English teacher, avid reader and pretend writer. My interest has been the “word” and how it influences people, societies and the world. How words can be used, re-manufactured, deleted and in essence alter human experience, memory and the history of human kind. George Orwell was the true expert on this subject.
I’m also interested in the experiences of those we demonise on a daily basis, again using words. The experiences of the other and the use of words to create the other when the other is really as familiar and sometimes as boring and unremarkable as anyone on the mainstream streets of humanity.
As such, my interest is varied, from political to social and religious commentary and discourse.
