I’m a writer. I write all kinds of things. I have done, and sometimes still do, all kinds of other things for money, like art and publishing, web design and soap-making, teaching, film-making, toolmaking, shopkeeping, programming, planning, market-trading, housekeeping, acting, directing, photography, managing, driving, cooking, labouring, decorating . . . (there is more)
I’ll have a go at anything me.
The purpose of this website is to publish things that I write and sometimes to display things that I paint. I don’t really post any personal stuff because it’s all about the writing.
But, some people like know a little about the background of the writer or the artist so here’s a brief bio:
I was born at the end of 1951 in Llanelli, South Wales. After the usual childhood and adolescent shenanigans I settled down. Well, perhaps settled down is stretching it a bit, since I’ve been chasing one dream or another ever since.
I started writing in my early teens, mostly poetry, some short stories. Then one day in my early twenties I forgot to write. Two decades passed. Then I stumbled across an ancient notebook in the attic and flicked through it. True.
What I read changed my life, it was like a message from my younger self telling me to stop messing around and get stuck into some writing.
So I did.
