My first book review – ALLSORTS


You are author of this book.

Review by: Jeannie Meekins on May 18, 2014 : star star star star
An entertaining collection. A dash of imagination coupled with a dash of reality.
There are some rich descriptive details that give a feel of atmosphere. I particularly liked the reverse assumptions, such as if there is a footprint in the sand, it must be Friday.

Thank you very much Jeannie. I am absolutely stoked.



My first publication; an eBook on Smashwords. Pants down to face the music.


Today was a milestone. The first of many, I hope. I feel like I am standing in the middle of a busy city mall with my pants down around my ankles. Problem is I am much older than say 5 or 6 years of age. That would at least give me a bit of an excuse. A little while ago I posted a blog in which I spoke about jumping off. Well I have gone and done it. I have jumped. The good news is that I did not die. Yeh! Whooo! Yehah!

The bad news is that I am now racked by uncertainty while I wait for the reviews, comments and critiques to come in. Hmm! Let’s face it, us writers need to hear what our readers and peers think. We have to take it on the chin and all that sort of tough guy stuff. Bogey would be proud. The Maltese Falcon was on Foxtel the other day. I love that bit where Bogey strikes Peter Lorre. When he complains Bogey tells him you’ll get slapped and you’ll like it! Ah, the good old days.

Soooo, go to Smashwords and search for ‘Allsorts, short stories’ by me truly. It’s quirky and weird and I hope entertaining. Best of all its free, but the cover is not edible. Check it out, you’ll see what I mean. By the way its fiction. Enjoy. Bogey says.
