I am a writer of children's books 'Tommy's Shadow' and 'Tommy meets Tom Thumb'. I am currently working on another Tommy Story (Tommy goes on holiday), an autobiographical novel and two crime novels. I also, write poetry, prose and monologues. I live in the Staffordshire Moorlands with my better half and my cat, and wild ducks are frequent visitors. My other interests involve music and singing


Background Information

As a child Enid Blyton and Robert Louis Stevenson were my favourite writers, from the age of 7 I started my own personal library - lending books to my friends a short periods of time and charging them when they returned books late.  I spent many hours writing stories and sharing them with my friends.   I was a prolific storyteller.  One of my favourite stories in those days was 'The railway children'.  While at University I came to appreciate Wilfred Owen, Seigfried Sassoon and Sylvia Plath.  Nowadays, I simply appreciate good writing, modern or old.  I am a fan of CSI and other crime series whether for reading or watching on TV - not that I watch an awful lot of TV,  I love reading and writing, and I love singing but that's another story.

I have two children's books on Amazon available to buy in paperback and to download to kindle: 'Tommy's Shadow' and 'Tommy meets Tom Thumb', and a monologue 'Confession'., with a collection of monologues and a story called 'The Gillvined Travellers' about to be published.   I also have a poetry book on lulu.com with a second poetry book on the way simply called 'Words'., covering poetry, prose and song lyrics..  I love the way lulu.com into hardcover format.

I am currently working on another Tommy story, my autobiographical novel 'Dead Memories, Shattered Lives',  and I have started on a crime novel known only as 'Waiting' to me at the moment, it involves murder, drugs, crime and prostitution and revenge - a good title will eventually rear its head as the story progresses.  My synopsis for this will be available to view shortly.  Another crime novel is on the back burner at the moment 'The Angel in the Well' - this started off as a short story but everyone has pressed me to turn it into a novel, so I will, eventually.

When I get ideas I have to write them down so I have many projects on the go at any one time and eventually one will be finished so I can move on to the next.   I also spend a significant amount of time editing a friends crime Novels but trying to juggle my own writing and editting others work is proving difficult although equally enjoyable.

I am taking a break from hubpages while concentrating on writing and publishing my autobiographical novel 'Dead Memories, Shattered Lives' see synopsis. I also have several other writing projects on the go so please be patient for my responses to your comments, I will check in once in a while and hopefully reply to everyone.

Dead Memories, Shattered Lives
My autobiographical novel - synopsis...I have about 12 chapters so far - unedited as such and mostly handwritten. The work is personally hard turning memories into fiction...

The Angel in the Well
Started life as a short story / sript but it was suggested I turn it into a novel so I have started breaking it down, adding to it...
