TV Review: 13 Reasons Why

I recently watched 13 Reasons Why on Netflix and I feel utterly compelled to write about it. 13 Reasons Why is the story of Hannah Baker, a teenager who commits suicide and leaves behind a series of tapes listing the reasons why she made the decision that she did.  It is told from the perspective…

Eye Can See (A Dodgy Pun)

Several weeks ago I suffered a rather unfortunate injury while playing dodgeball. Normally I wouldn’t complain about being hurt playing sports, because that’s simply a risk you take whenever you play sports and I’ve collected a wonderful trophy case of sports injuries: Carted off the BMX track by an ambulance crew in C-Spine precautions; Dislocated…

Roxy Lives Again

I am breathing new life into her. I did something I swore I wouldn’t do until I was done with her (as I am a supreme perfectionist) and sent her off for a test read! My test reader told me that she kept picturing Wentworth Miller in her head for one of the characters. I…

My Gripe with Crime Shows

I enjoy crime shows. It’s somewhat of a guilty pleasure. Who doesn’t enjoy Nathan Fillion as Richard Castle on, well, Castle, making snide remarks and terrible jokes and being generally a rather poor substitute for Captain Malcolm Reynolds? I’ll happily forgive the premise that a writer accompanying police on investigations, busts and interrogations is slightly…
