I was born in Halifax, West Yorkshire, UK and that’s where I currently reside. I am a teacher by profession, but I sustained an injury in an accident, which ended with me being disabled. I am married to my partner of 41 years and we have two dogs - Tilly, 14 and Willow, 2. I have always written, but always for my own pleasure. RUN was different, I saw the potential of creating what I hoped was an exciting book. I hope everyone agrees…
