My name is Gail Briggs. I am 45 years old and a mother of three. I live in Manchester, in the North West of England.
I love to write, but bringing up children, studying at university, and running a business have always gotten in the way, until now. I found that, once my children were old enough that they did not need me anymore, I had a lot of spare time on my hands. So, in 2011 I decided to enrol on a creative writing course with The Writers Bureau.
Joining a creative writing group on Facebook, with other students from the Writers Bureau, was a very good decision for me. We all support and help each other in ways that I have not encountered anywhere else. They have been invaluable to me, and I thank each and every one of them for the encouragement and support they have shown me. However, I have now left that group, and I hope they go from strength to strength.
The type of stories I love to read, and write, are supernatural stories. I write from both imagination and personal experience. I have advanced qualifications in parapsychology and have been on over 30 paranormal investigations where, yes, we encountered many spirits. It is an extremely interesting field of both study and experience, but is very difficult to write about. I will not shy away from the difficulties though, I am more determined than ever to do something when difficulties arise.
