Thanks for dropping by. Please leave a comment, I’d like to get to know you. Have you seen my START HERE page? That's all about my books - this page is about me. There's also an interview featured on the NFReads website.
I’ve been writing poetry and making up stories since I was a child, but I only started to write seriously when my children were grown. My main ambition is to write science fiction, but along the way I got fascinated by local history and distracted by a major stroke (see here for my stroke recovery). However, I wrote poetry about my stroke and spent my recovery writing a local history book. Taking early retirement gave me more time to concentrate on my writing.
I’ve been married since 1974, and we have 4 children and 7 grand children. Although disabled with fibromyalgia, I was working almost full time until my stroke. Since then I found a new determination and persistence. Although I lost the use of my right arm and my right leg is impaired, it has focused my attention on the important things. I have been able to do so many things since.
My main occupation is writing. This is my professional blog, about my local history books and my science fiction series.
I used to keep a personal blog about my faith which I discontinued (the blog, not my faith!), but it's still there if you want to visit.
You can sign up to my mailing list and get occasional updates and a free book - check them out on my START HERE page.
In 2012 I was sixty, and I plan to make it the start of the rest of my life. I agree with Dylan Thomas, and will not go gently into the night. Who knows where it will lead?
