I am an award-winning journalist, teacher and trainer, and novelist who has worked across the media in the UK, including both newspapers and television.
I have a lot of experience of working in schools and currently run a school media project for the National Union of Journalists, training both teachers and pupils to establish newspapers and magazines. My teaching for the NUJ also includes professional feature writing training for journalists, and creative writing.
I have published four novels with Old Street: Ties That Bind, Kiss the Bullet, Dead Secret and The Chrysalis. The novels focus on the psychology and dynamics of human relationships and include themes of love, violence, suffering, transgender identity, personal redemption, and salvation. I am particularly interested in the psychology of writing and am currently undertaking a PhD in this area, looking at the role of experiential learning in the journey from fact to fiction, and the influences of gender and ethics on writing.
