    Nonfiction I had already written, but a novel: numerous, but none finished. And now it is! Rewriting, editing, rewriting.. it is not my favourite part of the 'job', but now it is done! And the amazing bit is.. just a few days after sending it off to an agent, I got the idea for a...

    I Have To Write

    I have to write. I go to places that I have been and many that I have not yet visited when I write.  I write for myself, but I always have the hope that someone else also will enjoy reading my work.  I always seem to have a nautical theme, because that is all I really...
