Welcome to my blog!
I am a writer and artist living in North Yorkshire with my family and our toy poodle, Doug. Having a dog helps me get out and about on a daily basis and appreciate the beautiful Yorkshire Dales in all its seasonal glory.
As well as co-founding Richmondshire Writers in 2012, I currently teach a range of subjects from creative writing to Sociology to English Literature. I have a youth work and research background, delivering research projects for both statutory and voluntary agencies mainly on issues affecting young people. However, I have also written an e-learning course on business writing for the council.
My first degree is in Sociology, I went onto complete at Masters in Criminological Research and I completed a PGCE in 2005.
I hope you like my poems and art work. You can contact me here
