I am a freelance writer (as of 2020) with a background in primary teaching and tutoring. Broadly speaking, what interests me is autobiography, biography, education and the arts.
One current aim is to help enrich children’s lives by promoting the best extra-curricular opportunities, good teaching, books and the arts. You will find my most recent articles listed under ‘The Edinburgh Parent’.
On this site you will also find a downloadable list of over 400 children’s book recommendations, which I am constantly updating.
We are, actually, pioneers trying to find a new path through the maze of tradition, convention and dogma.

Just think what a real education for these children would involve. It would start by giving a child an understanding of himself, his world, his culture, his community. That’s the starting point of any educational process.
Yorkshire really formed my character. I get straight to the point and say what I feel. I can’t help it, it’s genetic.
