However, as a freelance writer, I've written a variety of articles for magazines and SEO as well as flash fiction, book reviews and short stories. I combine writing with my passion for languages and education and at present I count myself lucky to teach English as a foreign language in the beautiful Auvergne region of France. I taught French and German to both adults and children in the UK.
I've also just completed 12 months as the teacher diarist on the Macmillan OneStopEnglish website, dedicated to providing English teaching resources.
My other special interests are the outdoors, travel, fitness, food and drink and property. I've a wide range of work experience as my first career was in property acquisition and management in the UK - I qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in 1987 and worked in both residential and commercial offices before taking the plunge to qualify as a teacher.
I now have the time to take on more writing work alongside my teaching commitments.
