I grew up in the Midlands, but now I live in rural Devon where I write, play music with my friends and teach guitar.
I have a degree in psychology and a masters in archaeology. I've previously taught archaeology in adult education.
I've had some pretty mad hobbies, including morris dancing, rock climbing and caving.
Now I fear I'm becoming a wimp as I tend to prefer walking and gardening, although that does include keeping chickens and bees.
