Periodically I put together and host online Writing Retreat weekends.
Typically these are run over three days and involve presentations from experts, tips, tricks, networking and other fun activities.
Where the Gulls
A small fishing village, a shunned healer, her daughter, tradition, superstition and a world set to change.
Where the Gulls Fall Silent is an historical fiction that explores the lives of the fishermen and women who made their living from the rough Atlantic Ocean; the hardship they faced; the secrets that divided them; and the community spirit that pulled them through.
A story of love, loss, hope and second chances.
