About me

Where to begin? I have always enjoyed writing, ever since I was a child and can’t remember a time where I haven’t wanted a book in my hand. I did a degree in English and Drama at Roehampton University and ended up doing a PGCE at the Cambridge University, Homerton College after which I embarked on a career in teaching. I’ve been doing this ever since. I read excessively, all sorts of novels by different authors; my favorites are Ian Rankin, Ruth Rendell and Daphne du Maurier but I’m always finding others. That said, writing is a passion for me and I really enjoy the creative release it can give. “Mystery, Deceit and a School Inspector” was published in 2006 with UK Independent publisher Pneuma Springs (you can read the first few chapters for nothing here on CN). I now also write to appeal to the darker side of the teenage/young adult mind. My second work titled OTOLI for Young Adult readers went through redraft here on CN with the help of readers feedback. This book was published by Pneuma Springs on 28th April 2011. I’m now researching and writing for other projects for both Adult and Young Adult readerships. I look forward to touching base with you all.

The meaning pops up in the book a few times, and it stands for 'on the outside looking in'. It is meant to be the feeling that children (and some adults) get when they are not part of the social groups for whatever reason. I've seen it several times! Incidentally, following feedback from a few places, OTOLI has been revised since it was put up on CN. It is now a few thousand words longer so that it is novel length, and my long suffering characters suffer even more! Jenny gets a bit more of a story, which is interesting (I hope!). I am hoping that OTOLI will be in print in the near-ish future. Pneuma Springs are interested, and it is also with an agent at the moment. Exciting times! Nice to hear from a fellow Suffolk dweller, by the way! (more) and won+3
