About me

Occupation Author, creative writing teacher and mentor.
Location Downley, Bucks
Introduction I am the bestselling author of 16 novels and 2 writing handbooks. I have written many short stories and features, and was a regular feature writer with Writers Forum. I have written 2 plays and been involved in the production of a documentary which grew out of my novel, Canopy of Silence. I teach creative writing, and mentor aspiring authors, and love it when I'm invited to talk. I like playtime most of all. I am working on my 14th novel and organising a charity Words for the Wounded to raise money via writing prizes for the rehabilitation of wounded troops. I am doing this with my lovely W4W team, authors Tracy Baines, (aka Francine Lee) Penelope Deacon and Matt Pain, extreme sportsman.
Interests reading, theatre, Tai Chi and Pilates with gusto but not much expertise, Aquafit, snorkelling, travelling, singing with Rock Choir, again with gusto and NO expertise.
