I am a writer and artist from Hove on the South coast of England. I am a retured lecturer and I am also very involved in helping people...

I am a retired lecturer committed now to my work as a writer and artist. I live in Hove in Sussex,England. All my work has, i would say the object of encouraging people to think and work out their own path in life. I have published a collection of poetry,a volume of short stories and a novel
Much of my writing concerns my late mother whose carer I was for many years- my art and all my work tends to have a leaning toward an attempt to see below the surface of things and to get people thinking I am actively involved in helping people in prison and am currently writing a book about this
On my page I am also exhibiting work by some of my prisoners.
I look forward to your feedback and to meeting many fellow writers and artists from England and anywhere in the world
