About me

After working in Welfare Rights and Housing for twenty-five years in Hampshire and then Staffordshire, I took voluntary redundancy from Stoke-on-Trent Citizens’ Advice Bureau in the spring of 2011 to set up as a self-employed gardener. And there I was, fork, trowel and spade at the ready, when the ‘summer’ of 2012 came along…

‘Plan A’ was effectively rained off and, missing my colleagues, clients and the world of welfare rights advice, I started to write about it. A few months later I had the first draft of ‘Severe Discomfort’ and when the final version remained utterly resistable to several literary agents, I found ‘Completelynovel’ online, and self-published this and the sequel, ‘Continual Supervision’.

I rejoined Stoke-on-Trent CAB at the beginning of August 2013 in a training role, and I’m now donating any profits from sales of ‘Severe Discomfort’ and ‘Continual Supervision’ to this organisation, as right now we need all the help we can get.

I blog about writing, and why I write what I write, at: http://benebook.blogspot.co.uk/
