50 Shades of Bringlish...

I love the English language. It's like a living thing, ever changing, constantly evolving.

Although English has many rules - as any student will know! - most are fluid and exceedingly 'iffy'. 

From shire to shire and shore to shore, it's seldom the same language. 

The language of kings, and paupers, poets, and Vikings. So many vibrant shades and regional variations, a patch-word quilt of our history, and of lives that are no more.

What's not to love? 

All the Silly Walkers in the house say YEAH!

Random, but True...

Did you know there are 4174 hillforts dotted about the British Isles and Ireland?

No. Neither did I. 

Have fun playing about with this handy online atlas!

You're welcome!

An Interview With Yours Truly...

Hello, everyone. How was your weekend?

Well, it's been the annual Lytham Club Day event here in my wee corner of Blighty. In other words, parades, picnics, lashings of Prosecco, and lots of partying in the sun.

Anyway, when I arrived home, footsore but happy, I found that my gorgeous author gal-pal Terry has uploaded my recent interview to her blog. 

Here's a bit about Terry and her wonderful books...

Terry Lynn Thomas grew up the San Francisco Bay Area, which explains her love of foggy beaches, windy dunes, and gothic mysteries. When her husband promised to buy Terry a horse and the time to write if she moved to Mississippi with him, she jumped at the chance. Although she had written several novels and screenplays prior to 2006, after she relocated to the South she set out to write in earnest and has never looked back. Now Terry Lynn writes the Sarah Bennett Mysteries, set on the California coast during the 1940s, which&nbspfeature a misunderstood medium in love with a spy. She also pens the Cat Carlisle Mysteries, a series of novellas set in 1930s Cumberland, which features a feisty middle-aged woman who can’t seem to stay out of trouble.

If you like Mary Stewart, Victoria Holt, or Dorothy Eden, or if gothic suspense is your thing, please give these books a go. Oh, btw, the next book in the Sarah Bennett Series, "Neptune's Daughter" will release on July 25th.
