Halfway

With the sixth book, I have reached the mid-point. This is the most challenging of the stories I've written about Ron, going deep into some areas which I've not seen in the style and genre. So forgive the relative lack of posting, as I am keen to get this finished before the end of the … Continue reading Halfway

Finished it this morning, whilst enjoying a brief, but long weekend from work. The Monster Inside was challenging, but also exciting and at some point you'll read a version of it.

Father Figure

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_9hfHvQSNo&list=RDMMqMdf1onDkxA&index=2&ab_channel=georgemichaelVEVO There's something about this, the glassy production and the gospel snap, plus the wounded tension which gives tremendous weight to the chorus. It reminds me of Prince's work around the same time, the mix of sacred and sexual, which is something that's interested me more than once. A prayer to a woman, without the … Continue reading Father Figure
