I am a writer and nostalgia obsessive with a fascination for all things historical. In 2018 I completed an MA in Creative Writing at Leicester University and I loved every minute of it.
Since 1998 I have been lucky enough to have a wide variety of poems, books and articles published and there are still quite a few works-in-progress on my computer...... so watch this space!
When I was young, Mum and Dad sold jewellery on Leicester Market. I’d sit beneath their stall and watch the skip boys hauling laden containers, the lightbulb man fixing bulbs into swinging flexes and stilettos click clacking on the cobbles.
A quadragintal is a blog of exactly 40 words.
Leicester Market is the largest outdoor covered market in Europe.
