For me, writing has been a way of life, whether that’s doing it myself, reading other people’s, or speaking someone else’s words on stage.
Over the years I’ve written stories for children and stories for young adults, with a sprinkling of plays and non-fiction.
Not long ago I completed an MA in Creative Writing, which was fantastic for getting honest feedback and direction. My big ambition was to write a novel for ‘grown-ups’ – a story that had been in my head for a long time. Looking for Alex was the result, and it feels great to have finished it and to let it go out into the world!
Aside from all this I have two grown-up sons with my husband, Paul, and have worked in teaching and now in counselling. I’m really looking forward to spending more time indulging my love of writing, and turning those half-formed ideas into more stories.
