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 busy planning a writing retreat in glorious West Yorkshire for June 2020 … if you’d like to receive full details when they’re hot off the press, please just let me know.

Venue for Yorkshire Writing Retreat – 27 June 2021

In early January 2021 bookings will also be open for the Italian writing retreat that I run each year.
