Bio: I am a writer. I love writing creatively especially about subjects such as British traditions, where my made-up traditions are no less ridiculous than the real thing. A list of my books, both fictional and factual (about travel), can be found here.
I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool.
I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017.
My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders.
I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
