Highlights of Story and Creations:

For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to travel the world and to be a writer. Yet for many years my life was a cycle of commuting, working long hours and squeezing life into the weekends.

When I eventually remembered my early dreams I started to be more adventurous with my annual holidays, and I began scribbling stories during the morning train ride. But it wasn't enough…

WorldWideWriter is Born

I'd already started a travel blog as a way to record my experiences. And I was writing my first novel, although it was progressing very slowly. This was at a time when there was a major restructuring at work, and my job was going to disappear. Something had to change, and rather than take an alternative role that I wasn't going to enjoy, I decided to push for an "exit package".

Three months later I had embarked on my new life as a full-time writer and frequent traveler. My travel website – WorldWideWriter – is now well established, and I am halfway through my second novel.

This life has taken me in unexpected directions. For instance, I have become known as a book reviewer (both fiction and non-fiction). I have become active in the Historical Novel Society and am helping to organize this year's UK conference. And I am always looking to sharpen my skills in all areas from photography to web development.
