A little about me.

I’m currently working as a nursing assistant in the community, writing and taking pictures the rest of the time.

Before my current job I worked as an EMT in the ambulance service. You might have come across me as ‘Spence Kennedy’ in my long-running ambulance blog Siren Voices, and the book that came out of that: Frank’s Last Call. 

Now I write under my own name. Later this year I’ll be publishing a novel based on my experiences in adult social care – so watch this space!

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

The books so far…
