If political incorrectness is a sin, I'm the world's biggest sinner.


Background Information

 

Brought up in Hulme, Manchester, in the fifties, I'm still a Teddy boy at heart. Major inluences are John Steinbeck - all his books are good, but Grapes of Wrath is my favourite; Thorne Smith - for his sense of the absurd. (probably forgotten now) He wrote some amazing stuff without ever swearing. Henry Miller who swore as if it were going out of fashion. George MacDonald Fraser, for his Flashman series. Spike Milliigan and the other Goons, for proving that I'm not mad. A lad in our class at St Margaret's Central school in Manchester, called Jim Smith, who, with me, invented the most amazing cartoon characters. (I'm working on bringing them back life)

Being a semi-retired Chartered Architectural Technologist, I have plenty of time to write, but I don't always feel like it. I'm very lazy.

Birth Place
Kendal,  England
Additional Information

Latest works: Memoirs of a Serial Hiller. 2nd. edition out soon. (Funny I hope) tales of my hiking with some crazy people, over 4 decades; The Suit - a novel about Hulme, Manchester during 1959. Mooplums - a children's book of cartoon characters, began in my head 54 years ago. Now, because this book seems to be getting more sales than all my others, I'm concentrating on Mooplums 2.
