I live in England and after a long career in management and interior design during which I travelled Europe and America, and met a variety of people from politicians to comedians and criminals, my hat now hangs on a hook marked ‘writer’.
Currently, I am conducting research for a creative writing PhD with Manchester Metropolitan University. It examines our human need to identify with place, how we make meaningful connections with and through the land, how memory is made and the comfort we take from rite and ritual. This will culminate in a work of non-fiction— a book— that will sit in the emergent field of place writing.
As a champion for creative non-fiction I provide one-to-one mentoring and can facilitate at writing workshops. I am also interested in collaborative art projects and commissions.
