Meet the Author

I've spent much of my career in the Mid-East, where I worked as an HR consultant and successfully self-published and marketed business software. These days, back in the UK, I'm interested in battling unemployment, and I set up small businesses to show others how they can do the same.


Smashwords is an important publishing platform for my creative writing - because it allows me to retain total control over what I publish and what I charge for my work. I'm not planning to release print versions of the work published here.


My latest commercial venture combines my business and creative interests. I'm publishing other people's poetry - specifically 'words of inspiration' - as wall-art. Find out more at coloringthewind.com

    I liked this. It took awhile to figure out it was a cloud. I recommend this short story.
