“I grew up in Meopham just outside Gravesend in Kent. I went to Meopham School and then on to Hadlow College. I’ve always had a passion for the written word ever since I can remember.
In 2007 I joined the Princes Trust Team Programme which introduced me to the world of Performing Arts at Walk-Tall Village in Northfleet. From then on my writing became more prolific and I was offered a place on a foundation writing degree course, regretfully I turned this down. It didn’t put me off and I had a book Published in 2010.
Writing had to go on hold when I had my son in 2012, little did I know how much of an impact he would have on my life and family. But absolutely no regrets, I’m now finding time once again to sit and write.”
