I was a lighthouse keeper for 13 years but was made redundant in 1992. I am now retired and write poetry as well as my first book

Background Information

I was born in Kenya at the time of the Mau Mau uprising so as it was getting just a bit too hot., my father was posted back to the UK, and, until he retired from the army we stayed in Shropshire. I grew up in Basildon in Essex and at the age of 17 with nothing better to do; I too joined the army. I met my wife while still serving and we got married when I left.

I joined the Northern Lighthouse Board as a lighthouse keeper in 1979. Redundancy through automation forced me to leave the service in 1992.

Up until I retired from general work through ill health I have dipped my toes in all sorts of fields of employment yet never found the same kind of satisfaction and rewards with that of being a lighthouse keeper. Now I find the same kind of rewards from writing about lighthouse related subjects.

Birth Place
Gilgil,  Kenya

Nothing special for you, but for me help in raising three wonderful children and writing a book.

Additional Information

My book Star of the Four Kingdoms is going to be serialised and will be on sale shorlty. I have poems that can be heard on youtube.
