Born in the North East of England. In my teens heard Eric Burdon singing "We've got to get out of this place" and left on hitch hiking tour of Europe to look at buildings. Went to Manchester. Was in the university until the revolution of 1968. It was a gas! Thrown out and went to the great Architectural Association - now there's a school - in London. Couldn't make money in, nor did I fit in, architects' offices so tried other avenues. Have been an underground pipe designer, a property manager, and latterly an expert witness in delay mitigation on large structures. Had one job where my budget was a million dollars a day. Have lived in 29 houses in 6 countries in 37 years of marriage. My wife tells my son, "Don't worry - your dad doesn't know what he wants to be yet".
I want to be a writer.
