I've written, on and off, since my teens. Over the years I've worked outside of the day job as a freelance journalist, as a book reviewer, and as an editor for a couple of niche publishers. Over the last 10 years or so I've worked on fiction more seriously, having completed 2 novels, 2 collections of shorts, won or been shortlisted in a couple of international poetry competitions, and been serially anthologised. I'm currently the managing editor for a project dedicated to publishing folklore, legends, myths and fairytales from around the world - Tales From The World's Firesides.

  2. Every day is a 'learning day'. The day I forget that is the day I should hang up my boots... let's hope I'm paying attention...

  3. And finally, life is not complete without a best mate... here are a few of mine...
