They told me that you have to call yourself a writer to be a writer and to believe. I think that's true, even if it is just something you do for yourself.

I have always written and read, travelled and moved, taught and learnt.

I studied English at Liverpool Univeristy and then an MA in Literary Linguistics at Birmingham University. I taught Drama at my old high school before coming to South America almost four and a half years ago. I have been living permanently in Buenos Aires for two and a half years, teaching English, learning Spanish, falling in love and living every last drop I possibly can.

I am currently on a month off work to focus on finishing a novel which was born in my mind as I travelled through Patagonia. It's about happiness. I love poetry and stories and writing down things I notice. There is always a pen and paper handy.

PS. Be sure that I'll find you. No need to ask.
