Remembering Cliff Simon

When I planned to have a feature with Cliff Simon on my blog, I had hoped it would have been as the result of an interview with the actor. So, to be sitting here now, writing an article that honours his life and memory instead, is both unbelievable and heart-breaking. Last week, the Stargate fandom…

Lockdown Loves: YVR Screen Scene

As I previously mentioned here, this new mini series of blog posts will be looking at my ‘Lockdown Loves’. In other words, the podcasts, the TV shows, the books… just the things that saw me through most of 2020 when I was in lockdown. First on my list is the YVR Screen Scene podcast, hosted by Sabrina Furminger.…

Jac is Back…

Well, here we are. We’ve reached February and already my plan to blog at least once a month in 2021 has not happened. I had every intention of writing something, but between finding the energy, a busy work schedule, and my MacBook deciding to break again, it became more of a ‘best-laid plans’ scenario… There…

Nailed It!

A French manicure; a bright, bold colour; some funky nail art… I love treating my nails to a nice polish and treatment every so often. Well, more often than not, to be honest, but there is something about the whole experience that makes me feel better. Pre-Covid, when normal times allowed, I also enjoyed being…

An Interview With Suanne Braun

A part of me still can’t believe that this interview took place and I was able to speak to the wonderfully talented actor, Suanne Braun. Suanne is known to many within the Stargate SG-1 fandom for her portrayal of the Goa’uld queen, Hathor. She is also a star of the stage and screen, having enjoyed a hugely…

At Home With… Irishelle Crafts

For many, lockdown has provided an opportunity to discover a new hobby; whether it has been gardening, baking, or those seemingly never-ending DIY projects around the home. For others, however, it has provided the chance to spend a little more time on their favourite pastimes… and this has proved to be just the case for Irishelle Crafts. Based in the…

Unwritten Words

Quite often, a lot of my writing work goes unnoticed or uncredited. It can be a result of client confidentiality, or being a ghost writer, or simply because people don’t know I’m the author behind the piece. So, it’s always a nice feeling when someone does notice my work, and especially when it is the person who…

Lockdown: Week 3

I’m a little late posting my retrospective of Week 3 in lockdown, but it’s been a challenge to find the energy or enthusiasm to write lately. With last weekend being Easter, we usually like to go to the beach or somewhere along the coast for the day, if the weather is going to be good…

Lockdown: Week 2

I can’t decide if the days went in quickly or slowly this past week, but for now I’m still able to tell what day of the week it is, so there’s that. Even though I knew to expect a letter from the Prime Minister regarding the virus, it was still really odd when the letter…
