i live in a flat in oxford with my wife and our two cats, pooky and columbus.
my wife is a writer but she is, as yet, unpublished. she writes poetry and fiction. check out the link to her poetry on my blog!
pooky is white and very cute and silly. she’s the cat that never grew up, she still likes to play and is all over us. when i’m eating or am on the laptop then i have to make space for her to sit. as such the laptop becomes a legtop…
columbus is autumn-coloured and an independant cat. she just looks at pooky with a withering look that says “have you no dignity?”.
i used to be an english and drama teacher for 5 years but have recently left teaching and started a career in publishing. i now work at oxford university press where i work on the oxford english dictionary.
i love reading novels and comics. i like to watch sport a lot – football and cricket in particular. i also like to paint and draw and, of late, have mostly been drawing my cats.
