I gained a 2.1 BA Hons Degree in Imaginative Writing from Liverpool John Moores University in 2002, when I was twenty-two years old. But at that stage of my life, I did not have the discipline to write, or the appreciation for the world around me that I do now at age thirty-six. Instead I chose to follow a different career path, working as a Procurement Manager, where I have gained many relevant writing skills such as, having great attention to detail and the ability to write commercially. As well as needing to be engaging and thought-provoking, I believe good writing should be accessible so it can be read by and understood by people of all backgrounds, and I believe this constitutes my writing style which hopefully my first novel, The Grass is Darker, demonstrates.
I’m afraid I don’t have any accolades or titles to add to this CV, but I look forward to looking back on this first biographical note in ten years’ time and comparing it to the list of ten best-selling titles I am going to write! The Grass is Darker is my first novel, and I am also working on a spin off novel which will be all about Tristam. My head is full of ideas for other novels I can’t wait to write more in the near future.
