If you enjoy a bit of fiction, why not check out my latest short story, which I’ve recently published as a freebie on all major platforms? Here’s the blurb…
Plagued by doubts as to whether her novel-writing will ever succeed, Daphne is at a low point in her life. When she discovers a potion in her possession that promises the power to magically steal her away from her present plight, she feels she has nothing to lose.
Fact meets fiction in this short story based on the life and work of Daphne du Maurier – though you don’t need to be a fan to enjoy it!
Read Present Tense, Future Perfect and join Daphne as she takes a chance and stares into the face of destiny…

As you may (or may not) know, I’ve been working on another book recently – so here’s more on that…
Up a Creek Down Under is my latest book project based on my travels last October (err… if you haven’t already guessed, I went to Australia) and it’s coming along nicely.
Since I’m half Aussie and live in England right now, this is the story of my return after twenty-or-so years away and is filled with a host of mini adventures, reflections and humour…
UP A CREEK DOWN UNDER
Adventures in an Australian Homeland
As you can see above, the cover artwork is done now, and I’ll announce a publication date when I have one. I’m almost at the end of the first draft now so things are looking good.
This year, I’ve decided to ‘go minimal’ on the blog (and on promotion in general), so if you want to be the first to hear when the book’s published (and get it at the introductory discount) then the best place to be is on my New Releases mailing list – so why not click below to join? You’ll love it – it’s pester-free!
If you haven’t read any of my stuff before, I hope you’ll enjoy the free short story and are looking forward to my upcoming travel book.
All the best, and I’ll be in touch again when I have more news.

Hey, guys! Here’s the latest juice from my writing pen…
OK, guys, I know this is a campervan blog, but campervanning is all about getting out there into the big wide world and having a few adventures, right?
So I thought some of you might be interested to know about Steve & my travels in Australia back in October – even if they weren’t in a campervan!
Last summer, we decided it was about time we took a decent bit of time off. We’d uhmed and ahhed over the past few years about going to Oz to visit friends & family there, so now it was time to get our act together and book a flight.
We went for a month, all told, and if you want to see some of what we got up to, here’s a snap I took of Steve feeding the camels on my sister’s farm (I’ve left out the spider pix for now!)

Looks like it’s time for a celebration, hey?
If you’ve been on my website within the last week or two, you’ll have noticed something different…
The Tales from Corny Cove series has had a major makeover!
And about time, too! Up till now, I’ve never felt the covers truly reflected the nature of the fun easy-read stories that makes up the series. So now we’ve got Henry & Margaret – the two main characters at Corny Cove – featured on the covers, as well as images that give you a glimpse into each of the five tales.
(Note: stay tuned for an exclusive freebie further down…)
“But I haven’t read the Tales from Corny Cove. What’s it all about?”
Well, when Henry & Margaret sell up and move down to the south of England to live their ‘dream life’, they stumble upon the golden sands of Corny Cove. They’re so charmed by the place that they take on the running of a clifftop campsite nearby.
Trouble is, it turns out that ‘living the dream’ involves a few nightmares, too, and Henry regularly ends up getting into scrapes with a host of bothersome campers such as the brutish Mr Botherham and unruly Mrs Gladstone as well as ‘Rusty’ Gates, the obnoxious red-bearded farmer next door… And, of course, he does so all under the watchful eye of Margaret!
All in all, life at Corny Cove is both a blessing and a curse!
As you can see, the tales are fun-filled and all have a feel-good ending – the sort of thing that’s easy to read on holiday or before bed.
Currently, there are five tales in the Tales from Corny Cove series (see earlier image). They’re available as individual novelettes or you can get them all together at a lower price in the Tales from Corny Cove box set (above).
If you enjoy the series of tales and want to know how Henry & Margaret wound up at their beloved campsite in Corny Cove, you can also pick up the prequel story, Living the Dream (there’s a link in each book for that).

Beastly Encounters, the first tale in the series, is currently selling for 99c online, but if you’d like to try it out for free, click the button below. It’ll take you to a page on Bookfunnel where you can read the story overview and download it straight to your device.
