fiction and other writing

About the author

I used to spend my time working as a teacher and Head Teacher and then as an Associate Lecturer with the Open University. Now I spend my time writing stories and poems. I’ve been writing for the last few years and love reading and writing poetry. I also enjoy playing the piano and ukulele and painting in watercolour.

I work as a volunteer for the e-zine All Things Girl as a contributor. I was the Writings’ Editor for five years but now want to concentrate on my own writing for a while. ATG is a showcase for women’s writing and has four themes a year. Check it out:

I’ve published ‘The Truth Finder’ a young adult fantasy book; ‘The Green Book’ and ‘Tiny Tyrannosaurus’, which are two children’s chapter books and a book of poetry, ‘Nature’s Gold’. All are available on Amazon and Lulu. I’ve also published, ‘The Mermaid’ a book of short stories.

I’m currently in the middle of writing two novels. One is a fantasy novel, the sequel to The Truth Finder and the other is a whodunnit. For a while I’ve been collecting new stories for a fourth book of short stories, but I’m debating whether to change this to a book of ghost stories.

I’m a keen member of the Winsford Writers, a local writing group. We welcome new members so if you live in the area do get in touch.It’s challenging and great fun.

  1. Very Professional-looking!

  2. A nicely written, and may I say interesting, bio Penny. I also like your choice of theme and your layout. I will make the effort to get back for a good look around. I’m still trying to catch up with responses to my initiative this morning to produce a ‘resource list’. I will of course keep you all up to speed on where it goes from these humble beginnings. Thanks again.

  3. Hi Penny

    Just left a comment on your book review. Has been awhile since I stopped by; whole new look from what I see, but very clear and simple, and easy on the eye.


  4. Hello again Penny. Good heavens but that A to Z Challenge made April a long month. I’ve now reviewed the huge list of blogs I ended up with on my Blogroll and your name found itself still there at the end of the process. lol
    My aim now is to follow about 40 blogs regularly, so please bear with me as I settle into working out a routine. I just wanted to get back and make sure you were still here!

    • Hello Tom,
      Yes still here 😉
      Funny you should mention organising a routine to read blogs you follow, I’ve just decided to do the same.I follow so many excellent blogs but sometimes it’s hard to find the time, but I thought I might read a few every night after my evening meal.
      All the best
