Welcome to my World !
I'm a part-time amateur writer living and working in Langley in Berkshire in the UK.
I began writing in 1996 after having to retire from my career in the National Health Service due to heart disease. I've had a series of heart attacks and two heart bypass operations. Between 1996 and 2000, I contributed regularly to a number of UK leisure and lifestyle magazines. Many of these articles can be downloaded from the 'IN PRINT' section of this website. I've also contributed to some television programmes.
In 2007, I appeared in three episodes of ITV's WaterWorld.
