Passion and Pain

A lot of authors I know don’t write full time.

I’m one of those authors.

The simple fact is that it doesn’t generate enough income to chuck the day job away.

But it will never stop me from doing what I love to do.

I’ve recently been profiled on David McDonald’s blogsite as part of his “Paying for Our Passion” series, where authors from a wide range of genres and places talk about what they sacrifice to create.

You can read my piece here –

On the other side of the coin, there’s another series of guest posts on authors’ fetishes, or secret inspirations, over at Lee Battersby’s blog.

In my guest post I reveal that I actually have a very messy dungeon in my house.

Thanks heaps to David and Lee for giving me the opportunity to hijack their websites. 😛
