Author. Retired Creative Writing Tutor. Worked in adult education, in a mental health centre, rehab prison unit. Now I work as a volunteer teacher and teacher trainer in Sri Lanka. I help look after the grandchildren and various animals here in the UK. I am not keen on animals, but I do my bit. I am interested in all aspects or writing creatively and other people who write around the world. My writing is always funny and sad. A sense of humour is a useful tool in life, and so is understanding peoples' sadness.
