I’ve written a handful of novels and even burnt one. 

Along with my failures (like that burnt manuscript) have been successes. I was awarded a scholarship for prose writing through Lancaster University. I was shortlisted in a national short story competition. My self-published novel White Knights was a commercial success. 

I’ve learnt that a published book has a life of its own, that readers love to connect and that writing never gets easier. I consider it a significant achievement that I write every day.
