Down in the shed…
The shed at the bottom of the garden is where I disappear to think and write. If you can’t find me here then check out the local coffee shops.
This blog gives me an excuse to write as often as possible. It has also become the depository for the majority of my stories. These tend to be short stories, flash fiction, and micro fiction pieces. I even delve into a little poetry every now and then.
In July 2009 I retired – I’d been a primary school head teacher for 25 years. I’m using my retirement to try all the things I never had the time to do when I was working.
I’ve always read a lot and still do. My wife says I have some strange ideas when it comes to reading! I like thrillers and science fiction. I still read books about education, especially what education might look like in the 21st Century. I love reading management/business books, self-help books, books about how our minds work and… well the list goes on!
I enjoy playing with technology. I would be lost without my MacBook, my Kindles and my iPad. Amazon’s Alexa is now a constant companion of mine down here in my shed! I enjoy blogging and quite fancy having a go at podcasting, though whether I will ever get around to it is another matter.
Recently I teamed up with a fellow retired educator called David Horner and between us, we are creating resources for teachers, which we sell on TES. We call ourselves ‘Goodeyedeers’. All the money we raise from this venture we donate to a local charity called MedEquip4Kids.
One day I’m going to self-publish a selection of my flash fiction and/or short stories. One day…
That’s me. If you’d like a chat you can find me on Twitter or leave a message below.
