I write for fun than a desire to be published - my best friend roped me into nano back in 2006 and I like stretching a different creative part of my brain. I also write for her region, last year all of us embracing the plot bunnies and winning the 2010 UK Regional Word War (and remain undisputed champions).
For Boro, Darlo and Middleton St George!
When not at home or running my Girl Guide unit, you'll normally find me either in a small dark box twiddling knobs, or ordering burley men with poles to turn it from a soft into a hard (and sometimes the other way round!) ;)
Before you ask, I'm a tv lighting director....
