Lynda Nash


Quite a long time ago, Lynda was born in the South Wales Valleys. At the age of six she wrote her first story, 'The Green Bone' and she recently discovered a book of poetry penned during her teenage years – full of angst, and adoration for Steve Harley (hopefully, her writing has improved since then!). Lynda's published works are: ‘Not as Pointless as You Think (humorous short fiction), Ashes of a Valleys Childhood (poems about growing up in the valleys) and Danny Down the Drainpipe (a picture book). Right now she's writing a novel as part of Swansea University's PhD course – (she's written other novels but they're either not finished or not publishable). She likes writing that doesn't explain itself, and is pedantic about present participles and sentences that include 'As'. When she isn't writing, Lynda juggles family life with teaching English Language GCSE and Creative Writing in adult education colleges and tutoring Little Writers Inc (a Newport-based writing group). Her other joys of life are cake, cats, kids, snow, Guinness and Ireland, which is where you’ll find her if she ever goes missing.
