I'm a middle-aged, pedantic-about-apostrophes, English-teaching, book-obsessed, cardigan-wearing grandmother with a keen eye for the funny, absurd side of life. What I observe, I put down in writing. Over the last 20 years, I've been published on-line and off-line, most notably on education in TES and emagazine and in faith publications such as Woman Alive. 


I'm a member of the Society of Authors and the Association of Christian Writers. In 2016-2017 I was selected for the prestigious Writing West Midlands Room 204 mentorship programme for emerging writers.

A bit more about me

Let me introduce myself. I'm a writer, blogger and English teacher based in Warwickshire, and I'm very happy that you're visiting my site. Thank you :) 
My new book 'Miss, What Does Incomprehensible Mean?' - a funny but poignant memoir of a year in my teaching life - will be released by SPCK Publishing on 21 May this year. Whoop-whoop! Why not click the Books tab to find out more about the book?
