My drink of choice…

I was the kid reading with a flashlight under the bed covers – of course, with the iPad I’ve lost the flashlight.

In the nineties I took a break from working in technology and digital to get an MFA in Creative Writing at Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts. While studying at Emerson, I published short fiction, wrote and read Poetry, and spent what time I could drifting from café to café observing people and writing.

After graduating, I returned to technology and digital, and eventually moved to London where I now live. Over the last couple of years, I dusted off old stories and began on a new path – writing longer length fiction. This has led me further into writing a novel than I’ve ever gotten before.

I now have lots of pent-up stories circulating in my head, and years more observation and experience under my belt – and feel I have more to say now. I’m hoping to use this blog to chronicle my journey, and along the way I’ll also upload some of my work – and with some luck and hard work – bits of my novel.

I intend to publish my books in e-book format – more on that in a future blog post.

Wish me luck!
