About me

I am a teacher at a challenging school. Having packed in a job at a renowned engineering company, I wanted to actually get something from my life by giving knowledge and wisdom to our next generation and hoping to inspire.

I have been writing since I was very young and my first book was swiftly turning into an enormous epic when I decided to stop it and move on. I learnt loads from writing that first book and now my first and second real attempts are taking shape.

I hope to publish my first book later this year with my second following quickly behind.

I'm enjoying the break but as teachers know, no sooner than you get a couple of weeks in we are busy planning and preparing again. The headteacher ordered about 80 books from my publisher and these are held in the school library, I'm not sure if all would be that supportive. The county council are aware of my books too so there may well be other schools in the area that have them. I know one reviewer from a young adult book blog said the book should be used as part of PHSE curriculum so if the powers that be ever take that on board at some point I'll be ecstatic. I can live in hope. Completely Novel is a lovely place for all writers and readers regardless of whether you are self publishing or with a publisher. At the end of the day it's a community of people with like minded interests, writing and reading so it's all good in my book (excuse the pun!). Enjoy the rest of the break and good luck with your writing. Bryony (more) and bagged+3

I bet you're looking forward to summer so that you can start pushing your books a bit more and begin writing a possible fourth? I'm hoping to get lots done over the summer although I imagine that won't happen and before I realise it, it'll all be over. The second person I asked to look through my first novel read it in a couple of days but never gave me feedback, so that's a big aim for the summer. I might just publish it on here as it is and see if anyone is willing to give me a critique. I think you've got the right idea of befriending lots of people although I'm still struggling to keep up with Completely Novel and get everything sorted at school. Here's a question, do you stock your school library with your books? (more) and won+3

Yes a third book (my second YA novel) is in with the publisher at the moment. It has been polished for the last 3 months so I'm hoping the verdict is a good one, I've had some emails back and I think the green light is coming very soon with luck). Hope your writing is going well, not to mention the teaching. Roll on the easter break from a teaching perspective! Best wishes Bryony (more) and bagged+3

It certainly is hard work but then again, 65 days holiday is nothing to be sniffed at. Gives me plenty of time to get writing in. Congratulations on getting your two books published. Is there a third in the pipeline? Paul (more) and gained+3
