Writing tips

NEW Writing

I am in the middle of my second draft of a new project about the Arctic Convoys of the Second World War.   My research will be taking me from Plymouth, England to Loch Ewe, Scotland and hopefully further afield.  You can find out more about what I am currently writing here.

And I hope these resources will help you with your writing…
