If writing becomes difficult I sometimes give my head a change by thinking up some rhymes.  Most of them are drivel but I have just added the better ones to my author website.  Here is an example:

Don’t Get Caught By The Ghoulies

Don’t go out in the dead of night
Unless you’re prepared to quake
For as the darkness smothers the light
Nasty things awake
Not badgers, stoats, moths and rats
Or even weasels or shrews
But ghosts, werewolves and vampire bats
Things that will make you poo

Ghosts emerging out of the ground
Will freeze your blood to ice
Werewolves leaping without a sound
Will bite and slash and slice
Vampire bats will suck at your throat
And drain your blood away
And beware the witch with midnight cloak
She’ll fill you with dismay

So dreadful things are waiting for you
If you go out at night
Things to scare you through and through
Phantoms, ghosts and wights
But whilst these things are really bad
And might give you the hoolies
Whatever else you do my lad

Don’t get caught by the ghoulies

Tyger Pants 2

I've started work on the second book in my Tyger Pants series.

Tyger has managed to get hold of his dad's Editor and has escaped into Fictonia, the library dimension. Unfortunately he dropped the Editor just before he zapped through so now he's stuck.  But all he has to do is rescue a princess so things should go smoothly...

If you want to see a sample chapter of the first book in the series click here and follow the link.

I'll post a link to the first chapter of the new book soon.
