About This Author

Born in 1957 educated in Devon and later at Oxford, I began a career in education, teaching sciences in schools in Surrey. I am now writing full-time and involved in environmental projects along with various creative projects in Kent. I have a love of theatre and film and have been writing scripts and plays for many years but find that the book writing enables me to lock up ideas in some copyrighted form that can be shared. Like most creatives I earn very little from books, at least with FeedAread the work is out there in some tangible form and not too expensive. I have been supported by the Arts council on writing for film and also for my first publication that is currently with New Generation Publishing, called Corporate Bodies. I aim to write a mystery murder and complete my science fiction series before I perhaps take up some other occupation. Writing is a time consuming passion, but life is short and I might like to spend some time not writing anything at all, save trees, and probably make room for the mountains of books already in existence that no one reads. It is not a recommended life choice being a writer. In fact writing is not a life choice at all. But reading can be fun. I would also recommend growing plants and being outside.The head can be quite a daunting residency, always in need of a good spring clean!
