I was born and raised in Cardiff and moved around various parts of the UK including King's Lynn, Carmarthen, Southend-On-Sea and Andover. Finally, I returned to live in my home city of Cardiff in 1988.

I've had many different jobs and have worked in Government, Local Authorities, Banks, Manufacturing and the National Health Service

I'm a keen photographer and, on sunny days, I enjoy nothing more than a motorcycle ride with friends around the beautiful Welsh countryside.

For many years I was a hospital radio volunteer before giving up in order to free more time for writing.

The Tiny Writers' Circle


I am also a member of a small and exclusive writing circle, all of whom are independently published local authors. We meet approximately every fortnight at each other's homes and read our work to each other for comments and constructive criticism. We call ourselves the Tiny Writers Circle and over the many years we have been meeting we have become great friends. We all write in very different styles and in a variety of genres. I would urge you to visit their websites and read their work.


They are:


Pam Cockerill (General Fiction)


Iona Jenkins (Young Adults & Poetry) -


Jan Marsh (General Fiction) -


Ron Powell (WWII Air Battles and RAF Memoirs) -


K J Rabane (Crime) -
