Profile Information

I`m now retired but spent my working life driving London buses, limousines, touring coaches, Rolls Royce cars for a repair shop, in fact anything with a wheel on each corner. It`s an irony that after a lifetime on the road I`m now housebound but it gives me time for my two main hobbies, writing and CGI

My taste in reading is fairly all encompassing, from crime fiction to biography, humour to fantasy. In fact the last two come together in the Discworld series which I must have read at least three times each. I have to be careful when writing fantasy myself that I do not stray into obvious Pratchett country.

I approach this site with some trepidation. I had a pretty short education, with a school record for truancy and getting out of there as soon as I turned fifteen so I`m expecting some flack as far as grammar etc. is concerned. Be gentle with me. One thing that may seem strange is that although I have a PC almost all my writing is done on an iPad, including a 130,000 word novel. I just find it more comfortable and if you`re a one finger typist like me, it`s no disadvantage.

So that`s me.
