Rolling stone with most of my life spent on the move, living and working in places diverse as East Africa to South America. More recent activities have been based around the Mediterranean ranging from yacht chartering in Greece to fish farming in France. Currently living in the West Country but admit to itchy feet.

This is an extract from my new book A Case of Black Rock and other stories. I hope you enjoy it.

While walking the dog one morning it occurred to me how much he resembled my late Uncle Silas.

Private Lives (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 07, 2010 03:23AM
Description: From an ordinary childhood Charlie Parker rises to become chairman of one of the worlds biggest banking conglomerates, though he achieves it largely by accident. Private Lives tells Charlie’s extraordinary story along with flashbacks to the two previous lives he refuses to acknowledge, dismissing them as mental aberrations. But try as he might to ignore them he finds himself living more and more in the past as a rifleman fighting Napoleon’s armies in Spain then later as a young 1939 Oxford undergraduate forced to leave his studies to become a fighter pilot in the Battle of Britain. This is a story of love and laughter, heartache and sorrow that transcends centuries to a joining of the many threads in final understanding.
