My name is Hugh. I live in the city of Swansea, South Wales, in the United Kingdom.
I'm a passionate blogger and have been blogging since February 2014. My blog covers a wide range of subjects, the most popular of which are my posts on blogging tips. I've learned a lot about the world of blogging since I first discovered it. All of the tips and advice I give are free of charge and will cost you nothing apart from, maybe, a little bit of your time.
I have always enjoyed writing, and the fact I suffer from a mild form of dyslexia has not stopped me from enjoying the passion I have for writing.
Now in my fifties, I thought it about time I let my writing become public. Becoming a blogger seemed to be the perfect way for me to do this. Blogging has put me in touch with hundreds of other writers, many of whom have been supportive and helped me with my writing.
I'm a member of the committee of the Bloggers Bash; a group set up to organise annual get-togethers for all bloggers. Held in London, we had our fourth event in May 2018. I'm delighted to say that details of the 2019 Bloggers Bash have now been announced and will take place on Saturday 15th June 2019 in London.
I lead a happy life and always try to stay positive. I share my life with John, my wonderful civil partner, and our two Welsh Cardigan Corgis, Toby and Austin.
I write about life because I find it so fascinating. I have many stories to tell, some of which I have started to put into a book. I think my life has been incredible and I want to share it with anyone who wants to listen. I am also an excellent listener, and I love to be interactive with other people. I guess you could say I am a ‘people person’.
You will find some of my short stories and flash fiction on my blog, and I hope you enjoy reading them. Flash Fiction has become a big part of my writing, and I enjoy participating in various writing challenges.
My first collection of short stories is available on Amazon. Glimpses is available as both a paperback and an eBook and contain 28 short stories and flash fiction full of twists, turns, and unexpected endings. The Kindle version is 99p.
My second collection of short stories and flash fiction, More Glimpses, will be available on Amazon from 28th March 2019.
