I grew up in an abusive home and therefore it was never on the cards that I'd go on to become a professional hotel pianist, traveling the world and playing in some of the very best hotels.

It was even less predictable that I'd one day play in the presence of President Bill Clinton, and call him Pister Mresident!

I have almost been killed in a storm on a ship, in a car, and by the Asian tsunami or 2004

I've experienced the very best, and the very worst.

Now, aged 45, I've decided to sit down and write my memoirs.

I'm posting excerpts here with the aim of getting feedback from avid readers such as yourself.

How do you find my writing? Does it flow? Is it interesting and entertaining? Would these excerpts persuade you to buy my ebook of what will be around 600 pages for seven or eight dollars when it's finished?

Your constructive criticisms and comments will be much appreciated!
