Welcome…

Okay, you don’t believe me, but it’s true.

All you have to do is ask.

If I have the time and the task is within my capabilities, it will be done.


Of course, there’s a catch. These days, I can’t work longer than a few minutes at a time before succumbing to exhaustion, so these activities take me a tad longer to complete.

I don’t work under pressure.

So now you believe me. I am a disabled wreck of a man who will probably never be fit enough for full time work again, but I do have a couple of brain cells which are not yet ready to give up.

If I can use them to help a fellow writer, I will.

For instance,

I do this for no charge whatsoever, because I believe we should all give what we are capable of giving, and one day, one of the authors I’ve helped will sell a million books and remember me with a great big cheque!

We can all dream!



In the meantime, some visitors to this site have expressed their wish to send me a gift. I have therefore been persuaded to include a PayPal button. A PayPal account isn’t needed, as donations can be made using a credit/debit card.


Please take a moment to look around..... Before you start though, there is something about me you ought to know.

I call it my raison d'être - my purpose or reason for being.


I am here with time to spare which I give freely to  support, help, advise or guide fellow writers and artists whenever and wherever I can.

Free = You don’t pay a penny!


The Gallery pages show you some of my paintings, many of which portray my passion for the ballet.


Creativity will take you to FanStory for my short stories and poems




So take your time, enjoy your visit and remember, if there is anything I can do to help you, just ask. If time and my health allows, consider it done.

Thank you for popping into my Website.


Here are some of my paintings. There are more paintings in oil, water colour and pastel on the gallery pages.

REVIEWS


 


I guess I’m the same as all writers in that I want to know what my readers think about my work.


When you have finished reading one of my books, please consider leaving a few words in a review.

Fan Message Update: June  If you have followed my posts on this site, my blog or my posts on social media sites, you will know that in order to comply with conditions imposed by  the UK benefits system, I’ve been trying to avoid the distressing reporting procedure by making my novels free  to download. Although thousands of books have been downloaded, there have been few reviews. Some of the reviews have been great and applauded the high quality of my writing, but in March, my long run of stunning reviews came to a crashing end. A  book that was downloaded for free received a couple of vindictive 1 star reviews on Amazon.com. Another 1 star review has  followed this month. After a run of over 50 five star and a dozen four star reviews, I can only conclude that some readers do not value free books.


Maybe they just hate me.


Whatever. I’ve decided to end the free giveaways. Instead, I am pledging Five Pounds to the STROKE ASSOCIATION in the UK for every five star review on my bio-novel “never say I can’t”


Hopefully, this will encourage you to buy it, read it, enjoy it and review it.

Great news: I have recovered from my latest TIA -
