I’m prone to a good flaute on my flute (occasionally even playing the right notes), love Pringles… can’t stand cucumber.
I live near Taunton, in the South West of England (where cider abounds, fortunately).
Currently employed at Bridgwater and Taunton College, I teach both GCSE English and ESOL (English as a second language). I’ve also taught some A Level Philosophy, and lectured in Ethics/Theology at degree level (Bristol Baptist College). To keep me out of mischief (sort of) from June-July I mark GCSE Religious Studies exam papers for OCR (Christianity and Judaism).
When there’s nothing decent on Netflix, I find myself studying for a Master’s Degree in Church History with Nottingham University.
I appear to be responsible for Scripture Union’s best-selling young adult novel ‘Dear Bob’, a Bridget-Jones style exploration into ‘Jude Singleton’s’ first year at Uni (and for the sequel: Love Jude).
In addition to this, I’ve contributed to three other books (non-fiction) and have had many articles published, including some in Woman Alive and in the Church Times.
My current work is an exciting collaborative project with three other fabulous writers, developing (AKA: messing around with) a book of quirky (yet highly theological!) Bible poems for children/teens.
