This is Not How I Remember It…

Wow this weekend went in completely different directions than I expected it to, but that’s ok. I think that the unexpected down time was necessary. 😊  It’s no secret that retellings and remakes have become really popular in film and literature. This coupled with a sense of nostalgia means that I’ve been watching a lot ofContinue reading “This is Not How I Remember It…”

Genre Conventions in Angel Lit

You might be sick of hearing about Angel-lit from me at the moment. Only, it’s such a broad topic that it’s taken me several weeks to say everything I wanted to say. If you’ve stuck with me this long THANK YOU! Next week I promise to not post about Fallen Angels or Demons; well I’mContinue reading “Genre Conventions in Angel Lit”

Feminists and Rebel Angels

This is going to be a slightly longer post today. I condensed it as much as I thought I could but it’s longer than my usual posts. During my undergraduate course I wrote a thesis entitled “Feminist Rebels” and Opening Pandora’s Box: The Sins of Female Angels”, and following on from my previous posts about theContinue reading “Feminists and Rebel Angels”

Samhain – Why I Celebrate Twice A Year

I hope you all enjoyed a fabulous Samhain (or depending on your hemisphere, Beltaine)! Samhain, also known as Halloween, is my favourite holiday of the year! So much so that I celebrate it TWICE a year 😊. Even before I identified as a Pagan Halloween was a big celebration at my home. “But why doContinue reading “Samhain – Why I Celebrate Twice A Year”

Fallen Angel Lit – Continued: My Problem with Fallen

Last week I started discussing my obsession with Angel lit. It’s something I could talk for days on. One of the most popular Angel-lit series would have to be Fallen by Lauren Kate but I have a love-hate relationship with it. When I first read it I loved it. It was everything I needed toContinue reading “Fallen Angel Lit – Continued: My Problem with Fallen”

Anzac Day

It’s Anzac Day here in Australia. Today we give thanks to all the Australian and New Zealand citizens who have given their lives in service of their country. As a rule I’m opposed to military conflict, in my opinion most of the wars Australia has been involved with in recent history have nothing to doContinue reading “Anzac Day”

Fallen Angel Lit – Why is it so popular?

I have three main things I like to write about when it comes to my novels: Witches, Fallen Angels and Mermaids. For a short time a couple of years ago I went back to university to study a Masters in Writing (I never finished the course due to health issues) and I chose to baseContinue reading “Fallen Angel Lit – Why is it so popular?”

Here Lies Beth

So I’m quite the Joss Whedon fan, I mean not the accusations of being sketchy towards women, but I have long adored Firefly, Buffy, Doctor Horrible’s Sing-along and Dollhouse. Through these shows I became acquainted with the work of Jane Espenson and I quite admire her as a writer. She’s hilarious! Earlier this year she posted on social mediaContinue reading “Here Lies Beth”

Art Practice and Deadlines

Today I want to talk about Art Practice and Deadlines. I really hate the term “Art Practice” but I can’t think of a better term so I’m stuck with it. All artists have some kind of art practice. Whether you are an illustrator who draws daily or a painter who keeps an Art Journal; ArtContinue reading “Art Practice and Deadlines”
