Winter Writing Retreat at Home
February 10th - 12th 2023
Join me and a group of outstanding authors across multiple genres for a three day winter writing retreat at home.
Winter can get you down. Long days in the cold, less time socialising and interacting with others.
Let's join together and inspire each other to creativity and purpose this February!
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.

As the days shorten and the winds cool, the leaves shift-colour and the clouds gather, a new season is upon us. A time of change, a time of preparation. For my garden a time of harvest and planning - gathering the last of the summer fruits, and planting the new seedlings for the coming winter. Inspired by this time of adjustment, I wrote this short story. I hope you enjoy.
