My job title as a ghostwriter is one of my favourites, and I have secretly scribed many books available for purchase. It is really fun to learn what other people wish they could write. They have the ideas and I help them put those into books, websites and available for others to read. It’s fun, and I learn a lot.

YouTube Full Circle: the project I am most proud of, funded by Arts Council (UK) to raise awareness about the need to recycle, which in Gillingham we turned into our Christmas street decorations by making 1000 plastic stars! Full Circle; art from recycled waste decorates High Street for Christmas!
