A Virtual Showcase
I write about whatever interests me and have included a selection of pieces here as a showcase of my own work. More than anything - with this blog as my tool - I am trying to bridge the gap between my love of writing and the growing need for content on a digital platform.
If you have any copy needs, or want to discuss some ideas, please feel free to get in touch on my 'Contact' page.

AND I KNOW I CAN DO THIS BECAUSE I WENT TO LONDON ON MY OWN AND BECAUSE I SOLVED THE MYSTERY OF WHO KILLED WELLINGTON AND I FOUND MY MOTHER AND I WAS BRAVE AND I WROTE A BOOK AND THAT MEANS I CAN DO ANYTHING
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time - Mark Haddon

Writing a Review - 'The Sad Club' at HOME Theatre, Manchester
A review of 'The Sad Club' written by Luke Barnes - performed at HOME theatre by students from Winstanley College as part of the 2019 Connection youth theatre festival.
Writing about Teaching and Learning - The Differentiation Charm
This is a piece from another blog that I publish on, called the 'Magic of Teaching.' It combines teaching and learning ideas with my deep-rooted love of the Harry Potter series, using JK Rowling's wizarding world as a relatable platform for my discussion.
Writing Non-Fiction - A sample foreword from my book:
"Fish and Chips - No Ham"
This is the foreword for a book I am currently working on about my experiences of working in pubs, bars and restaurants from my late teens into my early twenties. It is tongue-in-cheek and written in an informal conversational style; intended to be humorous, anecdotal and painfully relatable.
Writing Creatively -
A Character Background
This is a short piece of creative writing - a character back-story written for a fictional character that I designed for use in a campaign of Dungeons and Dragons.
It is imaginative and fantastical, and merges my passion for story-telling with my love of role-playing games.
