Welcome! I hope you'll enjoy looking round my site.
Words are my passion. So I write short stories, poetry, flash fiction, and am working on my first psychological crime novel.
When I'm not writing, I'm busy helping and inspiring others, running workshops, coaching sessions and sharing writing tips.
Just now, I'm busy planning the Italian writing retreat I run each Spring and Autumn.
