Welcome to my website.
Thanks for dropping in.
I live in a small, but growing village in Carmarthenshire, not too far away
from the beautiful Welsh coastline and its fabulous sandy beaches. I am
a new writer. Writing began as a hobby and it may be true to say has
blossomed into a passion of mine. But I have always enjoyed literature.
It was a subject close to my heart from a young age, and during college
years I studied…yes …literature, and that of Science. I qualified as a
teacher under the University of Birmingham, and set off to teach in
London, Essex and Coventry, later returning to Cardiff and Port Talbot.
That was the year I also made it to the Lady Spencer Churchill College in
Oxford to specialize in teaching deaf children. We were a fairly rare
species in those days. Professionally my work brought me to Swansea
and Carmarthenshire, where I then took a B.A. degree in ‘Special
Education.’ My paramount interest was in language development
affecting non-linguistic children. So that’s me!
