I love literature. I’ve taught English to kids, English as a foreign language and linguistics to university students. I’m working part-time now and I’m happy to say that gives me time to write. I was born in Plymouth, Devon, and, like my dad who was in the navy, I’ve done a fair bit of travelling. Presently, I live in Japan near the ocean. I enjoy hiking in the mountains, swimming, gardening, yoga, listening to music and, of course, reading lots of books.
