Here I am, doing what I enjoy most.I've just finished a long walk through one of the most beautiful places in the world with two of my favourite friends in the world. In this picture, we are drying out in The Old Smithy cafe, our wet socks steaming on the radiator, large mugs of tea in our hands and in front of us a gut-buster Full English - salty bacon, fried egg, perfectly blackened sausages, mushrooms, tomatoes, baked beans and chips. These are the simple pleasures of an author's life in the Peak District!

I am just about to launch a new programme of environmental and literacy workshops for schools within the Peak District National Park.Look Where We Live is aimed at children growing up in the Peak District. The workshops give children the chance to tell the world what they think about their own environment.
Children explore their surroundings using environmental games, role play and other thought-provoking activities. They use descriptive writing, poetry, drama, illustration and video to communicate their thoughts and feelings to others. The best work will be published on the project website for friends, family, residents, visitors and environmental managers to see.
The workshops are supported by the Peak District National Park Authority and East Midlands Development Agency, under the Live & Work Rural programme.Come back soon to find out more!
