Welcome to the Darkside...

...join me, Akasha Savage, as I brave the deepest dungeons and scale the misty mountains to achieve my dream: to see my novel Bathory in print. I will take you by the hand and keep you beside me as I cross this uncharted territory...

...let us step into the moonlit darkness together...

So you want to tread the boards?

My writing is skulking in the shadows...and it's not a happy bunny.

I've had to put my daughter, Katy, to the very top of my priorities list for the next few weeks. Her ambition in life is to become an actress. Next September she is hoping to start Drama School, which means we've been visiting prospective places in London: Guildhall, The Rose Bruford School of Acting, Central School for Speech & Movement, et cetera, et cetara, et cetera...all very exciting, but time consuming. Now she has to apply and attend audition after audition after audition to try and gain entry. I am lucky if I sit at my laptop for more than a handful of hours a week.
My Writers' Hat is hanging over the back of my chair gathering dust while I don my Mummy Hat.

...and I'm loving every minute...


  1. Writing is important, but not the MOST important.

  2. I agree Charles, although sometimes I have to remind myself of that fact!
