Hollow Earth


Lots of twins have a special connection – being able to finish each other’s sentences; sensing what the other is thinking; perhaps even knowing when the other is in trouble or in pain – but for 12-year-old twins, Matt and Emily Calder, the connection is beyond special. Together, the twins have extraordinary powers – they are able to bring art to life, or enter paintings at will. Their abilities are sought by villains trying to access the terrors of Hollow Earth – a place where all the demons, devils and creatures ever imagined lie trapped for eternity.

The twins flee with their mother to the security of an island, off the west coast of Scotland, where their grandfather has certain protective powers of his own. But too much is at stake, and the twins aren’t safe there either. The villains will stop at nothing to find Hollow Earth and harness the powers within…

As is my custom, I always read my novel two days before the publication date to see if it holds my interest. I'm 146 pages into it and have not dozed off yet. In all honesty, I do not remember writing most of this and don't believe I did. My characters did. #Writing

Today, Donald Trump accused nurses of stealing masks and running a black market.

Not only is there no bottom, but we have punched down into another universe.

There's not much to laugh at these days, but whenever I phone someone, I always start with, "Oh, good, I caught you at home."

It's something.
