    I live in an old farmhouse on a mountainside in southern Spain. I paint and do crafts. I have two rescue dogs and a cat we found on the land when we moved here. I have written nine novels for all target markets in a variety of genres. I live to write.

    What a horrendous experience, Hilly. Incredible to think it really happened. You write it in a way that makes it totally believable. I’m glad you’re still with us!

    I think the lack of formatting kind of adds to it...you're not coherent in that state and it made me feel queasy reading it. Great stuff.

    I always read my work out loud and often do the 'voices'. If I'm puffing, then I know the sentence is too long. Good luck to TenacityFlux. We all might get there one day. You never know...

    You should see my vacuum and array of dusters. Should've got my money back on them but I keep purchasing more in the hope that one of them might work. Mind you, this is coming from someone who has realised her dress is on inside out. Glad I haven't ...

    Hi Hil. It wasn't so much the seasick (yuck) but the fact I nearly died. I was actually going over the rail until my dad grabbed me. It frightened him more than me at the time. (But then frightened me a lot later when I thought about it.)

    Hi Mezz. My dad made wine out of my sister's left over fruit salad from her wedding. (Don't ask!) He doesn't drink, so he kept adding sugar and stirring (not with a Black and Decker drill, mind) but it was powerful stuff. I think I can remember the ...

    Whoa that's some comp entry Hilly. You must have been terrified. I've only ever been on one rough crossing and that was from Ze Brugge to Felixstowe and relived the turbulence when reading your story.
