I am married with three grown-up children and live in North Staffordshire. I’ve been writing in some form or another for forty years, working in the early years as a meals-on-wheels driver, quiz setter, driver for Social Services and with the homeless and disadvantaged children, in order to keep up the writing. I now work as a Specialist Skills Tutor at Keele and Staffordshire Universities.
I studied on the MA at Manchester Metropolitan University from 2012-2015 during which time ‘Mission’ was written and I was the recipient of the Michael Schmidt Award for Best Portfolio. I received incredible support from peers and staff alike and I owe so many people for the publication of ‘Mission’.
