Born in the swamps of Glamorgan, I have wandered the world, generally with a guitar in hand.
Here I am in a beautiful village in central Spain, where the sun shines, the lake is warm, the drink is cheap and the people and animals are friendly.
I share my place with two gorgeous local cats, more guitars than I can count and a fridge full of wine.
Oh, and I write stories. Many of them about Otis King, Memphis' Number One Welsh Blues detective. Others about Angels, murderers, failed Super-Villains and ingrowing toenails.
I'd be happy if some of my stories amused you for a while.

USA 2636
UK 2975
DE 15
FR 4
IT 4
JP 3
IN 12
CA 27
AU 7

The canoes is a bastard.....suck it up I guess!


message 1: by Zoë

Zoë Sharp Hi Andrew. Thank you for Friending me! Lovely to catch up with your happy smiling face here as well as FB. I'm shocked that you're not wearing a pink hat, though ...
