My stories have won superb reviews and many have won the much coveted ‘Cherry Award’ on the highly respected literary website ABC Tales. I am also a songwriter, once signed to Warner Chappell, and currently share credits with Paul McCartney on an album released in the USA by a British Chart group. Also a member of the RBSA. (Royal Birmingham Society Of Artists.) where my work has been exhibited. In previous incarnations I have worked as a photographer, decorator, carpenter and a Theatre Stage Manager. (Where I was taught to play the piano by Victor Borge, anongst others.) I have climbed mountains for Alzheimers Research and part of the profits from my writing are donated too.
