Nature wins.

As I start to look beyond Episode 5 - I know you haven't seen 4 yet, let alone 5, but it is close! - the direction for the future plots start to expand from the scribbled notes and flowcharts. Trying to avoid spoilers,  but one theme that permeates throughout the Hadrian's Gate series is the... Continue Reading →

Blockers!

Taken from Ask the Author: Georgia Knight, posted on goodreads  Q. How do you deal with writer’s block? I've found writing the Hadrian's Gate series that the words have flowed readily, probably because of the many characters and changing scenes. On occasions, when one scene has been a challenge, I've jumped to another and started on... Continue Reading →

Coming soon… Broken Bottle

It was dark, cold, and the rain dripping through the rotten roof impossible to escape.

A final look at the smashed up drone. He gripped the blaster tightly, one hand on the butt, one on the barrel. With a determined shake of the weapon, he forced the expression of dread from his face. Go, scared young boy, arrive, the angry man. How dare they come to his world? How dare... Continue Reading →

Inspirations..?

Three years ago, I was sat in a similar place to where I am now (a few doors down) when I wrote my first ever blog post. The blog is long since defunct, so you will not be able to find it, but I'm compelled to write similar content now. The reason for the original... Continue Reading →

A Corrupt Friendship

Chilake and Grayling This long-standing friendship goes back to the early days of Chilake’s career, where the aspiring politician courted the media to raise his profile.
