Jack Baines


It finally happened. On an international trip, he woke up in a hotel but just could not remember the name of the country. Or even the continent. It seemed that life had moved over from real to unreal. Having stepped on the road to personal fantasy, he decided to call time on the day job. So, he archived his life, quit the office before the last meeting proved one too many and made his escape into fiction where he was reborn as Jack Baines.
