My interests are quite varied. You could call me a polymath (if you wanted to use a big word), but that implies I'm an expert. It might be better to say I take an amateur interest in lots of things, and I draw on them in my writing.
I’m a keen birdwatcher and take a general interest in nature and the countryside, often combining this with an enjoyment of walking. I holiday all over Britain, but every October I visit The Isles of Scilly for the autumn bird migration. I’ve also birdwatched in over a dozen countries.
At school, I was good at swimming, once representing Wiltshire in an inter-county gala. I only do it recreationally now. I’m a keen cyclist and do about the distance of Land’s End to John O’ Groats each year (though in lots of little bits).
