Profile Information

I am a single middle-aged man. I live alone with my beloved dog, Ozzy (that's him in my profile pic!)

I have been writing since I was a kid. I lost my mojo for several years, but about six months ago I began to write again. I believe that I am writing some of the best stuff I have ever written. I have a huge portfolio of work to publish here over the coming months, poetry as well as the stories, which I hope you will enjoy.

I am not one to solicit comments or followers: if you like - or even dislike - my work and feel compelled to comment or to contact me you are most welcome. I prefer good, well thought-out honest feedback to rather simplistic platitudes (i.e. "thank you for sharing"). Equally, you will receive the same from me. I do not pull my punches as I believe that if one is to leave feedback it needs to be truthful and helpful in some manner. Some folk have a problem with that level of honesty. I make no apolgies: if you put it out there you must be prepared to receive unvarnished critiques...

I have a good sense of humour, enjoy banter and word-play and hot debate. I am opinionated, stubborn and can be an ass at times. I amuse and entertain some and infuriate and annoy others. I am me and never pretend to be otherwise.

I am also a true and loyal friend who will stick with you through thick and thin and not, like some online 'friends', stab you in the back if the going gets tough. I am old enough, experienced enough and cynical enough to be in a position to listen, advise and support. 

Above all I let my writing speak for me.It's what I do best. If you do take the time to read my work PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT.
