I nearly gave this webpage up a year ago, but decided to keep it active.
I remember those wonderful years of blogging when I'd update everything once a week or so, but things change. Which doesn't mean I haven't been writing.
I've finished the Stone Road, and we'll see if it finds a home. I'm currently working on a new novel, tentatively entitled Stick. It's for children and I'm having a wonderful time with it (I've just started on the second draft). Meanwhile, there's a novel for adults bubbling along in the background. It's called My Father's Fortune but I'm still not sure what it's about.
I tend to find that I don't even begin to understand a book these days until I have written and discarded a draft, which is a very dismaying, yet oddly liberating, sort of way to write. And, I have found that it eventually produces something much better, cleaner, and usually quite unexpected.
The Stone Road took five drafts before it began to make any sense, and the second last of those was a complete rewrite. I'm very happy with that book. Not least in what it taught me. Hopefully, I'll explore a bit of that process here.
If anyone is interesting in reading something newish, let me direct you here https://www.antisf.com.au/e-reader/dimension-6-speculative-fiction/dimension-6-generic/file/160-dimension-6-issue-14

And should anyone want to read some older work can I suggest here, where I am slowly putting up my older published stories as I find them. There's some wonderful authors over at Curious Fictions, definitely worth checking out.
Finally, I am now a father. My daughter Essie Clay Jamieson was born last year. She is the most wonderful, challenging adventure, and I don't know how I ever lived without her in my life. My partner Fiona and I are very happy.
So, that's what I've been up to, dear, imaginary reader. How about you?
