Very proud to have been counted amongst the six finalists, in a field with a lot of entries, and sirageously chuffed to have been awarded second place for my short story: 'LIMBS'

So glad people are enjoying this read


Some serious reviewing going on. 


On Brighton Streets in the Jubilee Library!!!

Delighted that the Jubilee library in Brighton now not only stocks Will's War in Brighton, but On Brighton Streets as well.

Keep 'em coming folks! :-) 


Another lovely review for On Brighton Streets


An Award for the  Dreamtime Dragons anthology

Dreamtime Dragons has been awarded second place for favourite anthology, so is now award-winning. Woohoo!!!

Author Piet Visser (1887-1929)

I have recently discovered that my great-grandfather's second cousin, Piet Visser (1887-1929), was a prolific writer, mostly boy's adventure stuff, with 19 confirmed titles so far. Needless to say I'm really fascinated by this, and am planning a few future writing projects using this connection.

On Brighton Streets

Some lovely reviews coming in, including this one.

Brighton Fringe 2018

Some of the Invisible Voices team at Brighton's Jubilee Library

Achievement Unlocked

We pulled it off, with a large team of helpers. Official launch of ON BRIGHTON STREETS  at the Brighton Clock Tower Street Kitchen this Sunday (29/4) from 01:00 to 02:30. From Monday 30 April to Sunday 6 May, I will be at the Jubilee Library with co-author Cair to present this new book, and hopefully sell a few copies. Do drop by if you can. 

Race against the clock

Working all out to have "On Brighton Streets", commissioned by Invisible Voices of Brighton & Hove, ready for Brighton Fringe 2018!!! Fingers crossed.

OPEN MARKET

I'll be at Brighton's Open Market on Friday March 2, with my stall, and hope to meet you there.

I've had the honour of being asked by Invisible Voices to co-author a children's book for them (12-and-up), based partially on the local success of my "Will's War in Brighton". My co-author is Cair Emma Going.

Our mission is to write a book that would allow kids aged 10-upwards to encounter the realities of the housing crisis in Brighton and Hove through fiction. That entails summarising a very complex situation in edible chunks.

We have been busily brainstorming, and decided to enlist some professional advisers, i.e. some Brighton kids who have knowledge of the local Housing Crisis. We also decided to add some real life locals into the fiction. Jim Deans, Tommy Tickle, Oliver Dall, Maria Garret, Nikkie Brennan, to name a few (provided they don't object). It's gotta be a real Brightonian story, and show what is really happening on Brighton's streets.

The story is now starting to take off, with the rough drafts of the first chapters being passed to and fro between Cair and myself, after which the experts will cast a critical eye on it.

We'll try and keep folk updated on our progress on the Invisible Voices page. The working title of the book is "ON BRIGHTON STREETS"
