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.

As writers it wouldn't be very professional if we couldn't even send a simple message correctly. Sometimes a sticky keyboard can be a pain but it is good to have a way to rectify things if we have typed a little too fast and click send after its too late. I haven't got any further improvement to recommend to this feature at the moment. If I think of any I will let you know. :-D (more) and received+3

I have had a review from an American book blogger and she too liked it. Mystery, Deceit and a School Inspector can be obtained in the US now so hopefully I can bring another bit of Britain to America! Bryony (more) and bagged+3

I'll see if I can upgrade it this week so you can edit your sent messages. I'm afraid however that there will be no way to edit the email notification that the person receives.

If we post a message to someone outside of a discussion and then notice typo's etc can we edit the message to clean it up, so to speak. (I ended up inserting 2x how in an earlier message to Shea Lovekin somehow) I know we should be less hasty but sometimes you click before really totally checking (human nature!). I know this feature existed on the previous site format so has it gone or is it work in progress? Best Regards, Bryony. (more) and gained+3

Seth recently reviewed the book so it would be interesting to see if opinions differ. Best Regards, Bryony (more) and gained+3
