Scenic route in writing...
Born Sheffield. A childhood affinity for ideas, art, writing
yet a totally different career intervened.
Newly married to Vanessa, we took off for art colony Laguna
Beach, California, making
it our home, raising 2 sons. Travelling as a US executive, I also
led seminars & wrote
business textbooks (credits),
with novels as relaxation

(advance-level) plus a novel. I find the lean form of
writing, with subtext, appealing.
