Few Earth humans have ventured over to the planet’s local astral satellite, locally referred to as The Moon.

Here’s a list of those who have paid a visit to the Earth’s companion:

Who Walked on the Moon?

Who Orbited the Moon?

Does anything obvious stand out from the lists above?

In Earth 101 – Time to Run, our protagonist, Jayne, orbits the Moon. So naturally, there is the offer to venture down to the surface. But having just discovered her new boyfriend is an alien from forever lightyears away, Jayne is somewhat reluctant and still coming to terms with the impossible.

When I presented an early draft of the story to my editor, she was pretty shocked to learn no female astronauts (or cosmonauts) had popped across to The Moon.

2024 could see an amendment to this fact.

But, in the meantime, Jayne holds first place for that achievement.



It is with great pleasure I can confirm the audiobook for my debut novel, Earth 101 – Time to run is available on Audible, iTunes and Amazon.

The dramatization by the brilliant Jessica Duncan is brilliant and adds the final flourish to a wonderful project.

The next steps will be to organise an audiobook blog tour, which I am quite excited about.

It’s getting close to the audiobook release!

The official launch date is Friday 27th August (2021), and I’m looking forward to that.

The audiobook is undoubtedly the cherry and icing on the cake.

It’s been an effortless process using the Findaway Voices platform,
working with the excellent Jessica Duncan.

Finding a suitable actor for Jayne’s voice was challenging.

But Jessica went far beyond the call and has delivered such a lovely dramatization of Earth 101.

I can’t wait to share this brilliant actor with the audiobook community.

The next step is to approach the audiobook blogging community and see who is interested in listening to the impressive 14-hour story and chatting about it.

So, my water-only fast is going rather well.

I had a feeling it would, but I didn’t expect it to be this easy.

I can certainly feel how active and clear my thoughts and brain are.

Yesterday saw me not needing much sleep at night. Hence I was awake for around twenty hours. I finally went to bed at 6:30 AM this morning. And I had a great sleep until noon.

I’m not hungry even slightly. It’s weird to open my fridge and only see bottles of sparkling water. No food at all in evidence. Hence, no temptation.

It will seem odd when Monday dawns, and that is the seventh day of the water fast. Could I take it further? Most likely, yes, but I won’t.

I’ll be following a very low-calorie diet from then on – around 500 calories per day – so I want to get into that zone of weight loss and build on this fast with a keto-type of diet.

I intend to do the water fast again. Possibly two more times before I stop dieting.

But for now, I’m looking forward to reaching day five and the weekend.

I’ll see what stage my new home build is at tomorrow, Saturday.

Very exciting.

I’ve decided I need a physical reset after more than a year of (COVID) lockdown eating and divulgence.

My body feels out of synch; I feel out of synch.

Hence, I’ve been investigating extreme fasting as detox, and I’m going all in.

This means not a single morsel of food for seven days. After that, I’ll allow myself water, obviously or else there will be some severe organ failure
consequences. I’ll also let myself cups of tea throughout the day. I have the smallest amount of milk in my tea and only a single tablet sweetener.

So, I should be good to go there.

I’ve completed keto diets in the past, where I’ve lived on between 500 and 600 calories per day. Hence, I’m used to controlled starvation methods.

I commenced this plan yesterday, 3rd July 2021, and as standard, day one was easy. So, day two rolls on, and I’m not expecting anything out of
the ordinary. However, I often fast for the first few days of a keto diet, so I reckon the real test will kick in from day four.

Once I complete the fast, I will slip into the very-low-calorie keto diet and purge the extra pounds I have gained over many months. But, of course, the
diet I follow gives me all the vitamins and such I need, so no concern.

I’m pretty excited about this experiment. It’s a first for me to fast for a whole week.

Let’s see how it goes.
