"I'm 46 years old, and have been writing for about 6-7 years, though only in the last couple of years have I started to take it more seriously. I live in Long Beach, been married for 16 years and have a 13 year old daughter. I grew up in UK, just outside of London, but have been in US for the last 18 years, (outside of a year spent teaching English in Mexico). I also spent a short time living in Spain.
I've had stories, travalogues and some essays published in three ex-pat magazines in Mexico, but that was because I knew the editors. Other than that I've been too lazy to send out stories, so don't really have a bio here in the states.
Favorite authors include - Don DeLillo, Cormac McCarthy, Barbra Kingsolver, Annie Proulx, Ian McKewan (kind of boring and conventional now I see it written down, oh well!!). Hmm? - also Carlos Fuentes, Juan Rulfo, Jeanette Winterson.....okay, that's better."
