I was born and raised in Surrey, England, where I also married and settled after meeting my wife at Uni in Manchester. I love wild animals and wild places; and one of my greatest delights was to spend 9 years living in the Shetland Isles before we came back south to the Yorkshire Dales.
I am a scientist by training and was a computer programmer and technical author by trade. But since my first encounter, at the age of 14, Jesus has been the greatest love of my life. (And I know my wife won't mind me saying so, because He is hers too!)
I have now been a church leader and Bible teacher for about 50 years and a frequent visitor to churches and Bible schools in various parts of the world. Following my second most life-changing encounter with God, back in 2003, I began studying - and later teaching on - the Song of Solomon, which quickly became my most-requested subject. The first draft of 'Transformed by Love' was completed in 2004 and has undergone various minor revisions since: but it was not until 2012 that I finally took the decision to publish in paperback and on-line format. My desire in doing so is to make the message of this book available as freely as possible to those who may need it.
Over the years I have been an avid reader; so much so that my son once joked, 'What do you call Daddy when he's reading a book? ... Anything you like: he can't hear you!' Next to spiritual themes, science fiction and fantasy, adventure and extreme survival have been my favourite genres.
Will there be more books? Yes, probably. But I do not want to write for the sake of writing, or to see my name in print: rather, when I sense that God is giving me something He wants me write about. I am working on another project which could lead to one or more books in due course. I also have another, much bigger, subject in mind: but I am still in 'learn' mode on that one. I believe that, in spiritual matters, a message must become part of you before you can truly share it.
In the meantime, please keep in touch by following my blog, where I am posting occasional articles and news updates.
