Highs and lows:
High: summit of a sacred mountain in the Sierra Madre with a shaman.
Low: dealing in dodgy furniture in Brick lane Market London, next to the National Front hang out.
Recent employment - 'the Republican Guard' at Holyrood Palace, Edinburgh - a strange assignment for a writer. However, I completed Headfux in a cabin there... nice work if you can get it, Ma'am...
(if you want to know more, read my novels, they are all experienced based...)
