Have just logged on to find I've reached an incredible fifty thousand reads and would like to say a big thank you to each and every one of you who have contributed to this fantastic achievement! I am absolutely thrilled.

Unfortunately I haven't posted much over the past few weeks due to an ongoing neck problem. I've come to realise the significance of the phrase 'it's a pain in the neck', which writing aggravates. Please everyone, make sure your screen and keyboard do not place a strain on your neck. Take advice, it's so easy to become complacent and,  believe me, the consequence of poor posture while writing for prolonged periods of time can be excruciating and debilitating!

My Osteopath was horrified to learn I had been using a lap top (literally) for writing. They are the worst culprits for work related health problems.

You have been warned... take advice, take action and be mindful!  We are not invincible!

Happy and safe writing everone!

Profile Information

I first began by writing stories for the entertainment of my two young grandsons, I also received commissions for poems to celebrate christenings, or to pay tribute to lost loved ones. But my greatest achievement so far, is the publication of my debut Novel, The Contest, a quirky, tongue-in-cheek version of a modern day fairy tale, set in the Kingdom of Cyberia. The idea was hatched after taking the boys to a pantomime. I had so much fun writing a fairy-tale that would resonate in today’s world of technology, reality TV, and celebrity culture. It is aimed at a young adult audience (or the young at heart).

I couldn’t imagine life without my lap-top. Writing gives me so much pleasure, it is part of who I am. I am an advocate of post-it notes for scribbling down ideas before they float off into the ether, usually just as I'm dropping off to sleep at night. It's deciphering them in the morning that is the challenge!

The Legacy, sequel The Contest, is finally complete after a zillion edits! All comments gratefully received.
