Deaf British author gaining success in the world of literature.


Background Information

Ever since I was a child, I wanted to write stories. I am thankful to my school, where I was encouraged to do so. There I had the opportunity to write and read aloud my stories, whether it was to my class or to the whole school in general, and pursue the goal of what I wanted to be 'When I grew up'.

After a long journey of torture and self doubt and wondering whether I would make the grade as a published writer or to suffer the rejection of publishers/agents and magazine editors, that goal had now been realised, . My perseverance, and the hard work I put in studying various Creative Writing courses to master my craft, allowed me eventually to suceed, with the publication of my debut novel 'Early Memory' in January 2006. The general feedback and sales of the novel have been very positive, to the point that my occupation now is as 'A Writer'.

I write a range of genres and I already have ideas for other novels, all written down on paper, waiting to see the light of day!

Away from writing, I was diagnosed with Menieres in early 1999, after a period of ill health in mid 1998 that caused me to lose my job on medical grounds.
