For instance,

I do this for no charge whatsoever, because I believe we should all give what we are capable of giving, and one day, one of the authors I’ve helped will sell a million books and remember me with a great big cheque (there is a PayPal button below if you would like to use it).

We can all dream!

Thank you for popping into my Website.

The top row of buttons take you to other sites where I publish my poems and short stories,

The Gallery pages show you some of my paintings, many of which portray my passion for the ballet.

While you are here, take a moment to around this site.

 Before you start,there is something about me you ought to know.

I call it my raison d'être - my purpose or reason for being.

I am here with time to spare which I give freely to  support, help, advise or guide fellow writers and artists whenever and wherever I can.

Free = You don’t pay a penny!

So take your time, enjoy your visit and remember, if there is anything I can do to help you, just ask.

If time and my health allows, consider it done.

Here are some of my paintings. There are more paintings in oil, water colour and pastel on the gallery pages.



I guess I’m the same as all writers in that I want to know what my readers think about my work.

When you have finished reading one of my books, please consider leaving a few words in a review.

I’ve taken the plunge…

Okay, you don’t believe me, but it’s true.

All you have to do is ask.

If I have the time and the task is within my capabilities, it will be done.

Of course, there’s a catch. These days, I can’t work longer than a few minutes at a time before succumbing to exhaustion, so these activities take me a tad longer to complete.

I don’t work under pressure.

So now you believe me. I am a disabled wreck of a man who will probably never be fit enough for full time work again, but I do have a couple of brain cells which are not yet ready to give up.

If I can use them to help a fellow writer or artist, I will.
