I’m completely torn about whether this About Me page should be in first person or third. Professionals say it should be in the third person. It’s more “professional”. Mmm. I did it in third person and I think I just sounded strange. I blog in first person. I write in first person, so now, my ‘About Me’ page, is, going to be, yes, you guessed it, in first person.
I live in Nottinghamshire with my family and two Cockapoos Alfie and Lola, who keep me company while I write. I need to drink copious amounts of tea to function throughout the day and if I could, I would survive on a diet of tea and cake while committing murder on a regular basis.
After 16 years service, I was recently medically retired from the police service where I finished as a detective constable on a specialist unit.
My first crime novel, Shallow Waters is set in Nottingham. The lead protagonist is DI Hannah Robbins. Because the novel is written in first-person narrative you get a pretty good feel for who she is.
I live with the genetic disorder Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and secondary disorder Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. Both of which can cause day-to-day issues, but neither of which will stop me writing.
I blog about my writing, policing, social media, occasionally the above disorders and anything else that springs to mind. It’s a loosely connected place inside my head and it’s possible anything could come out. I would genuinely love to see you around and to hear your thoughts.
