I am a middle aged bloke, a father, a Trombonist and have just discovered the joy of writing. I've read hardly any books in my life as I've been mostly engrosed in music and my children so I doubt if I have any 'writer' influences. I do like reading articles on physics and other sciences and have done quite a bit of that. My ideas have mostly come from bed time stories I made up for the kids when they were growing, but I've put more of a serious slant in them and researched much subject matter to make sure I get the facty bits as right as I can. I would love to recieve comments/criticism/reviews etc so feel free to tell me . . . Rule of Nine (the Dance) is on the way.
