I just about qualify for millennial status, but I’m the tail end of whatever came before that. I wander from one failed blog to another. This one is named after a fictional town in a film called ‘The Strange Love of Martha Ivers’ starring Barbara Stanwyck and introducing a young Kurt Russel. Stanwyck sure could act, but she was also a Republican. This isn’t her best film regardless, but in it, she plays someone with my surname, before I got married (don’t judge me, my maiden name was also given to me by a man).

So yeah, I chose the name because I’m a narcissist. I also like to pretend the song ‘Funkytown’ by Lipps Inc is actually ‘Iverstown’.

So this is a personal blog about stuff. Stuff will include films, dogs, dyspraxia, mental health, creative and life writing plus other temporary obsessions. Or I might never post here again.
