About Me
I am a late comer to the world of expression that is writing, but keen to have a go. By day I am a Gardener, working for myself, maintaining and developing clients gardens and grounds. I have always worked on the land as a Farmer, Gamekeeper or Forester. Rugby and Judo are my sports (Soccer is for wimps and prima donnas.) My daughter, Rhiannon has bullied me into writing, so blame her for what you read from my pen.
Type of Writer
Historical Mythology, folklore and Fantasy/Scifi with a bit of magic thrown in. Dark poetry, which surprises me.
Writing Style
Have not yet found one,
