I have posted a link to a blog post about my YA Dystopian/Sci-fi novel, Echoes from the Lost Ones, that was the subject of a thesis by an Italian student of linguistics and translation.


I would be interested on your thoughts, if any, about your experiences of reading good, or badly translated books.

Here are some Haikus I wrote for Boris the feral cat who lives with us. Well, he lives outside and we provide shelter, food and lots of snuggles.


The photographs that go with the Haikus are stylistic. I wanted them to look like pastel drawings so I used a slow shutter speed to create the blur and sense of movement in his play.




From out of the blue


Whiskers and claws, swipe at the


Mouse unused to play




Feral leaves, feral


Cat, both fall and tumble in


Autumn’s blustering



Beyond the greyness


Red. A slash of hue amidst


The colourless day




They become circle


For one brief moment and then


Split like a seedpod
