Creative writing tutor, writer, blogger and freelance editor

Hello. I'm Morgen With An E, a writer for over ten years (although I do remember writing a story about an ampersand when young and dabbling with limericks in my 20s, and I've always had my head in a book; formerly Stephen King but my tastes have softened somewhat… to crime and humour). Apart from killing people on paper, I also blog, am a freelance editor, and tutor for Northamptonshire County Council's Adult Learning team providing evening / Saturday creative writing and I.T. classes to the general public aged 19+.
