I was born in the district of Eton in 1942, and spent a happy and carefree childhood in the rural setting of Old Windsor. I went to the University of Aberdeen, graduating in 1965 with an Honours Degree in History. I followed this by reading for an M.A. in American History at the College of William and Mary in Virginia.I taught at a private school in London on my return to the U.K., and eventually became side-tracked into Law, reading for an external degree from the University of London and then taking the Bar examinations in 1976. I spent the next two decades as a practising barrister.
I am a keen member of my local writing group, Llanelli Writers’ Circle, which provides excellent support and critical analysis. Over the last decade or so I have specialised mainly in short stories, and have won awards from the ‘National Association of Writers’ Groups’ and been short-listed several times in other competitions, notably those contained in ‘Writing Magazine’, which I would recommend to any aspiring writer.
