What I've Done
My mother likes to say I was reading before I could talk and writing before I could walk - I am 99.9% sure that isn't true, but it sure sounds pretty!
I had my first article published in a local newspaper when I was 8 and have been hooked ever since.
I went into the publishing industry straight from education and stayed there in one form or another. Lucky enough to earn money writing articles, blogs and short stories alongside travelling and having many grand adventures, it was not until 2017 that I sat down to write my first full length novel.
It was not easy!
Nothing like writing a short story or a blog piece. I ended up publishing a book on how to just sit down and write a book already!
I am in the process of publishing a compilation of short stories, all of which have won various short story competitions, and I have just finished the first draft of my supernatural suspense novel.

Get To The Point
very fortnight in Rugby, a group of writers meet to chat about their work over coffee. Initially, they had got nothing in common except their love of books and their passion for writing. They are a mixed bunch: novelists, short-story writers, poets, journalists and playwrights. Becoming friends, they share advice and encourage each other. Some have never had a word published before. But this is the result - the collected works of Rugby Cafe Writers, an entertaining, moving and occasionally shocking selection of original work.
A collection of short stories to tease and tickle your brain.
