THE MAGIC APOSTROPHE

HOME PAGE

 

I’ve been a writer since I was 8 years old and I’m still at it, aged, well, never mind.  I write to entertain myself as much as my readers, if I’m honest.  My characters take over and I go along for the ride until – well – they get off!  I’ve been fortunate enough to win the Tir na n-Og Award twice and have also been short-listed for it six times, more than any other Welsh author.

 

As well as being a writer, I'm also an enthusiastic tutor.  I return to Wales from my home in Brittany two or three times a year to visit schools and libraries to help children – and teachers, during twilight sessions and INSET days – discover the joys of creative writing.  I've tutored a week-long course at Ty Newydd, the Taliesin Trust National writing centre in North Wales, facilitated many adult education courses at various centres.  I’m proud to support the charity “World of Words Wales”.  Rob Jones, who runs it, offers through WOW a well-being programme using literacy and language to build confidence and self-esteem amongst Welsh children.  I have also worked in Northern Irish schools and some English schools on the Welsh borders.  You will find Rob’s contact details on the “What’s New” page.


If you've read and enjoyed any of my books, please put a review on Amazon and/or the GoodReads website – and tell your friends!  Every review helps!
