I was born in the UK and after getting made redundant from Vauxhall Motors in Luton, now live and work in Western Australia as a Business Improvement Coach. During spare moments between being a husband, father, dog walker, mature student, football player and improvement coach, I like to dabble with writing and photography.
Writing 1 hour a day, for the past 3 years, I have written an adventure travel book called Round the Bend.
Mr Benn, the bowler hatted, animated cartoon character was my inspirational childhood adventurer. He would leave his home in Festive Road and head to a nearby fancy dress shop. Once dressed up, Mr Benn would walk through the green door that always led to adventure in a faraway land.
After two decades of waiting for another adventurer to take his place on TV, up popped Michael Palin, who showed me the intriguing world that lay through the departure gates at Heathrow airport.
After getting made redundant I decided to explore, create and share my own experiences and hopefully this will encourage others to do the same.
Although writing travel stories is my original passion, I have realised that creative writing can encompass many genres and I’m now working on children’s stories.
best of luck with your venture,
