Good luck England!

Although I cannot claim to be a fan of football, or for that matter of sport in general, I'm too lazy to participate and believe I have more important things to do than spectate but it is my fervent hope that the English football team will be triumphant in their match tonight. There is so much that is wrong in this world today, yet our multi-racial team shows what can be achieved when people work together regardless of the many differences it takes to make us all human. Go England.

Amazon pricing


I have learned today that due to Amazon's policies I am unable to offer the first book in the Daniel Tremaine series 'Fugitives in Time' free of charge through them. Whilst they do not guarantee to match a lower price for the same work available elsewhere, if enough feedback is received, I am hoping they will do so. That said a Kindle format download is available free from Smashwords here

Free books

The first novel in the Daniel Tremaine trilogy is now available for FREE download from Kobo and Smashwords.

Self assessment?

I have often said that modesty is NOT one of my failings of which I am certain there are many.

Reasons to be cheerful (Ian Dury & The Blockheads 1979)

I write not in the hope of achieving fame or fortune, I know the potential for either is infinitesimal, but for the simple pleasure it gives me, the satisfaction I get as each chapter is finished and the joy of reading the finished work. Selfish perhaps, yet by sharing the results of my efforts, there is always the possibility that others might find that I’m not entirely egotistical.

Literature & Learning

It's my belief that all literature is a source for learning, it falls to each of us to determine its worth. No matter how brief, I value the periods of pure escapism I get from reading a work of fiction as they help me to survive the realities of modern life.

On writing.

A.A.Milne 1882-1956. Winnie-the-Pooh (1926) ch.6 My spelling is Wobbly. It's good spelling but it Wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places. Winnie-the-Pooh (1926) ch.10 Eeyore was saying to himself. "This writing business. Pencils and what-not. Over-rated, if you ask me. Silly stuff. Nothing in it."
