“The white-out descended blanketing any evidence that remained, leaving Armand bewildered and uncertain as to what he had witnessed. Now the panic was building, reawakening the haunting memory that never melted in his heart. He was back in another country, helpless as a broken body struggled for life and the blood on his hands spilled on trampled snow.”

That’s the cliff-hanger at the end of the Prologue to Spiral of Hooves, my first published novel. This mystery set against the equestrian world of eventing was released as an e-book on Monday December 9th 2013.

Writings Wings is my ‘word-smithing’ home online. It is a place to keep friends and followers informed about my journeys in the World of Writing & Scribbling as I try to evolve from a fledgling fiction writer into someone that can offer words of import or entertainment or even amusement.

On the Blog, I will post my more instant musings as I perfect my writing and learn the art of editing the words into something that you would like to read.  For details on my writing you can also visit other pages on this site like Work In Progress which gives a few clues to the novels and other creations that are finding their own wings through my scribblings. My shorts have evolved into Gossamer Flames and a post-apocalyptic world in progress.

  1. Hello, I wanted to check out your site as I saw it on the challenge and I am so glad I did as I found a lot of things I enjoyed

  2. I love reviewing books and finding new Authors and so since I am new to your site I will be checking out your book soon. Thanks for sharing some of it with us.

  3. I like the prologue and first chapter of your novel. It’s well-written, interesting, and moves along at a fast pace. Looking forward to reading it over the summer.

  4. Hi Roland 🙂
    I came to your blog from a post on “Helping Writers Become Authors” I was intrigued by your myth-inspired collection of shorts. I’ll see you around. I want to explore your blog 🙂

    • Thanks Sarah. Your comment was the inspiration that I needed this morning – to write more of my collection, which is in the myth tradition although bordering on science fiction. Commented on your site as loved post about spirals… and the jewellery.

      • Oh, how come that theme? 🙂

        I’m trying the Roaring Twenteis, of course. And I’m already reserching for the posts… but honestly, at the moment I’m a bit overwhelmed. Looks like there’s so much to do and so little time 😦

      • War of 1812 is one of the threads in the draft novel that I’m working on. One of plotlines and POVs is a Memoir from the war between US and Britain/Canada. Aiming for brief posts and no more.

  5. Hi…I see you are doing War of 1812. Love history. A-Z gets kind of crazy so will try to catch what I can. I’m doing Inventions by Women. Your book sounds interesting. I like a good mystery and I’m a Seabiscuit fan, so anything about horses is a natural draw 🙂

    • Agree that A to Z gets kind of crazy. I try to catch up afterwards as much as during. Also add an index to my post from one of permanent pages – Gossamer Flames last year and Snowdon Shadows this year.

  6. Visiting you in these closing days of the #Challenge. Always happy to find another writer. If you have time or energy at this point in April, come and see what I’ve been up to. Love finding good blogs like yours. Thanks. Like so much what I have found that I will be following. Looking forward to that already.
