About Me

     I am a recently retired teacher.  I now have time to pursue many of the creative projects I had to put on hold while employed.  These include some children's story books, some meditations, some poetry and a bible study on Isaiah, particularly considering imagery used and how it fits into scripture as a whole.  I am thoroughly enjoying this time of freedom to experiment and explore.

     As for other interests, I also enjoy visual art work and am trying my hand at this as well.  Two of our three daughters have a variety of special needs which have led to my involvement in advocacy, education and social services for people with these challenges.  Gardening, family, reading, church groups and a bit of travelling fill the rest of my time.

About Me

My 20th book is currently in CWR's publishing pipeline ready for Christmas 2013. I started in 1989 with biographies -  several 'ghosted' - wrote some children's books and latterly some adult devotionals for SPCK. I've written articles, poetry, local history and done many BIble notes for BRF's 'Day by Day with God' plus some for CWR's 'Inspiring Women Every Day'.

As a past committee member and Vice-President of ACW, I had to lead writing courses and workshops, which showed me how much I enjoyed helping other people's confidence to grow through their writing.  For a decade now I have led four secular writing groups and Summer Writing Days in mid-Surrey,  where I live, plus several creative writing holidays per year, mainly in Christian venues. Details of all this, and my books, can be found on www.chris-leonard-writing.co.uk

About Me

I'm retired, living in Bournemouth, and at long last I have the opportunity to take writing a little more seriously.  So let's see where it leads . . .

About Me

Having been a book editor for 18 years, and written a book during that time, I have recently started concentrating on writing more since having my two kids. I now write regularly for magazines and bible study guides, work with others who ask me to help them with their own books and am also developing some further book ideas of my own. I am also enjoying editing Christian books much more regularly so am open to anyone who wants to employ my editorial services too! :) My website is www.clairemusters.com and you can email me at [email protected]

I have become a pastor's wife in the last couple of years (after my husband switched professions - he used to be a music producer) and my other passions are worship and seeing people reach their potential.

About Me

I've been a member of ACW for a few years now and attend the Thames Valley Group.  More recently I've also become part of the small group who are hoping to develop an Oxfordshire group. 

My writing has included articles and poetry, but recently I've concentrated more on fiction, and almost given up poetry. My novel Baby, Baby was published in 2010 and I am now working on a follow-up. I aim  to quietly challenge the assumptions of our secularised society.

I'm also an artist and my cards (from my own photos) are available from my website, www.hodgepublishing.co.uk

I've done all kind of things over time and while raising a family.  My academic background is in religious studies, art history, and social sciences. I love gardening and nature/biology and have 4 cats. And that is in addition to my involvement in our local church.

About Me

Born in 1958 in Liverpool, England. I was taught by the same English teacher as John Lennon, albeit years later, at Dovedale Road School. I am married and have three grown up boys. My wife Julie is a nurse.

I wrote my first indie novel, The Kestrel Strategy in 2011. The Metasis Strategy followed a year later. The Wrendian - Absolution, was completed in August 2014. My latest novel, The Wrendian - Red Corn, was completed May 2015.

Part of the proceeds from sales go to my fathers church, St Agnes. A church that taught me right from wrong. How to respect religion but question the various beliefs. It also taught me there's only good and evil on this earth regardless of which religious doctrine people follow.

 

I am honoured you have taken the time to read this and I thank you for your interest.

Colin B Leonard.

About Me

As a lifelong Catholic devoted to discovering a deeper understanding and appreciation of my faith it is no surprise that I have been drawn towards writing reflective articles exploring some of the questions Christians, and non-Christians, could be expected to ask about faith in God and His working in our lives. I'm pleased to say that the editor of a monthly Catholic magazine, 'The Crusader', values my contributions to the magazine and has so far published 16 articles in just over two years. I'm also working on a book on 'Forgiveness' and a YA novel titled, 'The Niece of the Fisherman' set in Palestine AD90.
