A wonderful time was had by all the fundraising evening for the Young Oncology Unit at the Christie Hospital... I was honoured to be invited to be one of the speakers - in the company of inspiring (and entertaining) women like Val McDermid and Susan Calman. Not to mention the inspiring women on the committee who put so much passion into raising funds for this wonderful cause...

Honoured to be a part of it!

Wotever World returns to the Hot August Fringe each Tuesday to present the ever-popular Wotever Sex series. This year we explore the topics of Lust, Love and Death.

Chirpy topics that fluff about... but what is IT ALL about?

For the Forth year running we take part in Hot August Fringe with fresh, thought provoking and amazingly sexy stuff. We invite some of our favourite Performers and give them free hands to work within our theme, and this year it is:

LIFE - what is a good life, what sort of Queer Life do we strive for? Are we happy? Life Skills for QueerBrains.....

LUST - my lust, your lust everyBODY lust? Lust that scare and lust that hurts, in lust we love and trust...

DEATH - one thing that is so human. We are all gonna die. What is death, how do we celebrate the ones who died. Straight Death vs Queer Death. Bed Death and Beds Alive...

Three Tuesdays that are connected and clever, Different and Diverse. Erotic and Potent. Queer and Normal.

I'm absolutely delighted to report that I have just won The Wirral Festival of Firsts Poetry Competition 2013, with my poem 'A Short History Of Unicorns'.

www.festivaloffirsts.com

The judge was Colin Watts, a poet I respect. I don't know about other writers out there – but when a poet whose work I admire likes my work, it means a huge amount. It's a great boost.

Thank you Wirral Festival of Firsts!

Thanks to Eric Page at GScene Magazine for this great review!
GSCENE JUNE 2013
Book review: 'The Palace of Curiosities' - Eric Page

Cast out by Victorian society, eve and Abel find succour from an unlikely source. They soar to fame as The Lion Faced Girl and The Flayed Man, star performers in professor Josiah Arroner's Palace of Curiosities. Set in 1850s London, this is the story of Eve and Abel, both freaks of nature searching for escape. It tenderly explores what it's like to be different and traces their struggle for self-discovery on the boundaries of what is perceived as human.

Garland has produced a fascinating and delightful book. Like a cross between Philip Pullman and Angela Carter, she takes us on an evocative and wonderful journey, full of magical delights and stunning set pieces.

It's her debut novel and such an accomplished work. Her style is a joy. She made me gasp with the audacity of her ideas and smile with the lush beauty of her prose. Check her website for performance, poetry and written work. She's as interesting as the characters she creates!

Go and buy yourself a copy now, please – you'll love it!
