As is the way when an author releases a new book, I've been scanning the early reviews of The Clock in My Mother's House. There are twelve on Goodreads at the moment, so it's easy to see when new ones appear - I'm not stalking reviewers or anything. Soon I'll forget all about them - … Continue reading The story behind the story

So what happens? I disappear. I don't update things. I slink sideways when it looks … Continue reading Nothing to see here
