I started writing poetry in 2013, but only began on fiction in early 2016 after doing an Open University course on creative writing through the Future Learn website. I am now posting some of my work in the hope that someone out there will be moved to give me some feedback (free of course!). My painting activities go back to 1992 and I have worked in most media including oils, watercolour, acrylics, pastels, and pen and ink. I am a member of the Welwyn Garden City Writers’ Group and of the Hertford Art Society.
I was born in 1940 in Plymouth, Devon, and am a retired university lecturer (physical chemistry). I live in Hertordshire, UK. I had thought that a lifetime of writing scientific material would have stifled my creativity, but a muse has appeared from somewhere to allow me to paint and write.
