2024 Update!

Image
 Hello stragglers, strays, and dashing rogues!  I hope any readers of this are having a wonderful start to the year. I hope it brings you all the joy and excitement that you wish for.  Last year in summary:  -  Concluded my studies at Swansea Uni! The stress was beyond anything I have ever encountered but I remain undefeated!  - Finished the first of a fantasy duology following a reckless Princess and her quest for peace.  - Wrote lots of poetry! It is time to release it into the world. - Pressed 190lbs in the gym (I know it's not writing relevant but honestly I was so chuffed it made my week).  - Learned how to cross-stitch!  - Went abroad for the first time in my life! It was amazing!  Hopefully, I will have many exciting things to share this year. I have a few projects in the work that I am excited about; not only fiction, but poetry, audio, and screen. Y'know what I'm like, it's either full throttle or it's nothing.  Happy to report though that for the first tim

 Hiya readers, passer-bys, and lost souls - good day to you! And Happy New Year!  If (like me) last year was a strange, horrid dream with no end - the new year finally arrives and brings hope for brighter days to come. I am ever the fatally optimistic.  Hopefully, this year will be full of wonder, love, and joy. I'm just excited to finally get to see the world!  Have a little Murphy to see you into the New Year.  All the best to you and yours!  Perry

Farewell 2021: Happy New Year!

Image
I've never made a habit out of doing a long post on social media because in some regards I've always been shy and private when it comes to myself. However, this year has been one of firsts! And I need to remind myself that I'm allowed to be proud.  I published my first book! Secrets of Baker Street will always have a spot in my heart also with the lovely people at Orange Pip Books. Perhaps in the future my lovely Watson and Holmes will get a resurgence? We shall have to see.  Then after that one Our Strange Symphony came along. A project I have been harbouring in my heart for years. A story of love springing unexpectedly - the best kind of love.  I published my first poems! Someone saw them and thought, 'Actually...this is pretty good!' - for someone who burned her diaries and poetry (I'm hardcore what can I say) and swore off the medium entirely... I am overjoyed.  I produced a flipping pilot for my series 'Dead Stiff' I got to work with such talented

Published Poetry

  Hello!  The realm of poetry has always been something that seemed to allude me. I remember having a go writing poetry in high school. It was very lovey-dovey and I tried to make everything rhyme - every single time - so for new words, I would mine - and the embarrassment was thine.  However, I have been inspired again; by the good, the bad, and the downright questionable.  But I am happy to report that perhaps I am not totally useless with poetry after all .  Poems Published  2021 'The Missing Person’s Advert', Bonemilk Anthology, Gutslut Press  2021 'Folk of the Glade' (page 76), Issue One: Swampland, Moss Puppy Mag , Autumn 2021 'Stargazer', Atmosphere, Gaia Lit  Autumn 2021 'Once A Month' (page 15), Issue Two,  Hallowzine 2021  'Sherwood in Season,' Issue Ten, Fahmidan Journal 2021 2022 'Silent Ravens', Issue Eleven: Magic, Re-Side , Spring 2022  'The Dolly Mixture', (page 44) Issue Twelve, Ice Lolly Review , Spring 2022 &#

Our Strange Symphony

Image
As of September 2021 I have birthed my second literary child into the world!  'Our Strange Symphony' is a piece of romantic new adult fiction about an architect trying to get her life back on track and an infamous musician who crashes her life.  Here is the blurb:  Katya Volokov's life was perfectly on track. Fresh out of university, Kat scored her dream job and her own apartment in her beloved city of London. With her crazy group of friends at her side and her tyrannous mother appeased - everything was set. Until it wasn't. With her plans obliterated, Kat falls apart only to wash up in the town her friends moved to after university ended: Brighton. She takes a job at the teashop, Victorious Sponge, while she puts herself back together and then figures out which step is right. If any of them are. Then she is reunited with Zack, an infamous classmate from her high-school days. Only now he's a rockstar, and notorious for different reasons. The pair discover they share

July Means It's Austen Month!

As is the custom with my life at the moment, July brings more news. My friends over at Lime-and-Dragon have invited me to be part of their Austen month!  If you know me well, I sold my soul to Jane Austen long ago, and ever since my soul has existed in the realms of romance. Naturally, when I did my degree at the University of Exeter, Austen was one of my favorite ports to call in my academic work.  So of course I jumped at the chance to be involved with their wonderful work. Their videos include reviews, tutorials, and academic analysis at some truly interesting games, books, films, and television. Definitely, worth a binge: those two are hilarious .  They will be posting throughout July with comments this year on everyone's least vexing protagonist: Emma.  Have a wonderful month!  Lime and Dragon  here
