Other than writing
Just a few words about life outside the writing sphere ...
My current interests include architecture, 19th & 20th century art,
ceramic jugs, jellyfish, art nouveau, visiting museums and galleries,
eating out, theatre, reading contemporary fiction and poetry, and of
course seeing family. I'm a member of Friends of Southampton's
Museums and Galleries, and of The National Trust and English
Heritage. On my cookery bookshelf is the National Trust's Book of
Scones. I run a recipe/food info blog at
and have been a committed vegetarian for 40 years.
A while back I studied for an AS level in Drama & Theatre Studies,
and gained an A grade. My ambition was a part as a duty
solicitor on The Bill, but too late! I'm a great animal lover, a member
of the Bat Conservation Trust and a life member of the British Hedgehog
Preservation Society and of the Vegetarian Society.
Now can I talk about writing?
