Weigh-in time!

We are more than half way through November and I have not written a blog post. Life goes on as usual: Mondays and Tuesdays I teach dance. W...

About Me

My photo
I am a writer, editor, reviewer and dance teacher based in Perth, Western Australia. You might enjoy my books - The Dagger of Dresnia, the first book of the Talismans Trilogy, is available at all good online book shops. Book two, The Cloak of Challiver, will be available again shortly. Book three, The Seer of Syland, is in preparation. I trained in piano and singing at the NSW Conservatorium of Music. I also trained in dance (Scully-Borovansky, WAAPA) and drama (NIDA). Since 1987 I have been writing reviews of performances in all genres for a variety of publications, including Music Maker, ArtsWest, Dance Australia, The Australian and others. Now semi-retired, I still write occasionally for the ArtsHub website, and I still teach dance at Trinity School for Seniors, an outreach program of the Uniting Church in Perth.

My books

The first novel of my trilogy, The Talismans, is available as an e-book from Smashwords, Amazon and other online sellers. I do have paperbacks of The Dagger of Dresnia at the low price of $AU25 including postage within Australia. I also have a short story, 'La Belle Dame', in print - see Mythic Resonance below. Book two of the trilogy, The Cloak of Challiver, will be available again shortly. The best way to contact me is via Facebook!

Buy The Talismans

The first two books of The Talismans trilogy were published by Satalyte Publications, which, sadly, has gone out of business. Book one, The Dagger of Dresnia, is up on the usual bookselling web sites as an e-book, and I have a few hard copies to sell to those who prefer Real Paper. Book Two, The Cloak of Challiver, will be available soon. The easiest way to contact me is via Facebook.

Cool Names from long ago

Further to the last post, it must be admitted that some people don't need anagrams to be amusing. Over at Edward II: Cool Names Of The Early Fourteenth Century, Alianore has posted some gems from her historical period of interest. As historical novellist Susan Higginbotham says in a comment, Adam le Fuckere and Jordan le Cok so badly need to be the heroes of a medieval erotic novel...

Hie thee to yon blog and have a giggle.

Thanks for the mention, Satima! You couldn't make up those names, could you...? :-)

Satima Flavell said...

You certainly couldn't, and you'd probably be unpublishable outside porn if you did:-)I always enjoy your blog but I don't usually expect to be ROTFL after reading it. What a hoot!

Marilyn Z. Tomlins said...

Satima --

How are these for anagrams for Marilyn Tomlins? There were 10866 listed, by the way. Marilyn Z Tomlins was though rejected as too long.

Satima Flavell said...

Extraordinary!:-)A nominal slim try netted 10,866 results!

Jo said...

Haven't time to read Alianore's blog today, but I will hie me there withing a day or two.

Marilyn Z. Tomlins said...

Satima -- nominal slim try indeed ...

Should we see a "sign" in that?

Marilyn

Satima Flavell said...

Well, I've pretty given up trying to be slim so any moves in that direction tend to have but a slender chance of succeeding:-) How about you?

Alianore's blog is super if you like history. She is very knowledgeable on the life and times of King Edward II and has links to several other noteworthy history blogs, too.

I went to school with a guy named Greg Shitless. He did change his name, later

Satima Flavell said...

As one would:-) It's a wonder his parents hadn't already changed it! Or his grandparents. Or his great great great great great great etc grandparents....
