Ocarina of Time (3DS)

What? A game diary entry? Surely not! Well, yes! I’ve been suffering from an extended period of gaming ennui of late, largely because between writing and working I never seem to have much in the way of time. On top of that, there really hasn’t been much of any interest happening gaming wise. Then the

Review: Firestarter

Firestarter by Stephen King My rating: 5 of 5 stars Very very good. There are a few odd little phrases used here and there – the occasional repetition.

From Within

My first novel, From Within, is now available on Kindle in the Amazon Store. From Within is a pulp potboiler of the kind popular in the 1980s and 1990s and, sadly, long absent from the book shop shelves. It’s short, fast, and gory – perfect for a sunny afternoon.     “They stopped, looking around,
