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)
