At the age 14 with my passport and an almost empty rucksack I headed for the south of France. Here, I had a fabulous time working as a deckhand on luxury yachts.
On my return to the UK, I joined the Royal Navy and remained for 35 years. For many years after joining, I enjoyed sailing for the Royal Navy.
I served as a marine engineer, trained as an engineering diver, a parachutist and worked with Air Sea Rescue. I eventually became a fully qualified Engineer Officer and further certified as a Deck officer. My eventual command of a patrol boat was my highest achievement.
- : I enjoy writing.
- : Yes it was a ghost story. Pretty rubbish but I was only seven.
- : I read an article in a daily paper on Pirates being defeated by the worlds navies. After a bit of research I discovered they had simply moved their location. From that my book Black Gold evolved.
- : I've alway written short stories, some were even published. I began writing seriously many years ago. Someone said if you can't find a book you want to read - write it, so I did.
- : I grew up in the Royal navy. I've seen much which is good in the world and plenty of bad. When you enter a harbour you enter the back door of the city. I learnt the world can be a dangerous place with touches of love all around. You only have to look to find it.
- : Every afternoon except Sunday.
- : A rewrite of an old novel.
- : Sailing and helping my wife.
- : Get an idea and run with it. Most of the time it fades after a few thousand words but when it doesn't, I have a new book.
- : Good action and adventure. They enable me to escape into another writers world.
- : Marine engineer, retired.
- : None
- : I have a good friend Berni Stevens who is a professional in designing covers. It works for me
- : Let it flow.
- : When I reach the end of another book.
- : Amazon Books.
- : Thank you for buying and reading my work. I hope you enjoyed reading them as much as I did writing them.
