Words wrangled for pleasure, learning, escapism. The fun of telling a story and the thrill of finding out.
Creative writing PhD. MA in popular culture. PGCE. Degree in social sciences. All useful from when I was a teacher. These days, I write full-time.
Things I'm interested in include:
Stories. Yours. Hers. Mine. That bloke over there's.
Movies especially, though fascinated by popular culture and digital humanities more widely.
Public seating and memory. See my book Benches of Louth for more details.
Short and long-form fiction, screenplays and radio drama.
Non-fiction, auto/biography and travelogue.
