About Me

Welcome to my blog, it’s great to have you here.

Thanks for your visit.

Following a career in the International Music Business, I’ve turned my

attention to a life-long ambition – writing full-time.

Now I fill my days writing and concentrating on developing my own

career instead of those recording artists, songwriters, and record

producers whose careers filled my every waking moment for decades.

I enjoy walking and photography and when I’m not writing I can often be found out and

about with my camera photographing places of interest such as our beautiful English villages,

churches, and cathedrals, wonderful stately homes and gardens, which I often blog about and

call my ‘jollies.’
