Portrait of Lee by Eric Morgan as inspired by his reading of The Dangerous Bride.

Welcome to my website. This website is all about literature and writing, which really means – about living an ‘examined’ life, to paraphrase Socrates. Here I share some of my favourite books, writing resources and exercises, my published works and my blog ‘The Writing Life’, where I write about what I have learned about writing from the books I read, writers I meet and from my ongoing trial-and-error practice. I also blog about all I don’t manage to learn about writing despite my daily efforts.
