A little about myself ... I'm from Yorkshire. My family has always been miners but sat the same time they have been storytellers. Some time ago I was challenged to write my stories down, which started the cycle all over again.
Storytelling comes from my Grand-dad. When he was alive bedtimes were always filled with the wonder that he created. Imagine the scene, this massive miner would lie on the bed with us kids; moments later we would be drawn into the magical worlds that he created. I guess it stuck.
