My writer's C.V. includes sales of over a hundred short stories to magazines, zines, sound-zines and literary journals around the world. In the U.K. my popular fiction has sold to 'The People's Friend', 'My Weekly', 'Woman's Weekly,' and the literary stories sold in Canada, the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and Europe, to 'The Atlantic Review', 'Solander', 'Stand', 'QWF', 'Peninsular', 'Bound Off', 'Sniplits', too many to name them all here. My series of Mediaeval Japanese short stories is now an e-book. A children's bedtime story is newly released in print and ebook form. It was held up for eighteen months over copyright problems about the photographs I wanted to use. I've solved that problem with delightful illustrations from a Canadian illustrator, Sakshi Mangal. The new novel is finally out in the ebook world, the print copy is selling slowly. PR work abounds as I get the novel and the other books under readers' noses. I'm still making book trailers but am finding the new Youtube format difficult to use. I read and review chiefly at and and on my blog.

My novels, anthologies and single short stories are available in bookshops and online and my novels and short stories are available at Amazon, Kobo and Smashwords in e-book form. Local TV made a film of the last book launch and I'm now using Youtube for book trailers, which is fun but slow work. My fourth trailer is now up here. You can find one on Tizzie and another one about Writer's Choice. Wild Colonial Girl has just got her book tube video published. I'll get better as I learn, but it took more time to overcome my fear and hatred of technology than it did to make them now I have my photos online.

Thank you Mr Sharma for another interview spot.

As a member of Writer's Choice publishing cooperative I enjoy the support of my writer colleagues in making my novels and stories quality fiction. We work together improving and editing our books. We help each other write better books. In our first year we each launched an historical novel, and the three books did very well as best seller, and prize winners. In our second year as the Writer's Choice Writers' Co-operative again we had competition and sales successes. Our third year was a repetition of the success of the previous years. We have had another winner in our fourth year with 'Four Nails' and 'Bittersweet' was long listed in its competitions. Our fifth year saw many obstructions to writing and publication and in our sixth year we published short stories, the Writer's Choice Shorts, previously published short stories and an anthology of historical Japanese short stories. Now in our seventh year we have my new novel, ‘Wild Colonial Girl’ launched and some more short stories ready to go. I believe my colleagues are writing more steadily again – life does get in the way of creative work! – and I will spend this year licking a NA/YA novel into shape before getting on with my Quaker girl’s story. With my colleagues' help I hope to continue putting out quality short stories and novels deserving of our quality fiction mark. Indies forever!
