I am a widely published short story writer, as well as a novelist and journalist. I have a particular and developing interest in writing for wellbeing and hold an MSc in creative writing for therapeutic purposes. I have facilitated workshops in writing for wellbeing and self-discovery, with an emphasis on the enjoyment and sense of personal development that comes from creative writing. I am a member of Lapidus, the RNA and the Society of Authors.
I facilitate a fortnightly creative writing class for the mental health charity Mind.
I have facilitated writing activities with day patients in two local hospices.
I plan and implement workshops tailored to specific groups and settings, as well as working individually with participants. I am also a registered tutor with the WEA.
I have had over 1,000 short stories published in magazines in the UK, Australia, Ireland and South Africa, and two novels published, Hush Hush and A Tale of Two Sisters, both reissued online by a new publisher.
I won the Short Story Radio Romance Award 2011 for Love & Life in the Park.
As a journalist, I have published hundreds of articles and opinion pieces.
