About Me (& my favourite posts)

Hello there and thanks for visiting.  Here’s a little bit about me…

(scroll to near the bottom of this post to see my favourite posts and click here for my media kit.)

I am a mum and wife, which gives me plenty to write about!  I am also a self-publisher.

My blog covers all sorts of things from my daily life including reading, writing and parenting (our daughter was born in 2009).

I love to write, particularly in rhyme and I’ve produced a book series for children in rhyme.

You will also find me penning flash fiction (usually 100 words or less and usually from a prompt).  I find that this keeps my imagination and creative juices flowing, which is a challenge I love.  You can read my flash fiction here and my WonderfulWorldofWriting pieces here.

This is a great opportunity to showcase my favourite blog posts:

How about flash fiction?  Well, I really do love writing these pieces.  Perhaps it’s because although they are short, they challenge my writing and actually, I find them quite intense.  Visiting Hours is one of my favourites to date.

My WonderfulWorldofWriting is another area of my blog that I love putting together.  I seem to keep these posts for poetry and when I get in the flow, there’s no stopping me!  It’s none of these… was so much fun to write 🙂

How do you approach homework was a post written for the parenting category of my blog.  It highlights how homework can be an ironic balancing act between necessity and burnout.

Among the collaborative posts I’ve written is a review of ‘The BFG’ by Roald Dahl.  This is in-depth look at a classic book by the famous author and the brand were pleased with the “really thorough review.”

  1. Hi Carol,
    I’ve just had two of my short stories published in an anthology and wondered if you would review the book on your blog?
    It’s called ‘The Milk of Female Kindness’ and includes short fiction, poetry, art, memoir and medical writing on the theme of honest motherhood. Some of the writers have recently given birth, others are grandmothers. Some, like me, are childless; my writing is inspired by memories of my own mother. Some of the pieces will make you smile, others are heartbreaking.

    I’d be very happy to send you an e-book or hard copy, or some sample stories.
    Best wishes and thanks,
    Sandra @ https://www.sandradanby.com/
