My business background is in journalism. I’ve worked as a reporter for three local papers; one regional Sunday tabloid; and an international news agency, supplying the national press like The Times and The Daily Telegraph, as well as publications around the world, with UK news and features.
I am a writer, a thinker and a learner.
My career in newspaper journalism let me explore my passion for the English language. It also taught me the importance of accuracy, tenacity and, above all, integrity. Now, I satisfy my creative thirst by writing children’s books.
As an uncle to 15 nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, I realise how important it is to connect with your inner child. There’s always something new to learn; there’s always an opportunity to grow. My next challenge is to master Polish.
My hobbies include poker, chess, and juggling. The latter is a great way to relax — it clears your mind of all thoughts, giving you a blank canvas with which you can…. erm…. sorry – what was I talking about?
