Children know nothing of factions or politics. Why must we teach them to take sides, when all we have to do is find food and shelter together?

I am a writer from Southampton in the United Kingdom. I was born in London, lived in Scotland, and now live in England once more, so you could say I'm well-traveled in a several hours down the motorway kind of way. I write fiction, poetry and essays. Since finishing my Master's Degree in History I've had much more time to write fiction as opposed to a version of the truth. I've been published in a number of journals over the years and I am currently writing a novel.

These days I split my time between writing and working in a library, so I am pretty much around books all the time and now I don't have degree work to do, I can indulge in reading fiction a lot more. I have a keen interest in historical fiction, but really any genre or time period is fine by me. After all, I can't afford to dislike any genre as a writer as I may end up writing in it one day.
