Hey, I’m Luke, a teacher, writer and wannabe adventurer from Nottingham in England.
One thing I love is helping people (like you, maybe?) realize and relish in their creativity. We are all creative, sometimes that just gets lost beneath the pressure of life.
Even though I always knew I wanted to be a writer, it took me until my thirties to put pen to paper. The purpose of my courses are to help you, whoever you are, explore that creativity.
Having taught English in a secondary (high) school for the last few years, I know what makes an inspiring and engaging lesson. Recently, I have been fortunate to be able to reduce my hours at the school to complete a masters’ degree, write my novels and spend time with my friends and family.
I write thrillers about a missing persons’ detective. I love to visit exciting places and think of how my protagonist, Leo Keane, would get on there.
I hope to see you in one of my courses soon.
