I am currently living in Lancaster with my wife and our cat Rosie. I have just published a book about some of the rock concerts I went to between 1981 and 1999 in the UK.
Up until March this year I was a volunteer presenter on Diversity 103.5FM but sadly the station was shut down. So now I am broadcasting on the internet station Acoustic Spectrum and I upload the shows to Mixcloud - see the links on my web site.
I'm also a musician and have got some songs on Soundcloud. They're mainly covers but there are a few original compositions too.

I'm just an old surfer, ex banker and former coach, with a public school education, whom (that's right I said whom) grew up in Kailua Town, Hawaii, seeing life as subject matters and story lines, in exploring my ability to tell stories in complete sentences and hope to perhaps sneak in a few lessons and social issues, along the way for the littlest of youngsters, looking to grow in body, mind and spirit. Yet ambitious enough to attempt to tell a compelling story, hopefully making adults want to turn the page... and that is a work in progress.
Call me creative, or maybe I'm the guy that awaits your kind response (hopefully), but if you do feel that it might be a work of crap, please be so kind as to tell me not ... read more

The fact that you are reading this means I have a chance of getting noticed among the hundreds of thousands of writers on the book market. I don't know what I love more between football and writing. I guess I have to like writing more because there is no chance for me to earn money in football. I don't restrict myself to one genre. If I have a good idea for a book, I will go for it, whatever the genre.

Robert S. Coleman had ambitions early in life to work in law enforcement because it was his goal to work in a career that would afford him the opportunity to protect the safety of public citizens. It is interesting how life turns you in directions you sometimes never imagine it will, however, and it took a literal state kidnapping of his children for Robert to wind up in the career he is pursuing today. After having worked in security jobs and as a park ranger for a number of years, Robert decided to go into business for himself, and for almost ten years at the turn of the century, he operated Coleman Estates Rental Properties in Ironwood, Michigan. But in 2008, a vindictive couple who rented an apartment f ... read more

My life used to be quite ordinary - and predictable. Well, not any more. When my husband told me that he likes to dress in women's clothing, my life took a different direction and followed a path that I would never have ever foreseen. My book, Something to Confess, is a true account of how I dealt with hearing my husband's revelation and how the world of transvestism affected my day to day life.

I started writing at a very young age but soon was more consumed with women, drinking and smoking. It was only when I realized that vice doesn't lead to virtue that I left childish things behind me and found myself back into the realm of writing, work, and love. It was in that aspect that the words started to flow. It may seem that I am not above putting lots of work on to the internet, but that doesn't mean I'm not focusing thoughts into words. I currently work for a Jet Fuel company that has ties to forestry and so in the summer months I fill planes and helicopters to fight forest fires in situations that are close to war zones - especially when towns are at risk.

Elle J Rossi grew up in rural Indiana surrounded by great people, a huge family and more animals than she could count. But the sites and sounds of the world beckoned, so she left her small town to escape into a creative world full of music. As a full time singer she was able to lose herself in a thousand different songs in a hundred different places.
After meeting the love of her life and settling down, she yearned to find a new and fulfilling creative outlet. Overly fond of the happily ever after, she wondered what it would be like to have her own characters lead her down dark and twisted paths. The very first word on the very first page sealed her fate.
