Gayle Letherby

I am a writer in various ways. I am a sociologist who publishes mostly in the areas of reproduction and non/parental identity; methodology and travel and transport. I  have been writing fiction and prose for a few years now and draw on my own experience - both personal and academic - in my work. Other inspriations come from the books I enjoy and the news items that make me cross. I've have recently begun to also write short pieces of memoir.
