I am an Aussie wannabe writer that struggles to actually write. I live rurally with my fur baby and young daughter and husband. It is a happy but busy life. I love reading classics and good best sellers.
Graveyard Smash Playlist Vol. 01
Halloween, otherwise called All Hallows' Eve or All Saints’ Eve is celebrated on October 31. It can be traced back to the ancient Pagan festival of Samhain, where people used to dress in costumes to ward off ghosts. As with most traditions, as time and cultures change and merge, rituals change. Halloween today is a fun festival full of fancy-dress ups, sugar filled jars, and joy. It is no longer about celebrating the dead. It is about celebrating monsters and ghouls and all things spooky. It has nearly been forgotten that Halloween is also the time when the veil between the realms is at its thinnest.
The Demon That Hunts During The Day
Statistics are just numbers right. How about this statistic - suicide is the biggest killer of young Australians, a bigger killer than car accidents (Australian Bureau of Statistics 2014). Statistics are always just a number until that number impacts you and your family. I was lucky not to become just another figure on the page, the sad reality is that there are other women and men out there that will. Some call it the noonday demon, the black dog, the fog, or a hole in the script. I have been hounded by the demon, stalked by the dog, and have fallen into the deepest hole possible in my life. Only now can I see the light, only now I can see that despite being lonely, we are never alone in that battle, we all have our own demons which should be fought arm in arm with our neighbour. This is my story, my battle.

I was only a few weeks pregnant with my first child when the world came to a grinding halt. A novel coronavirus from China was ravaging the world and we all bunkered in place to wait and watch to see what would happen.
