What to do to get reviews? As a writer, not knowing what people actually think of your work, is frustrating to say the least. A simple love it, or hate it comment is perplexing! What was it they loved? What did they hate? Without honest reviews, how does an author gauge what is right or wrong with their work? Please, please, please, give me your reviews on any, or all of the books I have written. You can leave them on any of the social media platforms I am on. Your comments w
Finally, Stitch, Where to Cross, Tarsha, The Snoffs, Clever Mr Cat and The Troops are available to order and review on Goodreads.

Knitting is out of this world!
Since the third lockdown Granny's all over the UK have been knitting, creating 'hats' for post boxes to brighten everyone's day. The one in these pictures popped up recently in my local area. Did it fly in from a galaxy far, far away? Or, does its maker have the 'spark', the ability to connect with the weave of creation? and like the Granny in my novel called STITCH, possess a magic pair of needles capable of knitting the most amazing things? Whatever the case, I'm sure peopl
Cast out. Reel in! I'm officially a Pod bod!
David Edward, Author and Host of the Frequency 99 Podcast, kindly invited me to talk about 'Stitch'. I don't profess to be interviewee material but was excited to give it a go. With some erms, more erms and a smattering of erms for good measure, I hope I gave a reasonable interview without coming across as a total twonk. Let me know! Answers must be written on vellum and posted by first class Chittergoon flight delivery. Alternatively, drop me a social media message! Here's t

Preparing to ride the waves!
I'm not sure that I'm great interviewee material, but I'm going to give it my best shot. I was recently approached to be interviewed for a new podcast called Focus on Writing. The production company Frequency 99 are based in Florida and apparently want to talk to me about my book Stitch! I'm having a pre-cast chat with their host and fellow author David Edward in mid-April to discuss amongst other things, the airing date, so watch this space for an update. I'm really looking

Writing, is my passion. Each moment I get to do it is precious to me. Those moments are hard to come by for I have two jobs, and both are full time. One, being a gardener, (the job title simplifies what my actual role and duties are), is paid and puts the proverbial bread on the table. The other, writing, publishing and marketing my books, is a labour of love. There never seems to be enough hours in the day for the latter! Tempus fugit. Time flies, and I am constantly running
The road's as dangerous as can be!
So, Apollo wrote 'Where To Cross?' and devised a road safety pack for use in schools and libraries, which can be bought through his website shop. The book is also available to purchase on its own. There are a limited number of free, no purchase necessary educational packs still available for schools to trial. If you know of a school that would like to participate have them mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org For further info on the book or pack, please follow the links belo
What fuels you?
What fuels you? For me, it's the crafting of what I perceive to be the perfect line, sentence, paragraph, chapter and ultimately, story. The likes of Roald Dahl, Edward Lear,, Dr Seuss, Philip Reeve, Enid Blyton, A A Milne, Terry Brooks and darker authors like Steven King, James Herbert and Clive Barker, along with many others, have inspired me with their words, giving me the urge to write books of my own. If only to be in their league! I just hope that which I have written,
"On the double, Troops!"
This book is the first in a series of six written by Apollo Stark. It is currently the only one which has been published. Have you read it yet?

Reading is fun!
I love to read aloud. There's a great deal of pleasure to be derived from entertaining others in doing so, in engaging an audience with different character voices, and seeing the look of anticipation and pleasure on their faces as they listen to the story unfold. If there are schools and libraries going to hold a reading event in 2022 and are looking for a guest reader, I would love to hear from you. You can select what I read from the books I have written, or request I read
