I am a MA student at Oxford Brookes University, Oxford, England. I am in the middle of completing my Masters in Creative Writing. I am hoping to go onto to teach the subject after I graduate again later in the year. I live in the UK with my family who are my best friends and my greatest supporters. I decided to explore my talent for creative writing some years ago but I have only recently begun to write in earnest. `The Golden Veil' is a piece of short fiction I wrote some years ago which I have re-visited and re-written. I'm working on a number of pieces at the moment including a piece of non-fiction - a biography written in diary format. So do watch this space. As for my hobbies. I enjoy swimming, I hope to re-join the ladies swimming group at my local swimming baths. I also love cycling, keep-fit and horse-riding. I did take some tennis lessons and I hope to resume this once I have a little more time. I hope to post a number of stories on Smashword in different genres so please do feel free to read and enjoy. Best wishes. SYAA.
