Biography

Hello,
My first book for youngsters, “A Frogs' Tale”, was done as a surprise for my Granddaughter Alicia, she and her Mum loved Frogs. She liked it, and so the first book expanded to two books, and now there are five. I called the series “Tales from Wingy Woods”.

Prior to the children’s books, I wrote a book to help interested people, to achieve their goal of obtaining a "Retirement Visa". To Thailand, Oddly enough – I called it -- “How to Retire to Thailand”
As a Part time resident in Thailand; I came across many people wanting to -- or dreaming of -- retiring there. They all faced many problems. Up-to-date and clear answers were difficult to find, and there were and still are, are plenty of 'rip-off' ‘Visa Companies’ in existence.
The charges that the Thai Immigration department makes for a visa are the same for everyone. I contend that no one needs to pay more than those charges. This book shows the way.

I started my working life as an engineering apprentice, and in my time worked on all kinds of Fabrications from Conveyor Systems to Bridges. I progressed into a company that fabricated whole Sugar Factories, and from that company I started out on a 20 year period when I worked overseas in many countries, firstly building Sugar Factories and then Petro-Chemical plants.

Other works that I have written include television scripts, poetry, and lots of songs, none of which have made me rich enough to stop writing.
