Writing is simply the continuation of a conversation. It arises out of conversation, ten thousand different ones, and continues conversation, ten thousand different ones.

Whether it’s been my newspaper pieces or books, I’ve met or heard from so many people simply through putting words on a page… and that’s both wonder and privilege. The writing itself must be carved from solitude, but it never leaves me there.

Here on the site I offer my monthly newsletter, my weekly columns in the Church Times and my unpublished story The Village. Read at your leisure, and if something stirs, don’t hesitate to continue the conversation. Make it ten thousand and one.
