I have loved writing for as long as I can remember. I am a voracious reader and I have to read every day. Life is better with books, and I firmly believe that they can unlock your own imagination and take your mind to places you have never dreamed possible.

My writing falls into three categories – journalistic, fiction and non-fiction. I also do a weekly Substack essay.

Everything I do contains my passion for words and the fact that, quite simply, I love to write.

I am thrilled to have visited schools for World Book Day. To read my work to them and see their faces light up is beyond anything I’ve ever experienced before. They always ask me what it takes to be a writer, and I always reply:

If you want to be a writer, then you’ve got to be a reader.”

May you enjoy your reading and writing journey.
