I live in North Northumberland and was previously in Leeds and before that in Hull, but I actually grew up in Kent. It seems I have migrated northwards! I have three grown-up children and am interested in photography, reading, art, writing, walking and anything of general interest in the world at large.

But sometimes I just like looking at the world in unusual ways from different angles! This comes in quite useful when interviewing, writing articles and stories and proofreading a variety of work that comes my way.
