Please note I'm extremely grateful to all of my existing followers and I want you all to know that I'm glad to have you on board.This blogging thing is a great way to make friends all over the world. Where else could you have a chat with people as far apart as North America, Australia, India and Hull (or even Wolverhampton!) all at the same time?
So. What is there about me that might be vaguely interesting?
I'm an ex-journalist and still earn my living with words, only now I'm PR officer for a charity.
Born in Essex but moved to seaside Yorkshire while still a babe in arms so I consider myself a tyke by default.
Nuts about history and historical places.
I have a degree in archaeology.
Read lots of crime fiction.
I'm owned by a pride of cats.
I live with a wonderful IT geek called K*****.
Write mostly short stories and flash fiction but have a couple of novels underway.
Have a number of online personae besides MorningAJ.
I make excellent soup.
I also make good jam and pickle.
If I hadn't become a journalist I have no idea what else I could have done. I don't like kids so I could never be a teacher.
I draw and paint (badly) and sew (even worse)
Can't sing to save my life.
Can order a beer in six different languages.
