With a career in journalism behind me, I'm now doing what I always wanted to do – writing about subjects that interest me rather than subjects that interest editors. These include religion, philosophy, feminism, language and history. I'm married to Erica and we have two grown-up daughters. We live in the town of Shrewsbury, in the beautiful English county of Shropshire.
I rebelled against mainstream Christianity years ago and have since studied alternative understandings of Christianity and the relation between it and other world faiths. As part of this I'm studying for a degree with Oxford Brookes University, majoring in religion and philosophy. I start work soon on my dissertation, which will explore the relationship between God and the Self, specifically the way we have moved over recent centuries from belief in a God ‘out there somewhere’ to an inner, existential understanding of deity. Future ebooks will pick up on some of the themes to be developed, including the question of whether we have become so self-referential in spiritual matters that we have discarded God. Other areas I hope to write about include the role of women in shaping postmodern society’s understanding of itself.
