About this author

I have been writing on and off for a number of years, drawing on my spiritual beliefs and folk tales I have heard from around the world during my mad pretend-hippy days of back-packing around the globe.

I finally became a responsible adult (after living in a bus like a refugee from a Cliff Richard movie) and settled back on the Isle of Wight.

I took up work as a psychiatric nurse and this always took precedence until at the ripe old age of fifty-five, I decided to retire and go part-time so that I could finally work on the books I have been writing over the years.

I am a Pagan priest and an ordained minister of the Church of Spiritual Humanism.

I write for pleasure and now I want to share that pleasure with you. I hope these books bring you as

Well - this was a washout... literally. Rain, rain, rain and - guess what - more rain. But on the bright side I did manage to sell two more copies of "A Rising Darkness" and there was a lot of general interest in the book.

Got two excellent reviews from BlueInk and Clarion ForeWord - not so pleased with the Kirkus Review because, well, it wasn't so much a review as a synopsis of the foundation c... Read more of this blog post »

Description: IMAGES is a collection of short stories written between 1972 and 1991. Some are true; some are fiction written from inspirations and dreams. “Sudden Frost” is true. Love does not come often to a man’s life – some of us never find it at all and ‘make do’ with a compromise. I have been fortunate; Love has entered my life three times. ‘Mick’ was my second. He appeared in my life quite unexpectedly – and he left the same way. I wanted to share our story with my readers so that any of you out there who have had a similar experience will know that you are not alone. Some of the names and locations have been changed – as the old saying goes “to protect the innocent.” “The Boy with Hazel Eyes” is also a true story, as is “Love for Sale” The others? I leave that for you, the reader, to decide. IMAGES is a collection of short stories written between 1972 and 1991.
