Richard Emery, why I am a writer. As a student I always enjoyed writing assignments but after I left school, college and university I had very little opportunity to write in most of my work situations, until I was working in the Court Service. During the early years there I wrote a series of gay short stories that I got paid for and were published. Some years later I wrote and gave a series of lectures on HIV/AIDS to the court service head office and several national bailiff conferences.

I have, from time to time, helped many students with exams – the standard of English being taught in Thailand in appalling with many of the Thai...
