I’ve been terribly slack…but then, you see, I haven’t actually been writing! I KNOW. Shock, horror, etc. Thing is, I got a bit tired out, and my creative drive dwindled, and there’s no point forcing yourself to do something that doesn’t come smoothly if you just need a bit of a rest. So instead, I … More Autumn update!
It was a nice day yesterday! And to celebrate, I took these photos in my garden (on my iPhone 5) and fiddled with them in the app Snapseed…
On Sunday evening I travelled down to Plymouth ready for events at the lovely (huge!) Shakespeare Primary School. I always look out for interesting things on journeys so that I can photograph them (being slightly obsessed with landscapes, lines, and the editing app Snapseed). Below are some of my favourites from the journey down and … More A Journey in Photographs
I love taking photos, as any visitor to this blog can see. On Saturday I went on a short course to learn how to use my iPhone camera more effectively. Sometimes it’s just not practical to lug around my lovely Canon DSLR, and I have been frustrated by the results on my iPhone from time … More An iPhone Photography Lesson
In my last post, I revealed that all the photographs used in my new book PICTURE HIM were taken by me. Below you can find some of my favourites. Many thanks to Grace Wilcox for being such a willing zombie princess, and to mum Helen Moulford who costumed her so spectacularly! These photos were taken … More The photographs in Picture Him
It’s been a CRAAAAZY week! I started my events on Tuesday, when Cathy Brett and I did some Electrigirl workshops at Burford School (where I’m patron of reading) Then on Thursday, I spent World Book Day itself with the students of Rye St Antony in Oxford, who were fab and really enthusiastic. Huge thanks to … More World Book Day and Ox Comic Con – whoosh!
I took this this morning with my iPhone 5. Isn’t it beautiful? Frost makes incredible patterns. I was sorry I had to remove it in order to drive my car!
Back in October last year, the author Lee Weatherly (have you read her ANGEL trilogy? It is AWESOME) asked me if I’d take some portrait photos of her. She had a new book due out and wasn’t happy with the photo she already had. I said I’d be delighted – any excuse to practise my … More My first commission as a photographer
I went out for a walk yesterday afternoon. There’s a very beautiful magnolia tree three houses down. I love magnolia. When I was young, there was a magnolia tree in next door’s garden. I used to collect the fallen petals and sew them into fairy skirts for my dolls.
What a beautiful weekend! We spent Sunday at Hampton Court Palace (where I was RECOGNISED! A real celebrity moment 🙂 hello to the girl from Didcot who was walking alongside and spotted me!) and I couldn’t believe it was possible to walk around without a jumper on. I hope you had a good weekend and … More Sunshine and crocuses
