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.


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: October

I’m in the final stages of editing The Flower Angel which should be ready for Christmas.


I’m pleased to say that my wife has made an excellent recovery, but still has a long way to go before returning to her pre-wasp sting health. She now boasts the ability to walk at least as far as her favourite shop, which just happens to be the best jewellers in town!


There has been a conspicuous absence of wasps this summer, so I guess the one who stung her toe last August passed the word around!


You might have noticed the new copyright registration  logo appearing on my site. Up until now, I’ve been happy to make my work freely available with the only condition being the inclusion of   appropriate credit, but sadly, I find my paintings appearing on Pinterest and other sites without mentioning my name.





Thank you for all who supported us through  -
