I am originally from Lancashire, England and started writing at a young age. Yes, this young, when butter wouldn’t melt!
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” the teacher would ask.
This was about the tenth thing I landed on, like most of us, although this was the one that stuck. The writing bug has always been there, although it took a while for me to do anything about it. As always life got in the way.
My biggest passions after writing (and my husband and cats!) are food and travel – anyone who has seen my Instagram will know this. However, I have no desire to write about either. I’ve always had an over-active imagination and a sense of adventure. However, I have a lower boredom threshold than most children!
They say write about what you know, which is not advice to ignore. Although, does anyone know who actually said this? I write about things that happen in life – laughter, love, drama, death and everything in the middle.
They say laughter is the best medicine – I don’t know who said that either! Well, whoever it is I agree. So my writing has to have humour in it. Everything from dark comedy to highly embellished satire. To me, it’s laughter that keeps me sane.
By day I’m a Learning and Development professional in the City of London. I love my job as I get to be creative and interact with people every day – always great for new character inspiration!
By night I am husband to Tom and cat dad to Oliver and Phoebe at our home in Essex.
In any spare time I have left, I write. You can find more information about my books here.
