Welcome to my friends, both old and new

Reader, teacher, music-lover. Occasional writer. Scared of penguins, zombies and Richard Gere's nipples.


Hello to you all, and thank you for visiting. I gain a huge amount of pleasure from writing and even more from knowing that my stories are enjoyed by people of all ages, from all walks of life. Interacting with you and hearing your opinions on my work is a fantastic aspect of what I do, so any comments, reviews or questions are always welcome. There are lots of opportunities for you to do just that here, on my website, or on my other pages (see the links below).


Writing (and publishing) is the scariest adventure I have ever embarked upon, but one that I am finding rewarding beyond anything I could have imagined when I sat down to scribble an idea in a beautiful notebook, in the summer of 2012. What started as a hobby has snowballed into something huge, that I never would have predicted. I can't wait to see what happens next, and I hope that you will join me and share the journey.
