I have been rather neglecting this site recently, as I have been extremely busy with all the projects I'm currently working on. I've been finalising the research for my non-fiction, ensuring that my folklore articles are submitted to The Moorlander on time and trying to navigate an unexpected twist in Dragonheart - those pesky characters have minds of their own and clearly have not read my chapter plan!
You may be aware that, when I am not writing or undertaking some form of historical research, I'm an actor. I split my time between voice acting and theatre, mainly as part of Circle of Spears Productions, the theatre company and indie audio production house that I co-run with my husband Mark and our colleague Sam Burns.
Today, Circle of Spears had some fantastic news. My historical drama WITCH has just been confirmed by the Culture Bite festival for a performance at The Great Barn, Manor Farm Site, Bury Street, Ruislip on 30th October. Not only will this be the show's London premiere, it will also mark our 75th performance!
You cannot imagine how exciting this is for me. When I wrote the show back in 2016, which seems a lifetime away now, I never imagined that, three years later, we would still be performing it regularly. I never imagined that it would be used as Theatre in Education for Year 8/9 students and undergrads. I certainly never imagined that we would have our 75th performance in London. Writing has taken me to some wonderful and unexpected places and I can't wait to see where it takes me next!
Tickets for the London premiere will be managed by Culture Bite and I will post details as soon as they become available, so please do keep checking back.
Right, time for another coffee and to work out what these elves are up to!
Who is Blogging Today?
Sometimes it will be me. At other times, you may well be treated to one of Duseena Lorafiel's herbal remedies, or perhaps Zilyana Yllayra's etiquette tips. Aamena Hinnorwen may pop in to talk about a new skill she has learned. There is always a chance that we may be graced by the presence of His Imperial Majesty the Emperor, who likes nothing better than to discuss the many benefits of the land he rules. There will be maps, sketches, photos, news, character information, guest blogs from other authors... all sorts of different ways for you to delve into the world of the Chronicles.
