We’re often asked what we’re doing now, what we’re working on etc. and social media isn’t always the right fit for some updates. A now page is a great place to share those semi-regular updates. (Check out Derek Sivers’s site for more on the /now page movement.)

Editing Work

For the last year, my editing service has been fully booked, and now I need to take a break. I’ve removed all my services for the next couple of months so I can focus on my own writing projects that have been on the back-burner a little too long. My services will be available from January 2020.


With some time on my hands, I’m finishing up the outlines for the following romantic suspense stories:

  • Deniable Unit: 1, 2, and 3

I’ve started a weekly fiction writing challenge on the blog–open to all fiction writers of all skill levels. I post my response each week.


I’m currently devouring:

  • Janie Crouch’s back catalogue
  • H. R. D’Costa’s Iterative Outlining series
  • The Mither Tongue by Billy Kay
  • Modren Scots Grammar: Wirkin wi Wirds by Christine Robinson (Modren is not a spelling error, that’s how it’s spelled in Scots.)


  • Re-binging Psych
  • Disenchantment
  • The Good Place
  • The Dark Crystal
  • Carnival Row
  • Re-binging Still Game


  • Loving yoga–even though I’m not fully able to do all of the poses
  • Learning Gaelic online at Learn Gaelic
  • Embracing my Scots language
