Book Review – The King Trials (Chronicles of Wehlmir Book 1) by D L Sims

Genre: LGBT fantasy romance/adventure  High fantasy and futuristic romance are genres I’ve struggled with in the past.

How is it one authorContinue reading “Book Review – The King Trials (Chronicles of Wehlmir Book 1) by D L Sims”

I’m Now On Instagram!

Yes, folks, I’ve discovered another way of reaching out to you, after being reliably informed that all the wise authors use Instagram instead of Facebook, where they are too easily distracted by cat videos and heated discussions. They obviously hadn’t heard of Cats Of Instagram, or followed Bianca del Rio.  Anyhoo, I’m now on Instagram,Continue reading “I’m Now On Instagram!”

Goldfinches in the Chilterns

Here in the UK it is generally a very colourless time of year. The Autumn leaves have fallen, and all the flowers have withered and died.  In our garden, though, we were delighted to see a flock of goldfinches have taken a liking to a clump of Verbena Bonariensis seed heads, conveniently growing outside ourContinue reading “Goldfinches in the Chilterns”
