If you’ve been around this blog for a moment, you might have heard me going on about this novel I’ve written. While I was writing, I found it pretty helpful to visualise the characters I was writing about. I found some inspirational images on Pinterest to help me imagine the characters in the book. The […]

Pink skies over Cabarita Beach.
