Here’s my latest column for The Baptist Times: Life in the Slow Lane
After two years work I’ve finally finished all 5 parts of my Twilight Fan Fiction “Aurora”. You can read them all here. Writing them has been so much fun and it’s kindled a desire to write my first original piece, which I’m starting this month.
In addition to writing fiction, there’ll be the usual selection of blogs on the various subjects I write about and hopefully a challenge or two along the way.
Why the big fuss over gay people? – An explanation of why some Christians struggle to accept homosexuality and equal marriage.
Here’s one I made earlier – With more and more people owning dishwashers, it’s imperative that we give all children the opportunity to one day isolate their own DNA with vodka, spit, salt a test tube and a dollop of washing up liquid.
Being Nice: The New Social Freakery – It seems sad to think that Sir Time Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web just so we could hurl abuse at one another.
Happy Thoughts – The importance of thinking postively.
Managing Expectations – Don’t bit off more than you can chew.
What would you like to read about? I keep three themed blogs, and they are coded here according to what’s in them. Recent posts from each are listed beneath that. Also below is the link to my page at the Bedfordshire on Sunday website, where I contribute for the Health and Beauty section. Right at the bottom is the “Twilight Zone…”
Mother of Reinventions
Focuses on issues that (mainly, but not exclusively) affect women; whether it be health, beauty, emotions, children, work, sparetime, whatever.
Tales from Lewis Lodge
This is my ‘what fell out of my head’ blog. Everything about my life goes into this blog: Cats, kids, husband, mad stuff my friends did, equally mad stuff in the news.
Everyday Life and Faith
I’m a Christian and every Friday I focus on a topic that interests me, relating it to the Bible, my experience of being a Christian woman and how I live that out in the twenty first century.
My Health and Beauty Blog at Bedfordshire on Sunday. There’s a new piece this month about instant beautification, plus others.
I’ve set the Aurora series seven years after the end of Breaking Dawn. It takes the Twilight characters and blends them with new ones that I’ve created. I don’t write to shock or titillate, I write to develop the characters and to tell a story. I am getting to grips with writing fiction, so any feedback you can give me would be greatly received.

Ness Masen is the new girl at Forks High. Who she is and who she appears to be are two different things. Ness is there to experience being regular teenage girl, but she has strange friends, a freaky bonding she has no choice over and her parents’ marriage just disintegrated. Being a teen looked easier in the movies…
Aurora 2: The Gift
Ness is spending Christmas in Britain with her friends Jess and Dan. They’re having a very British Christmas, with lots of turkey and tinsel. Odd, but Ness never remembered anyone mentioning that tragedy was to be part of it…
Aurora 3: Starlight
Ness’s History Teacher Stephanie Chambers is fed up with the same old same old and is getting a life. Into hers comes the mysterious Daniel Mitchell and she finds herself dragged into a dark and dangerous world. She might not be getting a life, she might be losing it.
Aurora 4: Moonrise
It should have been happily every after, but it isn’t. Jake and Ness are going through tough times and deep in the forest, not everything is moonlight and roses for Edward and Bella.
Aurora 5: Dark Star
On her 17th birthday, Maddie Mitchell wishes for two things; the guy under the clock and anything that helps her discover why her Dad vanished into thin air eleven years ago. A meeting with a strange woman gives her news of where he is and a warning that he’s in danger. Can she find Edward Cullen and her Dad before San Francisco is pulled into the Volturi’s latest scheme?
