Writer, Poet, Llama enthusiast
I've been writing, both as a ghostwriter and under my own name, for 10 years.Stories of adventure and excitement. Thought-provoking tales. Poetry that rhymes (but not all the... times).
Not always entirely serious.
Not always entirely not-serious.

Poetry published in the 26 Wild collection

I like llamas (but that's a whole other thing)
Writing for Wellbeing
For the last 6 years, I have been coordinator of Lapidus International, the writing for wellbeing community.In this time, I have coordinated 2 international conferences, worked as a researcher on two bid-funded projects, hosted a range of off-and-online events, helped edit a magazine, been trained as a Action Learning Set facilitator, and answered a billion emails (that's a close estimate, anyway).I am now building a community of writers who use wellbeing in their practice closer to home. I am coodinator of the Welsh branch: Lapidus Cymru
I'm a performer at heart. I love to tell an engaging story that all my players can enjoy.I have been playing Dungeons and Dragons and other tabletop roleplaying games for over 15 years. Group storytelling and interactive fiction are some of my favourite things.It felt like a natural step to move more professionally into this world as a writer and Game Master at conventions.
