I'm 5 foot 10, well nourished and with a happy disposition (life's too short to waste with regrets and melancholy). I currently reside in South Wales but hope to travel extensively in the future. I spent the previous twenty odd years in Worthing, Sussex.I served for twelve years in the Royal Air Force and since demob, in 1972, have been employed in insurance, retail and the building industry.I have always been interested in history and enjoy many of the programmes from the History channel. My reading tastes are varied, relishing stories from Dickens and Mark Twain to Jack Higgins and Frederick Forsyth. My musical tastes are very middle of the road with my favourite musical decades being the forties and fifties. Besides writing ( I'm never happier than when composing stories), my main hobbies comprise DIY and computers.This knowledge has enabled me to design my own website in which I divulge how my first novel came to be written and what research materials I used.
