Profile Information

Well, what to say? I dream constantly! If  it were possible to record on film even a fraction of the things I see daily in my mind, I would have several blockbusters in Hollywood. Unfortunately, that isn't possible! By the time I get to my computer to write down an idea, it has been replaced with a hundred others! And I am sure that all 'would be' writers have the same problem of 'seeing' or 'hearing' a story in their heads, only to find that they then struggle to translate it into prose!

Everyone has a story in their head, but few can successfully write it down and share it with the world. That is why stories are in big demand, because everyone has an active and creative imagination. A story creates an 'other' world, in which we can lose ourselves just for a moment. A desert island in our head, where we can escape the stress of daily life.

I can't be the only one who has often been unhappy with a new film, because I read the book first and found it difficult to adjust to the new characters portrayed by the film producers. This is the awesome power of the mind. We each have a 'Hollywood' between our ears in which we create our own virtual universe.

I am not a novel writer. I just write short....often very short....stories, as and when the mood takes me. I hope that when you read anything which I place here on 'Booksie' it takes you to that 'desert island' in your head, or that 'Hollywood' between your ears, for just long enough for you to escape your own world and for a brief moment, join mine! ;-)
