Writer, designer, and Architect. Author of three novels, short stories, a children’s book, and a biography of the artist Gillian Watkiss.
I was born in an old Cornish cottage in the rural parish of St Levan.
Dylan Thomas lived there before his marriage to Caitlin.
My parents then moved to Zennor, a remote coastal village where D.H. Lawrence and his German wife, Frieda, had a cottage during the first world war. At the time, and because of Frieda’s background (she was related to the infamous Red Barron), the locals suspected them of spying.
The relevance these famous writers have to my story is, precisely… none whatsoever. They are just interesting facts about two elite literary figures I considered worth bandying about in this biography. I’m not saying our closely shared geographical history has, in any way, enhanced my own literary talents.
However, I’m sure Dylan and Lawrence would have really enjoyed my novels had they lived long enough to read them.
