On Writing, Finally

3. Stop, look, and listen. And smell and taste while you’re at it. Books are a wonderful way to convey your ideas, but if you want to add texture and substance, you have to use all your senses. It’s not enough to say you ate delicious Buffalo chicken wings, though to be honest that should be enough. From what I understand, there are a few people that have never eaten Buffalo wings before. For those people, you can tell them about the steam rising off the plate of red-sauced chicken parts, awash… Continue

If you read my previous post...

If you read my previous post, you learned the details of an experience about a snake.



A reader brought up the point that this scenario could not have taken place because of strict Air Traffic violations/security/ strict laws about carry-on’s. And when clarifying this, my friend writes: “P. S. This story happened in the ‘70s and quarantine had been enforced after my friend was able to bring his "pets" home.”



Isn’t that like life? Rules change, different measures are taken… Continue

There's something in that laundry basket.

This next story will make you cringe, turn your stomach or just amuse you. My friend, Bob Chaffart, relates the following experience:



"Although all of my friends are distinctive, I have a friend who is even more unique than most. He has a passion that most over-the-hill parents hate! He has an obsession for snakes! The bigger the better; the fatter, the more appealing; the longer, the more delightful!"



Is it any wonder that when he went to South America as a student… Continue

Ah, Spring that wonderful season of renewal and rebirth. Much like writing; Spring brings to mind newly budding ideas, forming and taking shape under caring compassionate hands. Like a gardener tending his plants with gentle concern while making certain that weeds don’t overtake the beauty, a writer must do the same thing.

It is often difficult to see the weeds for a weed and not beautiful flowers when a new work is first flowing from the tips of fingers tapping in rapid fire…

Fantastic new chart position on Amazon UK

Wow, 'A Study in Red' just rose to number 21 in the Amazon UK best selling Jack the Ripper book listings. This morning it was at 33, having reached number 27 earlier in the week. This is great although it can just as easily slip down the chart again by tomorrow or even tonight as I believe the listings are updated almost hourly according to sales records.



For now, though, I consider that a great position to have reached against so many very fine books by very illustrious authors. I'm… Continue

Women's Rights in Nepal (Satis Shroff)

Women’s Rights in a Former Hindu Kingdom(Satis Shroff)



The work draws on my own experience and observations during my visits to Kathmandu. Since Nepal is one of those rare places which Nature and culture-enthusiasts would like to visit, I thought the plight of the Nepalese women ought to be told in your website, because till now Nepal is only known for its tough male Gurkha soldiers who fought on the side of the British in the First and… Continue

Now I'm writing articles for Hi-Brow Journals - And a great sales ranking too!

I'm pleased to say that I've been asked to contribute an article to 'The Journal of The Whitechapel Society 1888'. This is the journal of the prestigious 'Whitechapel Society 1888' that I found myself a member of soon after the release of the novel. I was approached by the editor when I contacted the journal about placing a book ad in their next issue. The article is called "Whodunnit?"..."I Dunno.", and I only wish that some of those here could get the chance to read it. Perhaps once… Continue
