Background Information

I have been writing for pleasure since childhood, although it wasn't until a couple of years ago that I took my first serious steps towards fulfilling my ambitions and signed up for a creative writing course. My major influences have been my family, friends and others who have impacted on my life in some way. Although I draw from real life for my inspiration, I do not write from a personal perspective ... that would be just too close for comfort. Instead I observe life ... people watch, eavesdrop,devour the sticky pages of the tabloid press, listen to gossip, whatever it takes...and I borrow other people's reality and manipulate it for my own ends...whilst remaining a thoroughly pleasant individual of course! To help me along my merry way I attend writing workshops and literature events. It's all just one long learning curve.

Accomplishments

Prize winner in Lord Mayor of London's annual national writing competition in 1973.
Winner of short story competition at Frustrated Writers Online 2001
Writer of the Month at Triplehitter.net Feb 2002

Additional Information

I have a completed novel manuscript under consideration at the moment and hope to have a collection of poetry released as an e-book within the next month. As part of my writing workshop, I will be taking part in a live literature event in London, where I shall be reading a short excerpt from my novel. This will take place on 4th July at the Centreprise Literature Development Centre in Kingsland Road London E8 from 7pm.
