I keep fans in touch with their favourite sports and teams.

I use my lifetime interest in and around sport to create a career based on sports writing. I also deliver school based educational literacy programmes using sport as the driver. I am always available to discuss any literary projects, be they sports based or otherwise. I always feel that it is the story that is most important, not the genre. If you feel you have a project you’d like me to help you with, please just contact me. I am also an experienced speaker and deliverer of educational workshops from Year 4 at Primary Level, through to Year 11 in Secondary Education. I focus on a combination of delivering inspirational speeches to young people to inspire them to embrace reading for pleasure as a lifelong hobby and explain my unconventional route to becoming an author. I owe my success to reading and a determination to never give up, despite many rejections along the way and I share that story in school assemblies and class gatherings. In addition, I deliver writing workshops based around sport, along with a Sports Journalism module which gives an introduction to that specialist side of writing. Content writing is also one of my skills and I regularly provide copy for sporting events and speeches to enable third parties to deliver speeches and host Q&A’s for sporting celebrities. I have provided detailed copy of the lives and careers of sporting legends as diverse as Sir Viv Richards, Jason Leonard, Jeff Thomson, Lee Mears, Ray Wilkins, John Francome, Lewis Moody, Sir Garfield Sobers, Bob Champion, Paul Merson, Phil Bennett, Ravi Shastri and Howard Webb for several Masters of Ceremonies at popular Sporting Events. I played football to Welsh League level and cricket in the South Wales Cricket League during my “active” sporting life, but nowadays, those sports have been replaced by daily cycling and my other life long passion, golf. I wish I was better at both….but I keep trying!
