The patterns underlying life fascinate me. I enjoy discovering and sharing knowledge about the basis of reality, the nature of consciousness and the Mind, the power of intent, the purpose and power of symbolism and especially sacred geometry.

‘The Gateway Series’ of books I am writing are all based on extensive research into a wide range of subjects covering different cultures and disciplines; as I endeavour to blend logic, creativity and intuition in my work. In this Series the sacred geometry of the Gateway to the Heavens model is the central theme.

Numerate and creative I have a Jnt Hons in Mathematics and Management Sciences, and an Msc, both from Manchester University UK. Originally I spent many years in international marketing. Once th

On a couple of occasions this has been for one or two years. A fresh mind works wonders when you are feeling stale and your brain can't think clearly.

Personally, I don't lack the ideas, if anything I have too many and this can be a distraction. It is the frustration of putting my ideas down coherently that can be a problem.

You may need to re-write your book several times (I re-wrote my first one three times and went through rounds of editing), or you may not even take it to a publisher. It is basic business sense to make sure you have an excellent product first and foremost as it is a competitive marketplace. Then comes even more commitment, perseverance, plus hard work in promoting your book and yourself. The other magic ingredient is 'luck'; that interview that raises your profile or a prolific blogger spreading the word. You can encourage luck your way by being visible in social networking, getting out-and-about talking about your work, writing articles and so forth. On that note, good luck!(less)
