I’m an actor and director at a small theatre a few miles from where I live in the county of Yorkshire in the UK. I did work as a project and business change manager – very pressured and very demanding – but I managed to escape and now I write books.

I’ve always loved stories and story telling so it seemed a natural progression, to me, to try my hand at writing and I started with short stories. My first published story was in an anthology, which was put together by the magazine ‘Ireland’s Own’ in 2011.

I particularly enjoy the challenge of plotting and planning different genres of work. My short stories vary between contemporary romance, memoir, mystery and historical. I also write comic flash-fiction and have drafted two one-act plays that h

Narnia would be good but I'm afraid I would want to be the White Witch so that i could wear those gorgeous clothes that Tilda Swinton wore in the film! And yes I know, that's very shallow! The only other place I would want to go would be Hundred Acre Wood. As a child, I loved the stories of Winnie the Pooh and Eeyore and playing Pooh-sticks. If I was there I would totally embrace my inner child and have nothing but fun! (less)

Hi there, nice to e-meet you and thanks for getting in touch.

As for Yorkshire - I could not agree more. It's a beautiful county, especially the moors and the northern coastal area. I wouldn't say I was a rebel but I always question injustice. Am I exhausting? Hmm, interesting question! I suppose my answer is - also straight from the hip - I sincerely hope not, but I know I can be testing, especially when things are not going as I had planned or hoped.

As for travelling being exhausting, in some respects I agree with you. But mostly, I find travelling an everlasting adventure. It's such a great opportunity to meet new people, to see different 'worlds' and to value new experiences no matter how insignificant they may appear. I have no plans to stop travelling in France, or anywhere else for that matter. (less)

A fascinating little read about France, the customs, the culture and the people. An ephemera of information that is very wittily presented. I couldn't put it down.
