I am a 68 year old disabled amateur part-time writer living in Slough, Berkshire UK.

I live with a range of health issues including heart disease, chronic kidney disease, coeliac disease, Type 2 diabetes, depression, atrial fibrillation and restless leg syndrome. (I'm working my way through the medical dictionary!).

I'm a member of Slough Writer's Group which is interesting and informative.
