Every few weeks I’ll post an update as to What’s Happening in My World to keep you right up to date.
*****8th April 2018 – Out on My Travels In Mandurah, Perth, Western Australia*****
Apart from lots of walking in the glorious sunshine, I spent a lot of time getting to know Mandurah and the surrounding area. And this time I managed to visit the notorious Crab Fest which is a lively event full of live music, cheer, and food, lots of food of all types, and there was of course plenty of crabs to be had. Here’s a short video to give you the idea:
Mandurah is a coastal town situated south of Perth. It has a broad water inlet/estuary that leads to a massive expanse of water named Collins Pool around which activity is abundant on and off of the water. It’s also not uncommon to see many pods of dolphins, and evidently, the occasional shark wanders in close! While attending the Crab Fest, I had the inspiration for this to be a significant location in my next Jack Jago Novel. So, why not check back often to see how that works out or better still sign up to my Readers Group for updates.

30th October – What’s Happening – Thriller Writing
Hello, I haven’t posted for a while, and that’s for a good reason. I’ve been researching locations, resources and writing my new thriller, and yes I’ve been writing a lot! But let me tell you about where I’ve been studying. I’ve chosen some scenes in my current writing project to take place in Valencia, Spain, a vibrant city full of architectural wonders, fascinating people, and exciting culture. Oh, and I nearly forgot lovely beaches and in March a super fiesta in Fallas!
Here’s a short montage of this wonderful city? I hope that you enjoy it?

17th of May
– What’s happening – I’ve just finished putting together the copy for a short video book trailer that will be ready for the Enemies Rising book launch. So watch this space for the finished version soon. I‘ve been sending out excerpts of Enemies Rising Part 1. Here’s one below and if you want to see more pop on over to Twitter or the Facebook Page for the Series.
What’s Happening – I’m very excited to have been talking with an illustrator about a new children’s series that’s currently being revised. So far there are five stories in the series with more on the way. I’m hoping that there will be more news on this soon.
What’s Happening – I’m super happy to be having my website upgraded by Emily over at Webfooted Designs. The new site will enable readers to more easily access my books and sign up for news, offers, and giveaways.
What’s Happening – I just returned from a trip to Australia, and I’m busy sorting out the photographs into categories so that I can use them in my writing. I tend to use photographs in this way as they provide an excellent source of reference. On this particular journey, we had a fantastic opportunity to visit the Thrombolites (Living Stones). Evidently, this is the only place on the planet where they can be found, and I can already see where they might feature in a future story. They are situated in a 20 km long lake at a place called Lake Clifton. Lake Clifton is in the Yalgorup Lakes National Park, less than half an hour’s drive south of Mandurah along Old Coast Road. The Thrombolites sit in shallow water along a 6km-long section of Lake Clifton’s eastern shoreline. They appear like giant stone footballs in the water where they multiply and attach to one another. By the way, if you do get the chance to visit the Thrombolites, there’s a beautiful winery complete with restaurant and music nearby. You can see more photos for my trip here.
