I’m a post-graduate student of Professional Writing with Falmouth University. I’m also a Gemini, and therefore a communicator, which explains why I’m happy when closeted with my faithful Macbook. UPDATE: I sent in my final, major, project a day before the deadline so now (mid-March) I’m waiting for the result in a few weeks’ time.
I like writing about almost anything: travel, cooking, current events, England — whatever comes up, especially places — and I make occasional excursions into Fiction.
I don’t tell everyone I’m good at: making choux pastry, driving, Sudoku — and writing.
Favourite places: Falmouth, St Ives, Stourhead gardens, Sydney Harbour; Favourite road: A303.
Historical Period: the Tudors are fascinating, but the 18th-century’s got a lot going for it.
More favourites: Book: depends on my mood, could be ‘The Wind in the Willows’ (I’ve read War and Peace twice.). Authors: Dickens and P G Wodehouse; Poet: impossible to have just one — maybe Charles Causley — and Shakespeare (whoever wrote it). Music: classics from Tallis to Taverner, then Abba (don’t laugh, it’s singable), Queen, and Eleanore.
What else? Reading, photography, art, family history, exploring the countryside. I was a local councillor for a while and once contested a Parliamentary seat (unsuccessfuly). Family: long-suffering husband who shares my love of words; children; two demanding Siamese cats. Lifestyle: fairly traditional with occasional excursions outside the norm.
