pic of dogThroughout my early school years I was right at the bottom of the class when it came to my English studies. In fact without my mothers help, I might never have learned to read let alone write. My father then taught me the value of enjoying work.

I am retired following a varied working life. At retirement I managed to obtain a place on a degree course. I now have a BA in Combined Studies [Bradford University].

I am fortunate to have a supportive wife and two sons. I have three grandchildren plus a rather tolerant black and white collie. He is one in a long line of canine friends who I have had the pleasure of knowing.

At the present time, this site is rather neglected as I am writing a lot of flash fiction, which is available to view on my journal website. A link to that site is on the front page of this web site.
