Far too many to number here. I love Hesse, Borges but A.A. Milne and Rupert Bear played their part. I love Shakespeare, the theatre, art (Impressionists) and concerts. I have developed a love of history and archaeology and all things past that don't quite ring true.

   Oh my goodness.! Since I set up this site I've        written two novels, an account of

my long trek over land to Tibet in the'70s and NOW..another epic is unfolding. As if that wasn't strange enough? People are reading my work. Gulp!

              Thank you all for your support

COMING SOON_______________

There seems to be an infinite number of reasons, excuses and distractions to help me avoid creative writing or painting. Perhaps I come up with them so that  I reach the point where the well of creativity inside me just bursts. Then everything flows.

  I was raised in Southmead, Bristol,England. by an English mum and Irish dad. School began at age of 4 years and continued until I was 21 ! Hey ho! No wonder I put a bag on my back and took off as soon as I could .......


My roots

I live in rural tranquility in the Republic of Ireland. The nearby town of Granard is tiny, We still burn turf on the fire and for cooking. There is no light pollution but a huge canopy of stars  outside the cottage door.​
