I’ve always enjoyed writing poems, short stories and articles. However to date I’ve not had any published as I lack the confidence to send manuscripts for examination. I enjoy developing characters, plots and scenes however, they mostly live in my computer – maybe because that’s easier for me to avoid the possible pain of rejection.

I recognise the need to take a risk and I know I should just get on with it.

I live in sleepy rural Devon and love the landscape, wildlife and nature all around me.
