First of all, a few words to introduce myself:
I was born and raised in Bristol, England, and spent my adult life in business, mostly marketing cars. My career was successful and I eventually owned the largest Saab specialist in the world.
An unexpected event in my personal life led me to leave Bristol and live on a mountainside in the lovely South Wales Valleys. I embarked on a six-year degree course at Bristol University, gaining a BA (Hons) Degree in English Literature and Community Engagement. I also attended creative writing classes in Cardiff.
My interest in English literature flourished and I have won several prizes for my short stories. My first book, Twenty Short Stories - Settling a Score, reached No. 1 in the Short Stories Best Sellers and is still available, as is the second anthology, Twenty One Short Stories.
I like to be involved in community projects and since moving to Wales, have spent a couple of years helping out in a Wolf Rescue Centre. Bottle feeding wolf cubs and having my face licked by a large beta male were unbelievable experiences. I also spent a few years volunteering for a charity that helps people towards recovery from drug and alcohol abuse. That experience feeds into my latest novel, Words on Paper.
I still live on that mountain in Wales with my wonderful partner, Mari, and our two rescue dogs, Wavy and Wenna.
Best wishes and happy reading!
