I was born and grew up in Lancashire. Now I live in South London, near Streatham Common. In between, I have lived in North London, Birmingham, Bristol and Solihull.
For many years I was a literature tutor in the Lifelong Learning Department at Warwick University where I specialised in teaching 20th century and contemporary novels, both on the university campus and in outreach locations around the area. For me this was a dream job. Studying novels with groups of interested readers – what could be better?
When I moved to London in 2006 I began writing seriously. I have been on courses at Birkbeck and the Faber Academy. To date, I have written two novels – The End of the Road and Clad in Armour of Radiant White – both of which are available on Amazon, on Kindle and in paperback.
I am now in the planning stage of novel number three.
