I'm fascinated by the changing social and cultural landscape of Southern California and, on a different note, by the history and influence of the Andalusian city of Cadiz in the late eighteenth century. I'm a creative writer in my spare time, and have written four novels, a volume of short stories and had a serialised novella published in the Plymouth evening newspaper in the early 2000s. I also love countryside walking, especially on the South West coastal footpath in Devon and Cornwall.
