I have been a musician, writing songs and playing in bands, for most of my adult life. For some years I have been a film actor, and have also played fringe theatre.
However, a few years ago I started writing my memoirs. I found I enjoyed it so much that I tried other genres; first a screen play and then some stories. I realized, to my delight, I had discovered a new-found skill, and a hitherto unknown passion – writing! Or to be more precise, storytelling.
I recently made my publishing debut on Kindle, and now on Smashwords, where, so far, I have two books published: 'Mistress for Masters', a romantic drama, and 'Some Untall Stories' a compilation of shorts.
I very much enjoy the writing of short stories; meeting the challenge of presenting a well-rounded tale with an unexpected twist or two, within 3000 to 12000 words, I find tremendously satisfying.
It is my intention to increase my collection, and my fervent wish that readers will continue to enjoy my books.
