I was born in East London during the V1's and landmine attacks. I nearly died 3 time from Pneumonia whilst a baby. I survived, served 9 years in the Royal Air Force.
During this time I met my wife of 46 years. I sailed for 20 years mainly on the south coast of England, took my exams, I am a yacht/ocean master. We have two grown up children.
When I retired we bought a small olive farm in Spain in the middle of a forest halfway up a mountain. This is where I began my writing and where I still get a lot of inspiration for my short stories of the birds and animals that we share our home with. I never thought I would say this but I am becoming something of a conservationist.
