The last two years of tutoring Creative Writing in Abergavenny has resulted in the publication of an anthology called Scribbles from the Hills which includes a variety of pieces written by my class during the first two years of the group's existence. I am proud to pull this collection together and to write the Foreword. I'm delighted to put my name to this and I look forward to a many more pieces in the future.
This summer I once again published a poem in the Roath Writers Anthology, ‘To the Pub and Back Again, Volume VII.’ It is the true account of my personal journey back to writing.
In 2018, Lapidus published a short story in their Summer Journal. ‘The Red Exercise Book’ is the story of a little girl who sought friendship in the characters she created through words.
The same summer I published a poem in ‘To the Pub and Back Again, Volume VI.’ This is a reflection of the waterways which have been important to me and was inspired by my many journeys from home to the Roath Writers group meetings.
Currently working on a novella called ‘Bring Him Home.’ This was intended to be a gift to my late Grandmother and is the tale of the day her eldest brother was killed in the mining industry in industrial South Wales in the 1940s.
