The Scatterling series – 11, 12, 13 & 14

Mid-way through my summer editing job, I am finally able to see the sense of the book. This augurs well for the planned final read through in a couple of weeks' time.  Time is precious.

I know this because someone once bought us one - and we framed it. Rather fittingly - or... Continue Reading →
