ABOUT PRUE

A former journalist from Australia who graduated with majors in history and politics, I’m now a cross genre writer who is also a farmer, dog owner, gardener and embroiderer.

I didn’t plan to be a writer in those early days, I was far more a reader. But like most writers, I’ve always written – seeing the world through the medium of the word. It was inevitable that I become an independent writer simply because I love being at the cutting edge of something and together with many other ‘indies’, being at the forefront of the New Age of Writing and Publishing is like being a sea captain in the Age of Exploration. And I’ve been fortunate – winning silver medals and honourable mentions for my work and to have them ranking unbroken in the UK for the last ten wonderful months.

I try to make time for other things in life. I love wine, chocolate and cooking delectable cakes and biscuits. I mess about in my gardens, dirt under the fingernails and a plant catalogue alongside a cup of tea. I stitch (I love needle and silks) – to wind down. I walk (a lot) with the Jack Russells but more than anything, I like being on beaches, boats or the water – being by the sea is implicit for my writing to sing.

Winter ills…

When the winter ills hit the house and one vacillates from being Super Nurse to not quite so Super Wife and back again, one’s attention span is pretty short.

So what to do?

The sea and me…

Took myself off kayaking for an hour and a half this afternoon. Just me and the empty sea, a few pelicans, some cormorants, gulls and the very occasional whiffle of wind.

Fencing…

I can’t believe that almost a week has passed since I posted on the blog. Does it really matter, I ask myself? Probably not.

Which prompts me to ask what is my blog actually for.
