Interests
I write, publish and research in many different areas. I have written sports and Doctor Who biographies. I have written for BBC radio and had a play performed on Broadway in April 2019. My research is now taking me towards PhD. I am interested in alternative forms of learning; I have conducted trials which use software to rapidly teach children who struggle in a classroom. I hope to develop a therapy and an academic book. I have two young daughters and spend lots of time on Dartmoor.
