Luke grew up in Fareham England.  He attended Fareham Park Infant School, Fareham Park Junior School and Fareham Park Comprehensive School which later became The Henry Cort Community College.

A59C7120-36AA-4140-B29C-3E0C79EE1DBAI first ‘met’ Luke when he published a post in our Fareham Park Comprehensive School group on Facebook.  He was asking for short-stories or photos about Fareham Park School for a book that he was writing. Through this post, Luke and I became friends. 

img_0042I learned that Luke was a writer and a professional blogger.  Some of the things that Luke writes about include:

  • Events in his childhood that made a lasting impression on him;
  • Growing up gay in a society in which this was not only unacceptable but also a cause of ostracism;
  • His experiences of dealing with bipolar;
  • Being bullied in school and in the workplace; and
  • Challenges of emigration to Spain and becoming acquainted with the Spanish culture.

Luke’s writing shows great bravery,  courage and honesty.  He has a great love for writing and has been writing since he was ten years old.

Luke loves books. In his blog ‘Roaming Brit’, he says:

I loved books The touch and feel, the smell, the words of people, many people, now gone, but the books a reminder of who they once were, a living memory of lives, no longer there. Books telling stories, of bravery, love, anger and pain, books with a past and permanent future that we can always dip in and out from, at will. Taking a little bit of someone we never knew, with us, on our journey through life.

I hope that you will enjoy Luke’s articles published both in Once Upon A Wren and also in Roaming Brit.
