about

A little about me & the blog. I’m currently working as a nursing assistant in the community, and writing about some of the people I meet. It’s really a sketchbook of characters & situations – all safely anonymised, of course. You’ll find these pieces by clicking on ‘voices’ in the menu.

I’m also writing some poetry, which you’ll find under ‘poems’.

I’m often adding new pieces to the blog, so it’s always worth checking back!

Before my current job I worked as an EMT in the ambulance service. You might have come across me blogging as ‘Spence Kennedy’ in my long-running ambulance blog Siren Voices.

In my free time I’m writing novels, too. I’ve self-published three so far. The latest is just in the final editing stage. I’ll let you know how it’s progressing.

Thanks for reading. It’d be great to hear from you – either in a comment, by email, or maybe  Twitter)

The books so far…

Frank’s Last Call

Based on the blog Siren Voices, the book follows a new EMT as he starts work in a busy seaside town.

Into the Eclipse

ITEWhen Kate leaves home to go to university, she is recruited by a secretive organisation and severs all links to her family. Ella, her mother, tries desperately to win her back. Eventually she turns to Noah, an anti-cult campaigner. Together they face up to an organisation prepared to do anything to protect itself, as it moves inexorably towards one final, cataclysmic event.

On Calder Hill

OCHExams are the least of Holly’s problems. Her mum has come up with yet another get rich quick scheme – the opening of a café in the local park – and Holly has been roped in to help. But as she sits daydreaming at the counter one morning, a mysterious young girl comes to visit. When she disappears after leaving an ancient silver penny as payment, something is begun that will challenge everything Holly thinks she knows – not just about her past, but about the fabric of time itself.
