Am planning to publish the first of these in the next 12 months. Trouble is, I prefer writing to promoting!(less)

I paint and play the guitar, somehow the themes all connect.

For non-fiction, it tends to be a commission, so that's not so interesting, but generally I have a desire to create something that works, or adds value, (the how-to music books) something that moves us on either in understanding or shining a light into previously dark places (mythology books).(less)

What is Time? Sunclocks

The use of the sun to approximate the time is as old as recorded time itself and there are many different methods of using the shadow created by the sun.

Quotes by Jake Jackson  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“the extraordinary growth of the influence of the religion of Osiris, which had spread all over Egypt by the end of the period of the sixth dynasty. This religion promised to all who followed it, high or low, rich or poor, a life in the world beyond the grave, after a resurrection that was made certain to them through the sufferings, death and resurrection of Osiris, who was the incarnation of the great primeval god who created the heavens and the earth.”
Jake Jackson, Egyptian Myths
