About this blog

This is a window into the weird world of Anglicanism, as experienced on a Cathedral Close. Has anything much happened since Trollope's Barchester Chronicles? You will still see the 'canon in residence' hurrying across to choral Evensong, robes flapping, as the late bell chimes. But look carefully and you will notice he is checking the football score on his iPhone as he runs. This is also a writer's blog. It charts the agony and ecstasy of the novelist's life. And it's a fighter's blog. It charts the agony and ecstasy of the judo mat. Well, the agony, anyway.

  1. Dear Author,
    I am trying hard to be patient - honestly, I am - but I really, really want to know how things were left between Jane and the archdeacon when they met. Next week... please....?
    #gradually warming to the idea ;-)

    1. Yes, it's probably time to move that plot line on a bit.
