A Book Review: Holden Sheppard’s THE BRINK

Here’s my review of another recent read. It is the second novel from Holden Sheppard, again set on the coast of Western Australia, and again a compelling read.

What happens when a bunch of school leavers end up on a small island on their end of year trip . . . plenty, that’s what!

This is a tension-filled, hormone-fuelled, school-leavers trip to hell and back! And a murder mystery to boot!

Like I said, it makes for compelling reading . . . and I can’t wait for his next one!

Please enjoy!

A Book Review: Shannon Molloy’s FOURTEEN

Here’s a review of a book I recently read. It really resonated with me as there were so many similarities between the author and myself at that same age … small town guys, Catholic School, tormented by classmates … you know the drill *sigh*

Anyhow, this is one that I can’t recommend highly enough. I think everyone should read it, especially kids who may be doubting themselves, the parents of these kids, and especially their teachers.

Something short, something new . . .

Here’s a little something that has just been posted.

The writing prompt was to write about someone waking up on a train, no ticket, no idea how they got there.

Of course I had to add a gay slant to it.

I hope you enjoy! 🙂

A few recent efforts for you . . .

So, I’ve just had a week at home thanks to a visit from everybody’s friend, Rona. Thankfully it wasn’t too serious and the only lingering after-effect seems to be a ticklish throat. Back to work today to a mountain of emails . . . *sigh*

With all that spare time on my hands I had to do something, right? So I did . . . write, that is!

For a Vocal Challenge I reworked one of my earlier stories, as well as finished off a piece I had been tinkering with for a while now, all about LGBTQI moments on Australian TV.

Up for the Challenge

So … I found another writing challenge that was issued by the Vocal.Media mob, which I thought fitted in nicely with one of my existing stories (The Prisoner of Carronne), so I thought, why the hell not!

And so I give you the beginnings of The Sword of Erasmus!

Please enjoy!

How remiss of me . . .

I added a couple of articles to my Vocal.Media page and didn’t spread the word. So . . . please check out what I’ve been up to of late. 🙂

There’s a book review of Bluebird by Malcolm Knox, a relaunch of The Prisoner of Carronne and a few other tid-bits.
