The Time Thief has struck again!
Posted on Saturday, August 27th, 2016
Where does time go? I mean, really? Where does it go? I travel through the days merrily doing my thing and BAM! Another year – no wait – TWO years has passed since I last updated my website.
HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?
The next question is, what to tell you. SO much has happened. I went to Hong Kong for literary festival and had an amazing time! It is a different world over there – but love of fantasy united us. And you might notice that I took Pegasus, the Minotaur and Dirian (the Dark Searcher) with me as well.
There is also something that happened that had me and my friends in hysterics. We found this restaurant that had amazing food – but when we walked past it after it was closed for the night, we saw a rat in the window. Now most people would be grossed out. But not us. As I said, we laughed and yes, we did eat there again because they had excellent vegetarian food! If it’s good enough for rats, it’s certainly good enough for us.
Then this past March we headed back to Hawaii!
The last time we were there was to do research for Pegasus 5 which is set there. This time, it was for the launch! I did book signings and saw schools which were amazing. But it was SOOOOOO HOTTTTTTT there! But beautiful.
And lets see, while in Hawaii, I took some time to go whale watching – you all know how much I love whales! But instead of finding a whale, I found a mermaid instead!
‘What? A mermaid you say’
Well, OK, she wasn’t a mermaid, but that’s what she looked like when I first saw her. The truth was, she was a woman who’d been washed out into the ocean and spent the night treading water. I shouted out that there was someone in the water (Yes, I can be a bit loud at times) and the captain came. Then we threw a life ring to the woman. After that, the Coast Guard was called and she was rescued.
Also, since last visiting this blog, I wrote Valkyrie 3 which is now out in the UK and is coming out in the USA later this year. And, much to my heavy heart, I wrote the final Pegasus book. We called it – Pegasus and the End of Olympus…. I tried to make this the biggest adventure yet! But only you can tell me if I succeeded. I can tell you that it’s set in London this time. And to do research for the book, I managed to arrange a visit to the secret tunnels and hidden places under Charing Cross Station. So some of those pics are here too.
So now that both Pegasus and Valkyrie series are finished, I found myself wondering what to do next. So to avoid getting myself into trouble by not having enough to do, I have started a new series. This one is about The PHOENIX! I’m well into book one and having a blast!
There is more news to come, but I’ll let you know more about that, when I can. For now, and as always, I promise not to let years pass between updates!
