Biography

Hi, I am an Englishman imported in 1983, married with one son, a wonderful daughter in law and two amazing grandsons (aren't they all!!)I started writing when my wife's cousin came to America from Romania and needed help completing homework assignments.I found that I enjoyed writing so much that I continued to learn the craft and have written several short stories and a book entitled 'The Next Step'. I also enjoy watercolor painting, gardening, travel, golf, etc, etc.
I hope I never lose the desire to please people with any skill I am gifted with.
