‘Born to write’ – although he managed to serve on HMS Ark Royal, create a successful building company, become an hotelier and poultry farmer and excel as a property developer. All of this before he was ‘born to write’.

Past Captain and Honorary Member of Gourock Golf Club, raconteur and all round great guy.
