Hello, welcome to my blog site. I use these pages to not only promote my book series: Crystal Waters, but so you can get a taste of what really goes on behind the scence, so-to-speak. My thoughts, idea's and feelings are poured lovely into, what I call, my diary for all to see. I'm sure there will be many happy moments, emotional traumas and doubts, but it will all enhance my intention; to capture an honest and heartfelt progression-log of my life, as a writer. Hope you enjoy :) Any comments are most welcome.

Book Series Revealed
As we wait for the new book to arrive I thought I would let you in on some of my research and back plots that go on behind the scenes. Here are some of my notes (totally in the raw and unedited) for you to check out. Spoiler alert! If you haven't read Book Three (Crystal Waters Next Stop Antarctica) you may not want to read on, so I can safely say that you have been well and truly warned :)
·Atlas and Pleione
(Robert’s grandparents) were from Venus and had an idea to come to Earth to
make it a better place. They built the city of Atlantis and when they were
finished they discovered the secrets of the time-travelling gateway to the
ancient worlds. They submerged Atlantis Hundreds of feet under the ice of
Antarctica encased with a magic shield.
·They found by using the
Auroras; shimmering curtains of light around Antarctica, and magic crystals -
each founded in the countries earth, it connected from each country to
Antarctica. These channels pushed forward their magic to the doorways, and if
the owner of these doorways had the right Crystal and a key (any shiny
household object e.g. mirror, silver teapot, goblets, cutlery, bottles, crystal
balls) they would be able to time travel. They allocated gate-keepers for each
one around the globe.
·Atlas and Pleione had
seven daughters: Maia, Electra, Taygete, Alcyone, Celaeno, Sterope and
·Over the years Pleione
got greedy and wanted more power and she eventually became evil. Things turned
nasty between her and her husband Atlas.
·Atlas turned against
Pleione when he found out her true intentions: to rule over the countries with
a rod of iron. All the evil people in the world she moulded into her way of
thinking, Hitler – thinking he was making a purer race, Jack the ripper –
ridding the world of the lowlifes in the world etc.
·A bloody battle was
fought. Pleione’s army against Atlas’ army. Pleione’s army won and Atlas was
killed and six of their daughters were imprisoned in an ice-tomb in the depths
of the Atlantian city. Merope escaped.
·Merope met Plato and they
had a baby boy – Sisyphus. Pleione and her army found the couple and Merope and
Plato escaped yet again, but to their horror Pleione captured their son
Sisyphus and brought him up as her own.
·When Sisyphus became a
man he met and married Sheila. They had a baby boy – Robert.
·Pleione corrupted the
mind of her son with her evil ways. And after she dies Sisyphus moves away from
his wife and son and is made King of Atlantis.
·But the city is now
threatened; because of his greedy manner and attitude towards life, which goes
against everything Venus/Atlantis represents, as Venus is normally a place of
harmony, balance, sincerity, love and truth. The Venurans are good at delicate
diplomacy when dealing with sensitive matters. Their race has enlightenment and
is in connection with the spiritual world. Venurans also administer compassion
and consciously choose forgiveness in a situation. And because the gatekeeper
(Pleione and then Sisyphus) caused a rift in the whole time-travel scheme Atlantis
started to slowly die and the shield of protection was slowly melting away, but
they were both too pig-headed to see it.
Sisyphus (Robert’s dad)
thinks he can save his world by sacrificing Robert.He has found that by using numerology
Roberts’ birthday and age is significant to the cause. Robert is born 24th
January 2+4 make 6. The symbolism behind number six is legend: With Venus as
its ruler six represents harmony, balance, sincerity, love, and truth, six
naturally reveals solutions for us in calm, unfolding manner. And connecting
Robert to the machine he has built, deep in the ice caves of Atlantis, will
restore Atlantis to its former glory.
And so, with that left with you to tantalise the taste buds, I better be off and get on with my writing. Book Six is way behind schedule and as I keep telling myself, 'it won't write itself!', so ta-ta for now xx
