My books include the best-selling I’m a Teacher, Get Me Out of Here. I write extensively for the national press, and have appeared on TV and radio alongside everyone from Johnnie Walker to Russell Brand. I am well-known for being an honest and hard-hitting voice in the media.
I run a publishing company, FGI Publishing, which publishes cutting-edge fiction and non-fiction, including my own study guides and Roger Titcombe’s Learning Matters and Tim Cadman’s The Changes.

I studied at Sussex & Cambridge universities, before doing an MA in Creative Writing at the University Of East Anglia under Malcolm Bradbury and Rose Tremain.
