Notes: Found poetry using snippets of text from “Letter I” of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Page numbers refer to my paperback copy of the book, a Penguin Classics edition from 2003.

These snippets are from the second page of Letter 1. Word in brackets my own addition | Title my own | 1 from line 6 | 2 from lines 7 & 8 | 3 from line 20 |

Season’s Greetings and All the Best for 2021

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support and words of encouragement this year.  It has, we all know perfectly well, been a strange one…

But whether you’ve joined in with the Weekend Writing Prompt, talked NaNo goals with me or wished me well with my writing (yes, my historical romance novel is complete! Woohoo!), it’s been appreciated. I’ve been quieter than I would have liked these past few months, and keeping up with blogging has been a struggle, but I endeavour to do better in 2021 🙂

I’ve enjoyed connecting with new blogging friends and enriching friendships with old ones. I find so much inspiration in your blogs, writing, art, photography and creativity, and know you will continue to inspire me into 2021 and beyond.

Wishing you the brightest and most blessed Christmas and all the best for 2021! Be kind, especially to yourselves.

Stay safe and take care,

Night Sky Full of Dreams – Publication News

I’m a little late in sharing this, but…Back in November I was honoured when the wonderful people at Fae Corps Inc included my short poem, Night Sky Full Of Dreams, in their anthology, Fae Dreams, along with so many other talented poets and writers. My thanks to Fae Corps Inc for their hard work on the anthology, and for the opportunity to have my poem appear in it.

The graphics they produced as part of the anthology marketing are stunning:

And the cover is so beautiful:

Here’s the list of talented creatives:
