he-IpTNa.jpgI am a writer!  There, I said it…phew! For years those have been the hardest words to say; instead I hid my passion away like a naughty secret.  I thought if I told people they would laugh, or even worse, ask to read something!  Letting others read your work is terrifying.   You’re opening up your mind for someone to explore and, after writing a few stories, I have realized that my mind is a very strange place indeed!

So for years I kept my characters in my head, not allowing anyone to see the weird and beautiful lives they were leading.  I would think about them often but never let them escape into the public.  But, after a belly full of dutch courage, I decided to start this blog and allow people to read my work for the first time.

By day I am a performing arts lecturer but by night…well, I’m still a lecturer because there is always planning and marking to do! However, when i get a moment i like to write; mostly tales of twisted realities and mixed up characters.

Thank you for taking the time to read my stories. I am very new to the world of writing, still exploring my style and any comments would be most welcome!
