I am a 66 year old disabled part-time writer living with my civil-partner Simon in Langley, Berkshire UK.

I have published around 50 articles in 20 leisure and lifestyle magazines, both in the UK and a couple in the US. I am currently working on my autobiography, 'RESPECT' , samples of which you can download by clicking here.

I live with a range of health issues including heart disease, chronic kidney disease, depression, atrial fibrillation and restless leg syndrome. (I'm working my way through the medical dictionary!).

I'm available to give talks on 'Writing for Magazines' to groups, clubs, organisations etc in East Berkshire and West London. Click here for further information.
