I currently live in Yorkshire in the United Kingdom. I was brought up down South. I have lived in Australia where I wrote for a living as well as working with the deaf and hearing impaired community.
In the UK I used to write professionally about video games and gardening and cooking. I also write fiction and have a keen interest in disability issues because my daughter, who died in 2005, had a severe form of cerebral palsy. Right now, in 2015, I am not working for a living, I am studying for a Masters Degree in Contemporary History and International Politics at the University of York.
