Notes from my island

I’ve been a writer all my life. It’s fair to say it IS my life, because, to be honest, I’m not that great at anything else!

Oh, I’ve dabbled in singing, playing guitar and clarinet, doing repair jobs at home, and acting; but although I did ok, I never really felt totally proud of myself.

But writing has always – ok, usually! – made me feel good; given me a sense of achievement.

But, as you will know (because chances are that you write too), it’s impossible to be totally satisfied with what you’ve written. Like this, my first blog post! So I’m always trying to push myself.

And that’s why I’m doing this… sharing my short stories by reading them on my podcast.

I’d love to hear from you, to find out what you’re doing, and hope you’ll find time to have a listen to my podcast and let me know what you think.

I live on the tiny Isle of Wight, off the south coast of Britain. It’s a great place to live and write, and I know lots of lovely people here, but I’d love to make connections with fellow writers and readers all over the world, which is why I’m doing this, basically…

So please say hello! And thanks for reading my first ever wordpress blog post!

I write - crime fiction, plays, and short stories. This blog is about me and my podcast.... ... in which I bravely write new short stories, and then even more bravely read them out from the seclusion of my shed on the Isle of Wight! The podcast stories are free to listen to, but I'm supporting Quay Arts, so if you want to help them through these tough times, please make a donation, however small, at Thanks x
