I’m currently working on these writing projects:

  • A novel which I began in early 2018. I was very lucky to get a manuscript critique from The Literary Consultancy through Arts Council England’s Free Reads Scheme, via Writing East Midlands.
  • Researching the history of Wicksteed Park. As a volunteer at the archive, I’m transcribing the minute books of Wicksteed Village Trust and putting together the details about people and events.
  • This blog! I had a couple of false starts with blogging in the past. However, creating blog posts was one of my projects for a recent job and I realised that I liked seeing my words on the internet.

Here are my blog posts about writing:
