Welcome…

PLEASE NOTE: As I’ve mentioned on the homepage, I’ve now wound down my blogging & social media activity for the moment. Unfortunately, servicing my many platforms has become very time-consuming and left me feeling less focused on writing books and other things I love doing.

The good news is, I do occasionally post updates on social media, BUT the absolute-best ports of call for following me & getting the most up-to-date information on my work are as follows:

Down a Writing Mineshaft

The Pyjama Writer Blog

Engine HouseHi there!

Where I live in Cornwall, England, there are plenty of old mineshafts that you might inadvertently fall down if you don’t watch your step (and they’re not fenced off). Since I haven’t blogged for a loooong time, you might have wondered whether this fate had befallen me.

Well, fortunately, this is not the case. However, there’s a good reason for my absence from the ‘blogosphere’. And whyshall become clear as this post unfolds. So if you want to know the long and the short of my author journey over the past few years, and where things are at today, you’d better get the kettle on (‘cos this does go on a bit!)…

OK, so firstly, in 2017, after about 6 years of writing & self-publishing my own books, I started showing signs of burnout.

Not an unusual phenomenon!

Readers are usually quite unaware just how much…

Campervan Mystery – FREE TODAY

Captain - free cozy mystery

Just in case any of you campervanners out there might enjoy reading some campervan-related fiction, I thought I’d let you know that the first book in my new Campervan Bushman Mystery Series is on Amazon FREE TODAY – so why not pick it up before the promotion expires?

Here’s all the info in case you are totally in the dark on this one (pretty much a copy & paste job from my main blog to save time!)…

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?

As with all the planned books in my Campervan Bushman Mystery Series, Killer Climate has an edge of humour, a sense of adventure and a hint of romance.

I kinda like to describe the star of the series, Scott Chevalier, as a bit like a young Crocodile Dundee, only with a campervan & surfboard.

You can read the full blurb on the Campervan Bushman page on my website, or the Amazon page for the book – link coming up.

BOOK-1-WS-SIZE

WHERE DO I GET IT?

Just click here to pick up the link to an Amazon store in your own country.  It’s available till midnight (Pacific Time).

BOOK 0 - PREQUEL - FEB 2016 - JPG

GET THE SERIES PREQUEL – FREE!

If you think Killer Climate and the Campervan Bushman series might be for you, then why not download the series prequel, WIPEOUT, for free by joining other eager readers on my hassle-free New Releases mailing list?  Just click here to get started.  Easy peasy!

Remember to SHARE the good news on your FAVOURITE social network!

Hope you enjoy the read!

A Campervan Mystery Series – Launching Soon!

READY-STEADY-MYSTERY-LAUNCH

I might not be busy writing blogs for the Campervan Capers site these days, but I’ve been well & truly occupied writing, editing and getting my latest book ready for release on Amazon in a couple of days…

And, guess what!  The book I’ll be launching this Sunday (6th December) features a main character who drives a campervan!  In fact, his campervan lifestyle is one of the things which led my ‘hero’, Aussie Scott Chevalier, into hosting a British TV show called The Campervan Bushman.

If this sounds like something that might tickle your fancy, why not click here to check out today’s post on The Pyjama Writer Blog to find out more?

See you there!

Dirty Little SECRETS & Website HIJACKINGS

Finally! A news update… and one with a difference!

The Pyjama Writer Blog

The Pyjama Writer website

If you’re a follower of what goes on in my little writing world, you may have noticed over the past few months that my website & blog appear to have been hijacked. Yep, the old Foley’s Forum header has definitely disappeared – and in its place is the name of some strange persona called The Pyjama Writer. So what the heck’s been going on here?

Well, as the new year rolled in, I began toying with the idea of updating my website name to one I’ve been using in jest for quite some time at home: The Pyjama Writer.

So, where does this name originate? Does it come from an unquenchable thirst for writing about comfy night-wear? Err… no! It’s, well, because… I just love to do my writing… wearing… yes, PYJAMAS!

P-H-E-W!  I’ve finally fessed up!

Some might think of writing as a noble art, an…
