I've spent much of my career in the Mid-East, where I worked as an HR consultant and successfully self-published and marketed business software. These days, back in the UK, I'm interested in battling unemployment, and I set up small businesses to show others how they can do the same.
Smashwords is an important publishing platform for my creative writing - because it allows me to retain total control over what I publish and what I charge for my work. I'm not planning to release print versions of the work published here.
My latest commercial venture combines my business and creative interests. I'm publishing other people's poetry - specifically 'words of inspiration' - as wall-art. Find out more at http://ww ... read more

Phil, was born in a church Hostel in isolated Central Australia - no doctor there. He grew up on a Lutheran Mission in desert isolation with Aboriginal friends and ate snakes, lizards, grubs & ants. He survived penny-less Church boarding school life after a 3 day, 1000 mile steam train trip. Then various different apprenticeships, underground mining, a broken heart and love affairs. Persistence saw him morph into a world-wide chopper mechanic/pilot/manager. The media declared him dead at various times but his `angel' saw him through.
Religious problems and skiing in Europe were followed by a society wedding in England, living/working in countries from Fiji to UK, before divorce occured. Phil was involved with ... read more
