Other interests

As an author, you can imagine how much I love writing. I also enjoy swimming, spending time with my friends and delving into a good book with a cup of coffee. I’m a Christian, so I love church and getting involved in wider Christian organisations.

I also love walking this one, my 3 year old Staffy cross named Chewie! He is very friendly and loves cuddles and cardboard.
