about me

On the off-chance you've turned up here to have a look at 'We Are Alive', I'm afraid I've decided to take it down because I can't really commit to the site just now. I'm sure you'll live ;-)

Huge thanks to everyone who offered feedback and support. I am particularly indebted to Joe Walsh, Ellie S Lee, Cass McMain, JohnDoe and Mooderino.

I thought the pace and the dialogue were nice and snappy and the characters were well drawn. I particularly like ... view book

- Diving into Red - I started reading this on a whim and continued because I really enjoyed it. I should fess up from the off: I'm an English teacher in foreign climes (first Russia, now Germany) so I have a vested interest in the subject matter. I have in the past toyed with the idea of heading ... view book
