About admin

I'm from Cumbria originally and McKeating is my maiden name. Despite being happily married, I kind of like the idea of being published in my 'own' name. I enjoy reading a wide range of things, anything from Stephen King to the Brontes, with maybe a bit of Sarah Waters and P. D. James in between. Basically anything that is well written and can take you out of yourself for a little while. Most of all, I like a good story. I write because I enjoy it and if it other people enjoy reading, that's a bonus. I've been lucky enought to get a place on Literature Wales' mentoring programme for writers. As part of that, I'm fine-tuning a novel, with the guidance of an establshed writer. It's a darkly comic crime thriller, which may one day be in a bookshop near you. I also like gardening and running, both of which are great for switching off from everyday life. Oh, and tiramisu, which helps to balance out the running. Or vice versa. So that's me. Writing, running and tiramisu. Just not all at once.
