What inspires me to write is the hidden side of life: The inside of people. The underbelly of relationships. Our secret natures. To see how suffering tests us to breaking point, yet teaches us what we are made of.
Born Up North in England, as a child I lived for short bursts in South Africa, California, Florida and Hawaii. It gave me a taste for hot and cold, in people and places.
Stories, in whatever form, are what inspire me. I like to write stories with a surround-sound feel to them, that wrap you up inside them.
This site is a space for my writings, musings, ideas and stories. For information on my art therapy practice, please visit Silver Owl art therapy and urban retreats.
