    I've always loved reading and started writing pretty much as soon as I could hold a pen (this was long before the days of word processors). In my teens I devoured science fiction and fantasy and discovered the works of Anne McCaffrey in the local library. 'Gone Away, Gone Ahead' was my first attempt at writing fan fiction. I have also written stories based around the cinema industry.
    I write because I enjoy it, but it’s always great to get feedback - even just a few words - to know that someone out there is reading and sharing my created worlds.
