Words are my passion.  I write short fiction, poetry, and am working on a novel and a radio script.  When I’m not writing, I’m busy running workshops and online coaching sessions.

Just now, I’m looking ahead to my writing retreat in glorious West Yorkshire at the end of June 2020 … only two places left!   http://www.yorkshirewritingretreat.org 

Venue for Yorkshire Writing Retreat – 27 June 2021

In early January 2022 bookings will also be open for the Italian writing retreat that I run each year.
