Time travelling gay romance reminiscent of The Time Traveller's Wife.

I am a born and bred South Londoner immensely proud of my Cockney roots and very inspired by my family’s story which started in the slums of Whitechapel in the 1880's.
I now live in Dulwich with my beloved partner of 23 years, Neil and our loyal, affectionate,physic cat Max. I have enjoyed an exciting and eclectic adulthood, which started with a whiff of joss stick and flared jeans in the early 70’
