Feeling excited...

Well the day has finally arrived...

The doorbell rang, and a rather lovely UPS man handed me a package.

We parted company, with a jolly smile.

 I carefully took my package in, not realising it was going to be one of the greatest days of my life.

Now feeling super excited that the day has finally arrived, after so long.

The proof copy of my Young Adult/New Adult novel, 'The Curtain Twitchers of Oakley Place', now sits within the palms of my hand. I feel like a very wobbly jelly at present.

I have at least pinched myself one or twice.

Feeling very chuffed and a little drunk on excitement too.

So now I'm going to be super busy giving it a final check, before release date in April 2017.

Pictures and info to follow here soon...

The Only Home I Know

Dusty doorways, hid from view.
Sheltering under starry skies.
Wrapped in thrown out blankets,
found in the trash.
Looking in dustbins, for scraps of food
This is far from the life I led.

Far from the opulent heady days
Those days, when a warm bed
 and being fed were over-rated and understated.
When mass media was my daily bread.
But here I am now destitute, past refute 
Rebutted and undone.

Nights of abuse, misused by lost youth
Frozen most nights, fearful thoughts
Longing for the great life I once led.

And I watch each passing stranger.
Hoping that one will be my saviour
Lifting me from daily danger.
Giving, me a chance to sleep
And return to the life I once led 
Happily sleeping in a nice warm bed.
