About Me

For me creative writing started under the duvet with a scrap bit of paper, a pencil and a torch.

As a child every book I read fuelled my need to write. I easily spent hours filling my diary, thinking about plot lines, creating characters and searching my brain for ways to become the writer I want to be. Twenty or so years later, I have still not achieved what I set out to do and it’s about time I started taking this creative writing business seriously.

In my cupboard there is a box full of unfinished novels, plays, poems and short stories. I have been lucky enough write small stories for a national children’s magazine however I have found that the leap from that to a novel is a tricky if not a little ambitious. I am never far away from a notepad and I hope that one day my incoherent scribbling will flourish into something with a beginning, middle and an end.

This year I have decided to experiment with flash fiction and short stories. So far I have found that that this form of writing helps me focus on creating a plot, capturing the moment, characterisation, developing meaningful dialogue and making every word count.. The most valuable thing to any writer is feedback which is why I am now being brave and publishing my work online.

I hope you enjoy my collection. Constructive criticism is always welcome

    I’m pleased I found you. You stopped by my blog so I followed the link. I admire you’re bravery to publish. Despite the fact that I seem to be engaged in too many things I also enjoy writing and have decided to give it a go. I look forward to reading more of your work. Many thanks.

      Thank you for your comment. Yes, it’s quite scary publishing your work online and hope it will help me develop as a writer. I barely let my husband read my work! Half the battle is just sitting down and writing something in the first place before life gets in the way. I hope you enjoy my short stories and flash fiction, feel free to let me know what you think (good or bad)
