I was born in London about forty years ago. I started a secret diary when I was nine, and it seems my writing is still secret...that wasn't the intention. I want to put my fiction writing 'out there' but lack confidence and a too demanding work life has taken the energy for creativity. By chance I was recently told of this site at a time when I've changed jobs so that I can continue to write and view the world in brighter light. I enjoy reading a good thriller, also Pat Barker (particularly 'Regeneration'), and have just discovered Amanda Brookfield and her well-written and insightful novels dealing with normal human realtionships.
