Hi, I’m Jim…

… a part-time teacher and urban design student currently residing in London.

I moved to Madrid immediately after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in History and French from the University of Manchester, going on to live, work & thrive there for over 3 years.

I began this blog at the start of the pandemic to document the highs and lows of life under quarantine in Madrid and how myself and those around me coped with Europe’s strictest confinement.

As Life Under Lockdown drew to a close, I decided to continue writing as part of a new project named Flash Stack Fiction which involves writing short stories on a weekly basis inspired by prompt images. More information about this project can be found in the tab titled Flash Stack Fiction or please visit http://www.flashstackfiction.com
