About Me

I'm in my late seventies, and I've been writing as long as I can remember. I've had nothing published, but I've self-published a book of poetry. I'm happily married to Toni, and we have tow children and four grandchildren.

About Me

Demented blogger, book, cheese & chocolate lover, dreamer, poet, short story writer, equal marriage supporter, mental health activist, Green Party member and vicarage lawn mower — is that enough to be going on with?

I run several blogs & websites, my personal blog at philgroom.wordpress.com, the UK Christian Bookshops Directory and its associated blog — predictably named the Christian Bookshops Blog — and, most recently (March 2015), I've set up the Christian Writers Directory, which aims to help bridge the gap between readers, writers, booksellers and publishers by providing an A-Z guide to the people who make the Christian book trade possible: the writers.

As an ACW member, you can register and be listed for half the normal subscription rate: £5 rather than £10 per year; and if you're quick off the mark and register before March 31st 2015, whilst the Directory is still under construction, your first year's listing is free.

Finally, you'll find me tweeting @notbovvered @UKCBD and @ChristianWriDi - I usually follow back, and that's a certainty if you let me know that you're a fellow ACWer :)

About Me

 I am now retired as a psychologist but still maintain a consultancy and support role.  I desire to write a blog sending out encouragement and insight to bring others up into a lighter life. My own writing came out of a need to pour out the deep emotions that had been festering inside me for years.  I see the benefit of journalling and keeping close to the Lord by writing to Him. He is gracious enough to write back - loving, kind, encourageing and always steadfast no matter how fickle I may be!  

I have written for Woman Alive in the past and contributed to other writing and counselling outlets.   We opened our house as a retreat facility for three years but now only welcome family and friends.

Previously my psychology work was as follows:

Many of the clients I support/train/mentor are people who sense that they are 'square pegs' trying to fit into our society andculture's 'round holes'. They are often highly gifted in an area that is not highly valued by those around them. Because of areas in life they struggle with, they may suspect they are dyslexic, dyspraxic, have attentional controlissues (ADD/ADHD), or be an 'Aspie' (Aspergers syndrome). They may have been assessed and given one such label or even a combination or all of them! To me an individual has their own unique profile, background, abilities andchallenges: being neurodiverse is about being different rather than dysfunctional.

 I first aim to assist the person accept themselves as they are - background,cognitive make up, particular strengths, weaknesses, differences to others,cross cultural issues - ... find out what their dreams, visions and goals are then design ways of heading towards their goals.  We can work together on self management and emotional control using cognitive behavioural coaching/therapy, compassion focussed therapy and mindfulness and attend to supporting their abilities and neurodiversity.  I can assist them to understand their type of personality and communication and relational styles (e.g. NEO-PI-R). I can be there during times of transition and challenge (by email, phone, Skype) as well as regular face to face meetings.

About Me

My first book was published by Glory to Glory publications in August 2012!!! Such an exciting moment!! YAY!!!

So - as a member of ACW, I obviously love to write... I also love to organise. So that's what I do, in a nutshell.

Until my debut book, I have been writing a Christian Teenage Girl's Magazine called SHINE which is published and distributed free of charge to girls accorss the world. It's such an honour to be able to use my hands to encourage others.

I also work for a Christian organisation - CMJ - and have the pleasure of writing for the website - as the website manager, and organising the annual Conference. My two favourite activities combined into the perfect job role!!! :-)

I am blessed with a wonderful husband and a gorgeous stepson (part time, as he lives with his mum). We love to take advantage of being so close to Sherwood Forest and the Derbyshire Peaks!
