I'm a publisher and travel journalist by profession. Now I have more time I am returning to my first love, creative writing. I'm using the short story format to challenge myself, in order to fire up my imagination and to rediscover techiques (and hopefully some talent) that may serve me with my future writing plans. Paris Postcards is my first collection of short stories. I'm working on a novel at the moment.

Goodreads is such a great site - I just wish I had more time to write reviews, but even so I really value the reviews and comments others have written. I hope members enjoy reading these stories as much as I have enjoyed writing them.

I discovered the hard way that there is no such things as writers block.

Even on your bad days, your totally uninspired days, the moments you think "why am i doing this?", all you need to do is put down one word followed by another, one sentence followed by another. Just anything.

It's no different to looking at a mountain when you are down in the valley. It's easy to become despondent looking at how far you have to go or wondering whether you have the strength or courage. You just have to start by putting one foot in front of the other.

Once you do this then you will find one of two things will happen:

a) your writing is not very good that day, but hey, that's what re-writing is for.
or
b) miraculously, after the clunky stuff, sometimes the creativity kicks in and you are in the flow again

The Italians have a saying: "with food, comes appetite". I like that!(less)

I get to play God, creating characters and scenes that interest me, then changing them when they go astray!

Seriously though, C.S.Lewis said "we read to know that we are not alone". This is one of the great truths about reading (and writing) and I try to create subtle stories and characters born out of my own experience that I hope will resonate in some way with my readers.(less)
