Hi! I'm Neil Hocking, a freelance writer from Torquay, England.
I was born in Penzance, the most south-westerly town in the UK, in the wild and beautiful county of Cornwall. I loved writing stories at school and came out of Mount's Bay comprehensive with A grades in both English Language and Literature. I then vacillated between writing and science as I tried to find my place in the world.
Writing has always been a big part of my life. I don’t think a day goes by without me picking up a pen. It has always fascinated me how minor changes in the words and phrases we use has a significant impact on the meaning we communicate.
I graduated from the Open University in 2010 with a Bsc (Hons) in Psychology (2:1).
Between 1996 and 1998, I studied Journalism,Film and Broadcasting at Cardiff University
