Goals and Good Intentions for 2017

Speaking for all of us, 2016 was a “challenging” year. It certainly had its highs and lows. My big positives were successful spinal surgery and finding employment in Higher Education again.

Words and Pictures – New Project

I’m working on a writing project I promised myself a while back and now it makes sense for it to see the light of day. I just hope I’ve not given myself too tight a deadline. Between 2009-2012 I wrote intermittently for the flash fiction site ElephantWords.co.uk,  amassing around 50 short stories in total. Not all of […]
