In the main I write to please myself because I find it therapeutic. However, when others tell me they also enjoy what I’ve written it’s icing on the cake.
Bio in brief
Born in the early fifties I travelled across the African continent because my father worked for the British government. Settling back in the UK in the late fifties. I spent forty plus years in public service before retiring to Northern Ireland with my wife and four kids and a collection of animals.
At a personal level, I have always been fascinated by science fiction and supernatural incidents and spent more than twenty years researching predictive systems including Tarot cards together with a variety of Asian astrological concepts. Additionally, I trained in Tai Chi Chung eventually becoming an instructor in my own right. The martial art provided me with a glimpse of the energy that surrounds us all on a daily basis and how it was possible to connect with it.
Now in retirement. I fill my time with hobbies that include:
Collecting modern classic cars
Writing novels and short stories in the following genres: crime, fantasy, political satire, science fiction, supernatural and, westerns.
Read as much as possible. Most usually all the genres I also write about. Also, keeping up-to-date with how politics is played out both in the UK and US.
