As an award winning writer I wanted to put my skills to use for other people. I can write efficiently and accurately. I enjoy researching articles on the topics that I have been asked to write on. This research has led me onto other articles which I have then sold on to publishers.
I am an award winning author; having written two (out of a series of) crime fiction novels. They are now being reworked ready for publication. Since writing these I have been asked to teach ad-hoc creative writing sessions to inmates, (of mixed learning abilities) at HMP Norwich. The sessions went down well. Not sjure who enjoyed it the most!
My interest in freelance writing started when I was asked to write an article for the prison service. This was published and I have had several pieces published. I am now looking to further that work.
Aspect (East Anglia)
My role for this roofing firm was to mix concrete for the tile makers. I was also responsible for the up-keep of the mixer and for the stock of pigments, sand and cements used.
Plot to Plot
I was a partner in this small vegetable supplying firm. The business grew and supplied vegetables in a box scheme around a select locality. We would also provide our customers with a card giving information about the vegetables in the box, and how to use them. This proved popular as did the recipe cards that we prepared for people who asked for more information.The business proved to be a profitable concern and when we sold the customer book there was about 150 clients included.
After going to Bible College and being ordained as a minister I took another role with this lively church. This role allowed me to preach at other churches letting them know of the work that we did and the need for support.
This role, although now not paid is still on-going. We work on the streets of London and other major cities ensuring that we reach out to those who live on the streets.
Another major part of my role with this fellowship was to find employment for those who wanted to come off the street. We were able to give them a home, and feed them. Finding them work was a huge step in getting them to a place where they felt confident again.
My role here was to look after the people that we found lonely and homeless on the streets of London. As a Street Pastor working Soho, Theatreland and leicester Square areas of the capital city I came across a lot of people who needed to be cared for. I would take them back to our group homes and ensure that they had access to medical help, clothing a warm bed and most importantly they would be in need of feeding. One of my main duties was to make sure that everyone who walked through our doors had something nourishing to eat.
I was employed as a chef at a variety of the holiday centres; I was able to look after customers who came fully inclusive, and those who came to the centre self-catering. For the self-catering clients we had to attract them as a normal restaurant would, this meant that the brigade had to be good in most areas of the kitchen to cover each others shift.The fully inclusive customer also needed to be made feel as if they were special. After one season with this holiday firm I was put in charge of the kitchen, working on the direction of an Executive Chef.
I started working at this hotel looking after the vegetable section, and helping with the preparation of afternoon tea. During the evening my role was to assist the chef with service, and was also given the secondary role of managing the health and hygiene of the catering areas. After a month in this post I was put in charge of our breakfast kitchen, ensuring that all over-night guests had a good quality breakfast.
I was able to work in all sections of the kitchen, and also with the operatives that looked after the vending machine department. I believe that the scheme was worthwhile as I managed to gain vocational qualifications that I might not have down without working here.
Norwich City Train Station
I am currently writing a feature article on the above train station and its history. What is fascinating, if people have time, is to look around their locality and find out the history.
If anyone has any information concerning the above please contact me and let me know.
Currently working on a series of novel. You might have guessed it looking at the other projects, this is also crime related. the novels follow the works of the fictitious Serious Crime Team in South Wales.
Whole-Life Orders: the rights and wrongs.
The Government allow the Judiciary to continue sentincing men and woment to whole life orders. The Europeans Court of Human Rights has said that this wrong. The articles looked at questions about what options the ciourts have if these orders are taken away.
What Motivates an Arsonist
This is a brief non-scientific look at arson. I have spoken to arsonists who were undergoing treatment at HM Prison Grendon. The reasons shocked me, yet their openess to talk encouraged me.
