Born in England in 1940 in the middle of the Battle of Britain.
He joined the Merchant Navy after an Engineering education, and spent seven-odd years living a footloose existence at sea, but met the light of his life, the girl who is now his wife of now forty-three years ago while in London.
Worked in Africa, and then in England in heavy Engineering, on water, sewage, power and electricity projects.
Loves his family, giving special attention to the two Grandsons who are both always smiling! Is very proud of his three adult kids,
Interests range from politics to blogging and writing, from classical music to photography.
He has had one book published in print, a novel about Right-wing politics, and has plans for maybe more.
Politically, he is inclined towards the Right, but is constantly depressed by what is on offer on that side of the political divide. Dislikes the very idea of the European Union, and is forlornly awaiting any Party to keep their promises regarding that bureaucracy-ridden place by the offer of a Referendum.

Miracles from Some Gentle Power
An ordinary man, an engineer, is given a gift. The gift is that he can heal people. These pages tell his story; of how he reacts to the strangest power ever given to a human being, of his journey to a realisation of how his gift might be shared by many, and of the people he meets whilst on his journey.
A journey which ends, tragically, at the command of a paranoid senior civil servant.
The Only Good Friend
A criminal lies injured, while his family lies in their graves, innocent victims of a politician's worried about an old lie, told in the time of Vietnam.
Once healed, Charlie Trench plans revenge upon the man who had his family murdered; and is not worried by the fact that his target is the President of the United States.
A major American auto manufacturer is under attack from two directions, both unobserved, both secret.
The father of an auto-executive is killed, seemingly by a hit-and-run. How is this coupled with the fiery death of a senior advertising exec a thousand miles away in New York; and is it also linked with the death of a junkie who wanted to steal a car?
Continental Attack will explain everything!
The Strings of Time
A violin maestro, an auctioneer specialist, a fifteen year-old girl and a youthful multi-millionaire. What can possibly bring these four disparate personalities together, and how do they relate to the death of a President, the discovery of unknown and miraculously perfect recordings of long-dead singers, two unique violins placed for auction, and a superb collection of unknown art by Renaissance.
The skies over France and Germany in 1943 were full of sounds. The drone from the massed American B-17s as they marshalled for a raid. The waspish retaliation from the engines of the Luftwaffe as they sped into attack against the machine guns of the bomber fleet. This is the story of the life of one bomber, in an English base of the American Air Force, in those dark days of War.
Single to Westminster, via Berlin
The voice of Adolf Hitler resides within the mind of Charlie Watson, a young street-brawler in London. The story tells how he reformed his own Party, fought an Election, gained nine seats at a General Election, and of his rise to be amongst the political elite of Britain. The novel encompasses a British 9/11 and the response to that attack, as well as Charlie's assaults on the IRA and Europe.
