New talent seeks willing critics to help launch writing career.

Background Information

 Born in Oxford, Uk, of Irish immigrant parents, one of eight children. An early love of childhood mystery and fantasy books somehow enabled me to overcome incompetence in all other areas and to go further in academia than even my most ardent supporters believed possible. My first and only publications to date were in my postgraduate time at Liverpool University and demonstrated the power of the published word. The Company that had refused to assist with my research asked me to name my price if i would suppress further publications. Foolishly, i refused.

After twenty years with a global professional services firm, working around the world and sometimes in the most fascinating of places, and with the last of three children soon to leave school, i now have the freedom to do something that i have always wanted to do, and write for pleasure.  Luckily, i also believe i have some stories in me that need telling, and which only i can tell.

Currently i am working on three projects. A novel (now in revision stage) where Gordon Gekko meets Irma la Douce, a non-fiction guide to selling into large corporations, and a comedy story set around the experiences of a work-shy labourer in the hey-day of post war irish immigration. 

The last twelve months immersion in writing has been sobering, and has taught me something of just how much craft i still need to learn. The other issue for new writers, perserverance against the odds, i find much less daunting.

Birth Place
Oxford,  United Kingdom

Range of Academic and professional qualifications and industry awards.

Additional Information

In common with Muhammad Ali, Madonna, Paul McCartney, i have somehow managed what most celebrities can only dream of: to be interviewed by Michael Parkinson on the Parkinson Show.
