I've written as long as I can remember, and have snippets of things that I wrote as a child, as a teenager, in my twenties, thirties and forties. Reading it now is like catching a glimpse of all the people I have been.
By profession I am a teacher and a pastoral leader at a school in Bristol, a job which I love too much to leave, although it's killing me. I work with teenagers, the most interesting and stimulating people in the world with whom to spend a work-day. At home I have two of my own mostly lovely teenagers, with whom I have great laughs and the occasional explosive row. My son is starting to write; I have no idea what he writes because he doesn't want me to know, and that's absolutely fine. My daughter is studying English at A level and expresses herself beautifully.
I am represented by Juliet Burton.
I just wrote my bucket list, and one of the things I put on it was that I needed to get back to doing the things I love, like writing, dancing, singing and being joyful.
This is step one.
