Welcome…

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, I will.

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!

We can all dream!



In the meantime, some visitors to this site have expressed their wish to send me a gift. I have therefore been persuaded to include a PayPal button. A PayPal account isn’t needed, as donations can be made using a credit/debit card.


Please take a moment to look around..... Before you start though, 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!


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


Creativity will take you to FanStory for my short stories and poems




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.

Thank you for popping into my Website.

While you’re here,  please take advantage of my

Free E-book offer.

There is no catch, just a  reason….

After three strokes, a heart and prostate problem, I have restricted abilities. I’ve been written off as incapable of work, so I’m in receipt of UK benefits. The Department of Work and Pensions have decreed that I cannot earn more than twenty pounds in any single royalty payment without having to notify them and have benefits reduced at some future date. I don’t want all that hassle.  I want readers to enjoy my novels, biographies, short stories and poems, so the best option seems to be to make all my work available for no cost.

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

REVIEWS


 


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.

Fan Message Update: I’m back, but not as fit as I would like.


Seems these TIA episodes are getting more frequent, however, I’m still as determined as ever to support, help, advise and guide authors and artists in any way I can.


While I was ill, my run of high-star reviews came to a crashing end as Suffer Little Children received a couple of 1* reviews. Still, a review is a review. Although my free novels have had thousands of downloads, and hundreds more have been bought at the minimum Amazon price, there doesn’t seem to be any enthusiasm to leave reviews.


Great news: I have recovered -
