mixed bag: sometimes dialogue, sometimes prose, moving back and forth in time and between degradation and glamour. Restless Rachel might wake up in the Four Seasons penthouse, or sprawled on the floor with someone else’s wet dog. Will she ever slow down and find happiness? Very funny, fizzing with one-liners and sparkling with a febrile wit. – Wendy Holden – The Daily Mail
The writer must believe that what he is doing is the most important thing in the world. And he must hold to this illusion even when he knows it is not true. John Steinbeck
Be careful what you pretend to be because you are what you pretend to be. Kurt Vonnegut
I feel that discussing story writing in terms of plot, character, and theme is like trying to describe the expression on a face by saying where the eyes, nose, and mouth are. Flannery O'Connor

Dear Subscribers – thanks for your patience as I resurrect and/or recreate my website. I hope the sight of yet another update email, warning you that there has been some form of ‘movement’ on this long dormant landscape, doesn’t prompt you to click the ‘unsubscribe’ button. I’ll be back to normal posting as soon as I have all the content in place (back in place).

I think it ought to be said that a fiction writer can try anything. He has tried a great deal but presumably, not everything. The possibilities are endless because the stirring of the imagination never rests, and because we can never stop trying to make feeling felt. Eudora Welty
