I am married with grown-up children and grandchildren. I was born in Liverpool and now live in West Sussex. In February 2019, I graduated with an MA in Creative Writing (Merit) via the University of Brighton. I am a novelist, poet, and short story writer. When I’m not working on my own writing, I enjoy sharing my knowledge and act as a mentor to fellow writers and I am an online poetry tutor with Writers’ Bureau.
In 2017 I was Poet in Residence at a local Victorian Park in Crawley and my poetry was exhibited throughout the park. In 2019 my poetry was on display at Crawley Museum.
My poetry pamphlet, ‘Taxus Baccata’ will be published with Hedgehog Poetry Press in Spring 2020. I have had many poems and short stories published in various literary magazines and anthologies.
My debut novel, House of Grace, A Family Saga, Book 1 in the House of Grace trilogy is set in the 1950s and 1960s. Book 2, The Coal Miner’s Son, was published 9th March 2020. ‘The Granville Legacy’, a work in progress is the third and final book in the trilogy but not in the series. There will be more.
