‘Writing for me is as important as brushing my teeth. I have to do it every day, every morning, and if for some reason I have something else that occupies me, then I just do not feel settled.’

Welcome to my website.


As you look through the pages you’ll see that much of my working life has revolved around different aspects of publishing. Not only have I worked for a publisher – a fascinating job that took me into all aspects including selling foreign rights, picture research and reading manuscripts – I’ve mainly been a journalist that in due course took me into editing. Most of all I’ve been a writer, something that I have done all my life. I have always prided myself that I have never missed a deadline but do you think I can regularly write a blog? No. The intention is there but I get so involved in other writing I forget!


I hope you find my website interesting but if there is something else you would like to know, then my contact details are at the end.
