Joined 10 years ago from United Kingdom
Having lived in the beautiful countryside of South Western France for nine years, I have now moved back to the United Kingdom. My first language is English but I speak (and read and write) reasonable french.
I went back to study, part-time, in my late thirties, and accumulated a G.C.E Ordinary level, a GCSE, three GCE Advanced levels and a Bachelor's degree with Honours.
I have a passion and fascination with words and language, am an avid reader and have written, both poetry and prose, for as long as I can remember. I am also interested in history, cookery, travel, law and antiques.
I have sold articles to magazines.
