Until recently (about two years ago) I wrote for pleasure, but redundancy forced me into evaluating my career options and I decided that I would like to make the move in to writing professionally. Just over a year ago I started writing a blog; I started by posting some of my own short stories and updates on various other projects that I am working on - my three nascent novels, and a non-fiction booklet about several influential Anglo-Saxon women. Recently I have started reviewing books, albums and concerts.
I have always had a keen eye for detail, spelling and grammar, which is useful for me but I never thought anyone else would be interested in my skills. That was until I was asked to edit some short stories for friends. I actually rather enjoy it.
