Who am I?

The person who has known me longest – my best friend since school, described me as quiet and slow-moving. Which I think is fair enough!

Outside of work I love yoga, swimming, and looking after my allotment!

Why do I teach?

Basically I allow my students to teach me. Always more enlightening.

Three words to sum up my teaching style? Thorough, attentive, and reliable!

Words of wisdom

Be patient: becoming the kind of writer you want to be takes time and it can take even longer for the publishing world to get round to your point of view!
