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!
Two years ago I was liberated from teaching; I enjoyed it and 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 am free! I had great fun teaching, but the only teaching I do now is a creative writing class.
WordPress and me
This blog is chiefly to discuss 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 I’m a writer and I write about other things too… so I write about what I enjoy doing, reading, cooking and food, pubs and pints, music and what I listen to and bands I go to see…
Writing is my real work and 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 seven novels, five of which are published as e-books on Amazon. I’ve also written three novels to encourage reluctant readers and have two unfinished novels… so plenty of work to do!
