I’ve been writing for 35 years – stories, reviews, poems, bits of journalism. I live in Oxford in the UK and worked for a long time in London. I was with Oxfam for 16 years. For the last six years at the charity I was Fundraising Director. After that I was CEO of a small non-profit. I then worked for nine years for an organisation which advises renewable energy businesses in Africa – Energy4Impact. I retired at the end of April 2018, in part to be able to focus on my writing.
