Welcome

Hi, and thank you for stopping by. You’ll find lots of information about my WW1 novel, The Goose Road, as well as writing tips & stuff about life as an author, via the “Practical Writing Tips” dropdown menu. It’s to the right on bigger screens & underneath this welcome page on phones. The first chapter of my book is pinned to the top of the blogs page if you fancy a quick taster. New for 2020: I’ll be running creative writing workshops for WriteMentor in Plymouth, UK. The first one is May 16-17. Follow me on Twitter for updates about this & lots more! Have a great day.
