A small selection of blogs I have enjoyed over the last few days and I hope you will head over to enjoy them in full.. thanks Sally.
Last Friday I enjoyed reading the latest Q&A from D.G. Kaye (Debby Gies) and her guest M.J. Mallon talking about her latest release, a poetry collection Lockdown Innit.
Q & A with D.G. Kaye – Featuring MJ Mallon and #NewRelease – Lockdown Innit
Welcome to my March edition of Q & A time where today I’m featuring another Fey Sister, friend and author, Marjorie Mallon. I recently published a review for Marje’s lastest release – Lockdown Innit, and today Marje will share her journey to writing her latest book in prose and poetry here in her second book she felt compelled to write about how Lockdown has affected her personal world.
My alter ego is MJ – Mary Jane from Spiderman. I love superheros!
On the 17th of November I was born, in Lion City: Singapore, (a passionate Scorpio, with the Chinese Zodiac sign a lucky rabbit.) My early childhood was spent in Hong Kong. During my teen years, my parents returned to my father’s birthplace, Edinburgh, where I spent many happy years. As a teenager, I travelled to many far-flung destinations. It’s rumoured that I now live in the Venice of Cambridge, with my six-foot hunk of a Rock God husband. My two enchanted daughters have almost flown the nest, but often return with a cheery smile to greet me.
During the day, I work in an international sixth form with students from around the world. I’m the meet and greet lady who welcomes them to their new college and issues them with late slips when they don’t get to their lessons on time!
I write YA fantasy, paranormal, horror/supernatural short stories, flash fiction and short form poetry. More recently, I have produced and compiled an anthology/compilation set during the early stages of COVID-19 entitled This Is Lockdown. Following on from this, in February 2021 I will be releasing Lockdown Innit, poems about absurdity which will be available in kindle and shortly after release in paperback.
I’ve been blogging for many moons at my blog home Kyrosmagica, which means Crystal Magic. From time to time I write articles celebrating the spiritual realm, inspiration and my love of nature, crystals and all things magical, mystical, and mysterious.
My eclectic blog shares my three loves: reading, writing, and creativity. I adore reading and have written over 150 reviews on my blog: https://mjmallon.com/2015/09/28/a-z-of-my-book-reviews/

Welcome to this week’s blog hop. Today the topic is: You’re going on a road trip: where are you headed? With whom? What are your snacks? Music? Plans?
As soon as the boys were old enough and we could afford it, we would always have one holiday abroad every year. We visited many countries, including Greece, France, Jersey, Canada, Italy, Spain and the Balearic Islands, and it gave us and our sons some nice memories. When they left home Sam and I went on various cruises, enjoying such delights as the Rio carnival, Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and trips to the Caribbean islands.
These days neither of us want to travel any more and prefer to stay in the UK. For us there is no place like home. We’re looking forward to our first road trip of 2021 on April 14th (pandemic permitting), when we pack up for a week and head 200 miles south to drain up our caravan on the Isle of Wight ready for the summer. Sam will give the van a jet wash, I’ll do some spring cleaning inside, and then we’ll spend the rest of the time walking or cycling along our favourite tracks.
