About Me

I am married to Graeme with four teenage children. I love writing and find writing in a prayer journal to be very helpful. After two MAs (p/t and gained ten years apart) (Creative Writing and Children's Literature) and doing lots of jobs, including  5 years of being a carer for my mum until she passed away in May 2014, I am grateful to God that I have an agent and have now published two children's books. I am trying to use my writing gifts to further the values of the Kingdom of God and to promote Love and Justice and Compassion. My first, 'Girl with a White Dog' (Catnip) (9-12 yrs) was published in March 2014 and has been nominated for the Carnegie and other children's awards. My second 'Lucy's Secret Reindeer' (O.U.P.) (5-8 yrs) was published in Oct 2014.  My first picture book for Nosy Crow (The Fairiest Fairy), ilustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw, will be published in June 2015 and I am editing my second picture book for them. My second book for Catnip 'Dog Ears', about a young carer, should be out in April 2015, and my second book for OUP 'Lucy's Magic Snowglobe" in October 2015, so I feel very blessed and slightly run off my feet after many many years of not being published ! I am 50 in 2015 and have always wanted to be a writer, and being a late starter has made me very happy and not take naything for granted! I have completed a novel for adults which I would love to have published, but life is so busy with family life and writing children's books I have to put that in God's hands. I tweet as @Bridgeanne and have found twitter a great blessing and help to getting published.

About Me

I love writing...i tend to write more on the themes of inspiration, prayers, photos (which i take myself) and little blogs and sometimes my understanding of scripture...

i dont see myself as religious but more christian..which is the term i am comfortable with...

I love reading...but tend to read more slowly these days...maybe age is something to do with it...it will normally take me about a month now to read a book, where as in the past I could read several books a week...

i am looking to eventually publish a book, but am just a novice in this area, and so being a member of this site is a step in the right direction...and a great encouragement for me and am looking forward to growing...

About Me

I took up writing in the mistaken belief that it would be easier than a real job (it isn’t). Hence, as well as being the author of 4 novels under my own name, and ghostwriter of several more (which annoyingly pay more), and several short stories, I am also a technical writer amongst other skills.

I live in Abingdon and worship at Christ Church on Long Furlong. My homepage is at www.benjeapes.com.

About Me

I have written four Christian biographies - the life of Gladys Aylward, the missionary who went to China in the 1930's, George Muller, who founded childrens homes in Bristol for thousands of children, whose work was funded completely by faith, Frances Ridley Havergal, the English hymn-writer who wrote many hymns, some of which we still sing today and Mary Slessor, the Dundee born missionary who went to the Calabar, Nigeria.

About Me
I have known the Lord as my Savior since I was 5. Now I am 56. In all these years I have found HIM all suffient to meet my needs. My wife, Ruth and I have raise 2 wonderful children. They are now both out on their own. I have always been fascinated by good conversations. I believe that good story-telling is part of that. I have not published anything yet. I hope to refine my craft through the assistance I can receive here at ACW. I also look forward to assisting anyone else by reviewing their works. So let me know if you have anything you would like me to look over.

About Me

Between 2002 and 2007, I spent five years as a  part-time Freelance Wiriter exploring different writing formats, firstly in Orkney and then in Devon. During that time, I was a member of ACW and covered jouralism (press and radio), crossword compiling, publicity planning, hymn witing, study notes, stand-up comedy, poetry and blogging.

Returning to a full-time IT role, I supported my local church editing the weekly newsletters, designing and building their website, and organising their publicity team. I also preached regularly and lead adult and children's Bible studies.

After 2013, I developed psoriatic arthriris in my ankles, knees, wrists and one elbow, which also caused severe fatigue, so I stopped writing formally while I concentrated on having enough energy to get to work every day. However, I continued to write a personal blog and communicate with friends and family via Facebook (where I rediscovered ACW), and more recently created a blog to write about faith topics.

After medication and controlled exercise has helped to reduce the joint stiffness and general fatigue, I'm looking at returning to writing more formally, starting with crossword compiling and poetry. More ideas welcome.

About Me

I'm the author of the D.I. Costello series of murder mysteries published by Lion Fiction.

Also, for several years until recently, I wrote for the pilgrimage handbook of the (Westminster) diocese to Lourdes.

I'm currently beginning work on an exciting new project, a new series of novels, which I hope will run concurrently with the Costello books.
