Trust me, I’m a doctor!

I did a PhD in Creative Writing-Critical Research and an MA in Creative Writing (prose fiction) from the University of East Anglia, one of the more hallowed places for the study of the subject anywhere in the world. I have a published novel.

I end with a photograph that I hope is as inspirational as it is sweet. Our little dachshund, Saaya, had a slipped disc, was operated on and recovered, almost fully, which is to say 80 per cent of what she was before. You can see the scar running down her long back. She keeps going – wagging her tail and taking joy in her umwelt, her perceptual universe, as per the semiotic theories of biologist Jakob von Uexküll.

Come with me, as we do the same by joining the dots and connecting global events to books.
