Whilst driving a million miles over my forty years in construction sales, I listened to countless plays, serialisations and talking books. When I retired, I cast about for something meaningful to achieve. Spurred on by my love of storytelling, I decided to write. How difficult can it be, I thought? Very, I found.
Writing has led me to explore the complexities and vagaries of growing older; how you are viewed by society and how you view yourself. I am also inspired by the rich history and beauty of The Ironbridge Gorge, my home.
I’m passionate about Rugby and interested in Cricket, train journeys, photography and bird watching.
I have a wife, four children, two step children and a dog all of whom have been massively supportive.
