Busy days. I started a new day job in April and in the aftermath of my father’s death we’re now in the final stages of a family house sale, so all of this has been taking up some time. Lots of property stuff happening: we're having part of the roof re-done. I’ve also been teaching a creative writing summer school, which is always a pleasure, and keeping up with the Skype classes.

However, I’ve been putting together a new short story collection (some published material, some new) for a publisher, which will be out either later this year or in 2016 and working on some anthology commissions and subscription stories. Once everything settles down, which won’t be long now, I’ll be putting together some non fiction material as well. There is an on-going novel project, but I need to get out into the county and do some research: old churches, mainly. It'll all get done in due course.

Otherwise, we’ve had a wet week, but summer is well and truly entrenched: runner beans and marrows in the garden, beautiful hanging baskets in town, and the landscape is taking on that tranquil post midsummer aspect with all the hay bagged and the fields golden in the distance.

I'm afraid you have seen quite a lot of it already!

Always good to see a post from you. Understandable you've been more than busy, but glad you've had time to give an update. I hope things do settle into a more comfortable phase for you, and let you enjoy life a little more and also get back to writing fiction again.

With the new job, I'm unlikely to be back at the fiction face any time soon. But that's how it is.

We're OK at the moment, though just lost the dog, which is a sadness, obviously.

And it's good to hear from you, too.
