Coffee? Let’s Chat: 25 March 2017

*sits back* Hello! Welcome to a weekly meme I’ve decided to create… quick info:

Coffee? Because personally I find coffee bitter, and don’t like it. But if you want some, go ahead!

Let’s Chat. I want to just chat about my week… you know, talk about stuff that’s been happening. And maybe ask you guys questions?

And let’s sit down, enjoy the coffee (if you drink it), and chat.

So… my week.

Horse Riding: The Question of ETHICS

Horse Riding: The Question of ETHICS

DISCLAIMER: This post is simply my own thoughts and opinions. I am in no way trying to make you feel bad, or nag at you not to ride horses. These simply a post about a question that has come into my mind a lot since last night. 


If you saw my previous post on the fact that I am starting to go vegetarian, you’d know that I’d brought up the question of ethics and eating animals. The gist of it was that I found eating meat to be a form of cannibalism, and as someone with deep respect for animals, I felt that I couldn’t keep doing that.

Looking on the internet about vegetarianism, I rediscovered a YouTube channel I’ve seen before, run by a vegan woman. Yes, I know that she’s been called out countless times, that’s she’s a faker, whatever. I’ve seen it all. That’s not the point of me telling you this, though.

The point is that I went over to have a look at her instagram. And I found this post:

AUTHOR INTERVIEW: Kathleen Baldwin

AUTHOR INTERVIEW: Kathleen Baldwin

In December of 2016 I approached the lovely Kathleen Baldwin and asked to review her bestselling Young Adult book, A School For Unusual Girls. The book is the first in the Regency romance series Stranje House, following the story of young, British Georgiana Fitzwilliam.

Here’s a little a teaser about it from the paperback edition:

IT’S 1814. Napoleon is exiled on Elba. Europe is in shambles. Britain is at war on four fronts. And at Stranje House, a School For Unusual Girls, five young ladies are secretlybeing trained for a world of spies, diplomacy, and war…

After accidently setting her father’s stables on fire while performing a scientific experiment, Miss Georgiana Fitzwilliam is set to Stranje House. But Georgie has no intention of becoming a simpering, pudding-headed, marriageable miss. She plans to escape as soon as possible – until she meets Lord Sebastian Wyatt. Thrust into a desperate mission to invent a new invisible ink for the English war effort, Georgie and Sebastian must find a way to work together without losing their heads – or their hearts.

Not so long ago I once again approached Kathleen, and the result was that she very kindly agreed to be interviewed – read on if you’d like to know more about her thoughts, writing advice, and of course, bookworm habits!

AUTHOR INTERVIEW: Dario Cannizzaro

AUTHOR INTERVIEW: Dario Cannizzaro

Back in September the wonderful Dario Cannizzaro approached me to review his first published collection of short stories: Of Life, Death, Aliens and Zombies.
And no, I’m not usually the type of person to read about zombies! But I gave it a go, and was quite astonished at the level of contemplation on life, plus the quality of Dario’s writing. Read my review for the book here.
