After many years as a primary teacher, I combine writing and teaching, by writing textbooks and educational articles. I am a frequent contributor to the tes (Times Educational Supplement) online. Some of my articles are here .

I also write shopping lists, emails, texts and lots of WhatsApp messages. But I don’t suppose you’ll be that interested in them. I’d be fascinated by yours though. The tiniest titbits from other people’s lives can conjure up a storyline or two in my fevered brain.

I write a monthly post for a writers’ blog called More Than Writers where people blog about writing and sometimes, faith. Here’s one of my favourite posts for this blog but you can find my other posts by putting my name into the search bar at the top. While you’re there, have a look round. There are some sterling writers on the blog.
