Sunday 10th September 2017 OK, I’m so ready for my writing vacation to be over. I’ve been so bored this evening, not knowing what to do with myself. At least some friends have been in the eyewall of Hurricane Irma so Facebook has been entertaining if nothing else. In less than a week I have [...]
Saturday 26th August 2017 I’ve made a vow to myself that now the edits have been done, save for any tidy up work before sending it back to my agent, I’m going to take until the end of September off. Technically I’ve been in this state since the beginning of the week, but have been [...]
Tuesday 30th May 2017 / Wednesday 31st Mat 2017 - Chasepalooza is over and now it's time to fly home from Winnipeg, travelling via Calgary.
Monday 29th May 2017 - With a day free in Winnipeg before I fly home, it's time to do some last minute shopping, pack the case and reflect on this trip.

Sunday 28th May 2017 - With our chasecation now over, we now drive the 16 hours back to Winnipeg non-stop, trying not to get lost on the way.
Sunday 28th May 2017 There was no time to reflection, there was no time for melancholy. No sooner did our chase end, we were on the road heading back to Winnipeg. From NE Oklahoma it was a 16 hour drive and the plan was to drive nonstop, swapping out drivers along the way. As the [...]
Saturday 27th May 2017 - On our last chase day, we head down to NE Oklahoma to chase what looks like it could be the perfect environment for some very dangerous storms.
Saturday 27th May 2017 There’s been some debate about whether we would chase today or not. It’s a long drive back to Winnipeg and some people need to be back to work on Monday morning. I don’t fly home until Tuesday evening but I’m not interested in making that journey back to Canada later by [...]
