About Me

Did my A level in Theatre Studies in Banbury, but couldn't get a grant to study at degree level so went to work for 10 years. Then returned to college and retook English, along with doing a BTec in Performing arts. Went on from there to do a BA in Drama and Creative writing, followed by a PGCE in Theare and English.
Taught in schools for a few years, Drama, and wrote plays which were well received. Took up teaching English as regular money for a jobbing actor isn't ... well, regular.
Spent 2 years in Ukraine, which I loved, but left because of visa requirements. Lived in Romania for 6 months then returned to ol' Blighty.
Been teaching English online (mostly to Russian students) for the past 6 years, and writing when I can.
I did begin writing a series of stories about the adventures of The Doctor's Daughter, but was kyboshed on that when I learned that only the BBC can publish stories based on any of their characters, and they only allow BBC employees to write them.
Have several novels on the go, and myriad plots swirling around my mind,
Nowadays I also coach people in speech: preparation for auditions, business presentations, wedding speeches etc
