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.

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 earned+3

Life has been busy! I just wanted to let you know that my young adult novel OTOLI is in 'The People's Book Prize' Spring 2012 collection for the children's category as my publisher entered it last week. You can find the TPBP web page for the book at the web link here http://bit.ly/xLsAUW . Please do share with anyone you feel may be interested in taking a look. It will all help votes for the book (I hope!). Other than that I hope writing and reading is going well for all associated with CN in some way. PS, second YA book 'The Assembly Room' is currently in with my publisher. Should hear the verdict soon! (more) and received+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.
