After attending Central School of Art and Design where I somehow acquired a degree in Graphic Design, I moved onto making furniture for a charity. This led to Covent Garden Craft Market, where I designed and made chess and backgammon boards and sold my artwork.

But, life took over and I followed a man abroad, giving up all I had known to travel and work on organic farms across France and Spain. Three years later, I had worked as a builder, artist/craftsperson and even an artists's model.

Returning to England, I became a graphic designer for a children's picture book publisher. Then, a move to Brighton took me back to my woodworking days, as a joiner for a small company. The experience of also looking after kids with emotional/behavioural problems led me to become a Design Technology teacher.

Sixteen years later, I gave up teaching to concentrate on my writing. I hope you enjoy reading my work as much as I do writing it.
