About me

Occupation Writer, teacher, translator.
Introduction I'm a British writer, teacher and translator living and working in mythical Thessalian Plain in Greece. I graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University with a degree in Creative Writing and Philosophy. After many years of procrastinating I took the plunge and have started publishing short sci-fi/horror/fantasy stories whilst completing a novel for which I am now actively seeking publication. I also do translation work. (See www.noarawle.blogspot.gr for writerly posts.) I've been teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL) for almost 20 years and I am an oral examiner for the PTE examinations. (See www.eflmiss.blogspot.gr for posts related to this field.)
Interests I love writing and reading, mostly speculative fiction. Movies of the same genre are a fave too!
Favorite Movies When I was a kid these were my favourite films: Star Wars, Ghost Busters, Indiana Jones, The Lost Boys.
Favorite Music Loud!!!! At the moment my faves are:- Driving: Last Rites 'Guided by Light', Faith and the Muse, New Model Army, Inkubus Sukkubus, Killing Joke and Tribazic Writing: Peter Gabriel 'Passion' and youtube mixes of Vangelis tracks.
