This is me!
I always have been a storyteller and writer, and now I am a full-time writer!
I was born and brought up in Cambridge; we were a ‘town’ family, not ‘gown.’ When I say I come from Cambridge, many think I must be posh or superior… no, my parents were ordinary working people, as were their parents before them! I spent most of my life in Manchester, a great city which I love to return to. I now I live in a small Somerset village; we are about 300 yards from the sea, and about three inches above it!
As a teacher I met many amazing young people, and had many dedicated and brilliant colleagues. I taught in Manchester, Oldham, and Weston-super-Mare; I taught English as a second language, and then I taught in pupil referral units, for young people not in school … I loved it… but now I work full time as a writer.
WordPress and me
In this blog I write about writing, how I do it, why I do it and what I do; it is for my readers to find out more about me and my work… But as I’m a writer, I write about other things too… so I write about what I enjoy doing, reading, cooking and food, pubs and pints, places, music and what I listen to and bands I go to see…
Writing is my passion and that is what I do every day, from the moment I get up till late at night! I have always written and have nine novels, six of which are published as e-books on Amazon. I’ve also written three novels to encourage reluctant readers and am working on two new novels. My first ever sequel, to follow my latest published novel, Radwinter, is Magick, and will be published as an e-book on October 14th 2014.
