About Me

I’m an English teacher and writer of novels, short stories, drama and poetry.

Born and brought up in Aylesbury in the UK, I developed a love for writing stories and reading English literature as a child, which culminated in me later becoming an English teacher in local secondary schools. In 2014, I published my first novel, the mystical thriller, The Hidden Ones, and thereafter I published a book of short stories and poetry. I have performed poetry and short story readings throughout the UK in various mosques and other venues.

I have taught English as a secondary school teacher for up to twenty years in the UK, holding positions like second in English, Head of Year, Whole School Literacy Coordinator, PGCE Mentor and Reading Projects Coordinator.
