I am an independent writer and publisher with a particular interest in classic fiction. My many years of academic study and school-teaching have made me very good at writing about literature, as you can see from the free material I’ve made available on the ‘English Resources’ page of this blog.
My goal is to help as many people as possible to enjoy classic fiction, always bearing in mind C S Lewis’ astute comment in The Horse and His Boy:
‘in Calormen, story-telling (whether the stories are true or made up) is a thing you’re taught, just as English boys and girls are taught essay-writing. The difference is that people want to hear the stories, whereas I never heard of anyone who wanted to read the essays.’
