The walker in the banner picture isn’t me, but it’s appropriate for me to use it, because I feel I’ve provided more than enough good intentions to have paved the long road he’s treading.
I first thought I could be a writer when I was ten years old and started to draft a spoof spy novel, which I read to my classmates in instalments. To my shame I put the manuscript to one side when I moved to another school, and forgot about writing fiction for more decades than I care to admit.
Once I’d retired I should have had no excuse not to write again, but I found it really hard to pin myself to a desk. Even so, in 2015 I managed to finish a novel, Pretty Little Thing, which is available as an e-book on Amazon. Please see my Writing page for more details.
After publishing the book, I became mildly hooked on writing flash fiction, as well as producing outlines for numerous short stories and at least three novels. Having finally settled on a novel that I planned to finish, I got bogged down in research. In January 2016 I decided to forget about writing for the time being and focus on more down-to-earth things that I might actually finish (with mostly positive results).
As of now, I’m planning to start writing again, but time will tell.
The walker in the photos is a good friend, so I suppose I owe it to him not to produce sufficient good intentions to take the road to its proverbial end.
Thank you for looking.
