After many years working in mental health and as senior civil servant, I have taken time to indulge in my passions of walking, Wales and writing. I am working to combine all three in historical novels set in Wales. Occasional potter, photographer and painter my aim is to develop parts of my brain little used until now – while I still have the chance.
