I think I’ll keep the tradition and leave the older ‘about me’ stuff below… The latest update:
14th October 2021 (should have done this ages ago… Oops)
I am finishing a PhD in historical creative writing. I am now married and use the name Cleaver as well as Murray for the writing. We are renovating the house after having an extension done (it is almost finished) and I have moved to South Wales…
I have 4 kids now, all adult, yes this does mean I am the step mom, but I refuse to be evil.
The soft toy company is gone and I just write and draw now. Hopefully I will be able to draw more as soon as the house is finished. At the moment the area that will be the studio is full of the rest of the house as we decorate.
Still dyslexic, dyspraxic and on the autistic spectrum. Coping with all of these and luckily so is my husband.

I am leaving the old blurb below so you can see where I’m from, but as of this morning (13th March 2014) I have handed in my dissertation which means that I am on my long walk into the real world.
When I say real world I am still talking about writing. I can’t think of doing anything else. Now it is just whether I will survive. And although you might call me optimistic I think I will. I hope. 😀

I am a **** something writer who is new at this… And this is the reason I am studying for the masters and who I am:
I run a soft toy manufacturing company and I’m an artist. Both of these companies are successful. I would like to include author to the list but, using an art metaphor, I feel that although I know how to stretch a canvas I have only one colour paint to work with.
I live in west Wales in a small place called Tregaron. We normally get snowed in every year for about three days despite living on a bus route. I have a dog and cat, both ginger (accidental) and I help run a smallholding with my parents. We are mostly self-sufficient for veg and we raise our own animals (yes for meat).
When I can I write, when I’m not writing I make toys or paint pets. Any spare time I sleep.
