Sorry this website is on hold at the moment. I had planned to have interviews with local writers, publicise local writing events and also work from a children’s writing club, but that’s stopped for now because of the pandemic. Hope to resurface before too long.


About me

Most my career has been in newspaper journalism, but I’ve also been doing creative writing since graduating in 2019 with an MA in the subject. I studied at Manchester Metropolitan University — an excellent online course, and perfect for someone like me in rural Somerset.

Since then, I completely redrafted the book I wrote for my degree, with the help of a Curtis Brown Creative short course, Edit & Pitch Your Novel. Incredibly useful.  

I'm currently redrafting and revising a second book, Boy of Seaweed, Girl of Glass, an historic novel about a 14-year-old girl in 1830s Bristol who longs to become a glassmaker. The research into industries of the time, and how people lived, has been fascinating.

Thanks for visiting my website.
