Jamie graduated from Bath Spa University in 2007 with a BA (Hons) degree in Creative Studies in English. He never gave up his dream of being a writer and – betwixt an endless succession of soul-deadening call centre jobs – spent the next fifteen years getting published in newspapers, magazines, websites, local papers and poetry anthologies.
However, as the old adage goes, the best things come to those who wait, and Jamie is now living the dream as a creative writer and blogger for Strategy. In his spare time he likes reading, cinema, theatre, art galleries, writing poetry, music, playing the piano, and adding to his ever-expanding collection of film soundtracks (yes, he is a bit of a nerd).
