Biography

I am inspired by all things creative; moreover literary, but above all historical, and more precisely the wisdom dug from the traditions of ancient Greece, Rome, and other remarkable civilisations which laid the foundations for our modern world. I graduated from Keele University with Classical Studies and History B.A.(hons.), in 2000. I am a strong believer in the Gaia Hypothesis of Professor James Lovelock. I have had many occupations, none of which I have truly loved.I shall release my second work: Fables of Freedom, in early 2014. This is a series of short stories to entertain and inform, they are the basis of my life’s philosophies and interests. They are personal accounts of the years I spent developing as a young man; after discovering to my dismay that my apprenticeship at 17 had me assist in manufacturing components for an unnecessary armament’ industry. I found this to be firmly against all I believed in. It has galvanised a life of political and social interaction, with the desire to learn and to pass on knowledge and wisdom, indeed, now-days, to a youth bedazzled by technology, mind controlling advertising, and undefined politics. Like any new generation you are struggling for acceptance and direction. After these works I shall, happily, concentrate on my life’s ambition of penning dramatic and historical novels.

‘Wise St. Rap Vs Gentle Rhyme’; (©2013); is an alliance of the authors poetical ideal and realism; this work is firmly based in modern urban culture.

These contrasting themes are inter-played throughout the book; a relationship between hope and frustration.
