I am a father of two great kids, Tammy (my daughter and youngest) and Calum (my son). They often drive me up the wall but I could never wish for better children.
I was born and bred in Scotland, I was raise by my aunt who sadly has now passed away. My childhood was in the most part a learning experience in school and out.
My adult life has seen great periods of unemployment interspersed with soul destroying jobs working in factories. The one job I enjoyed was working at a local theme park.
I am married, as mention above, with two kids Calum and Tammy. My son sadly takes his imagination from me. His sister though is more like her mother both in looks and temperament, so don’t get in her bad books.
I have always enjoyed writing but have other hobbies such as jewellery making, DIY, playing computer games (who doesn’t these days), of course reading. Unfortunately money is often in short supply, as it is with most of us these days, so I have little in the way to spend on them but at least with the DIY I can save some until the kids spend it for me which never takes long does it.

- A Sprinkling of Thought Dust
on June 18, 2011
I have thought about how I could do this book justice in a review but I’m not sure that I could though I shall try. First of all this is a fantasy tale that should appeal to all ages yet to me it is more the sort of tale parent would great joy from reading to their children. In it we follow Electrum as he travels from his sprite world of silver to the gold realm via the tween world (our world) as he tries to help his charge, the prince of the silver realm. The prince has fallen in love but this is not a love tale but more of an adventure, especially for Trevor who is unfortunately caught in the middle when he is enchanted by accident. The enchantment takes the form of Trevor shrinking each twilight to the size of a sprite. There is much more to this than I could possibly say without giving too much away so I will say no more about the actual story other than it is a must for all fantasy lovers.
