running against time

Writing historical fiction: This is my story…

I have always loved writing. As a child in my early teens I wrote a fantasy novel based on a character being stranded in a swamp, who rescues a mysterious girl fleeing a flock of deadly gargoyles (or something like that). I can’t remember what the outcome was. Knowing how a teenage boy operates they probably had sex and […]

Self publishing: The end of traditional publishing?

So we’re in the age of self publishing, print on demand reigns supreme, and the big publishers out there are struggling, failing, and their evil reign might just be coming to an end. I can hear all those writers out there struggling to even get their manuscript read, let alone published, scream out with delight. […]

What’s coming…

With the launch of Running Against Time late last year, things have been busy. Not to forget the addition of two wonderful little munchkins to our family! But things are about to get busier, much busier! For 2013 I have big plans, in running, and writing. And I intend to bring everyone here along for […]

How can you write an autobiography about running? You haven’t done anything!

It’s a fascinating experience to go through as an author; completing a book and sending it out there into the world, for other people to read, experience, criticise, and talk about. Just to have people purchase my novel is a huge complement, but to have them read and react to it. Well, money can’t buy […]

The power of music – and other musings…

Funny how music can transport you miles away and years in time apart. Listening to Silversun Pickups the other day I was there reading once more, Pat Farmer’s Pole to Pole. Better yet, I was there running beside Pat again, through South America. I was right there beside him, support vehicle beside us, middle of […]

Eat & Run – A review

Am I just jaded because of my injury and the fact I haven’t been able to run for months? And even before that, because I couldn’t run like I used to run pre-Fuji and pre-permanent degenerative injury? Or did Scott Jurek’s novel lack something? Or am I just jealous of the fact he has such […]

Does Running = Injury?

I was at the Hares & Hounds Ultra race in the Queensland Glasshouse Mountains on Sunday. No, I wasn’t running. Not even in the 5km event. Why? Because I’m injured. So I was there purely to volunteer and sell a few copies of my book. While there, I got talking with quite a few other […]

Learning something new as an adult?

I’ve just stared skipping. A new challenge for 2013. Why? Because I’ve heard it’s good for running barefoot. It helps strengthen the feet and ankles. Something I’m in dire need of! I’ve also started some new stretching that I hope will help… but that’s another story… Little did I know how hard it would be! […]

A New Year a New You?

5 Steps to achieving your New Years Resolutions OK, we all do it. That calendar turns over and it’s like we’ve heard the starting gun go off to a new race. We’re hell bent on undoing the sins of the past year or years, and we’re going to do it as fast as we can! […]
