About

I’m not much of a risk-taker in the conventional sense; I have no need for jumping out of planes, or skiing down mountains, or gambling on horses.  But I’ve taken some scary routes through life and circumstances have led me to the edge of safety a fair few times. I’ve escaped, sometimes by the skin of my teeth.

What do you do ?  Don’t you just hate that question!

Everything I write here is me thinking aloud.  I’m not expecting to change the world.  If you enjoy it, that makes me happy.  I also write for other people, where the opinions are not necessarily my own, but where there’s often a happy convergence – it’s interesting work.

A voracious reader at 10 years old, I decided I wanted to be a writer.  All through my varied career, it’s been there, the desire to write.  It’s happened in a patchy way, here and there, co-authoring various books about development and global issues, a book of lousy poems hidden under the bed, a diary (don’t go looking for it, I shredded and composted it years ago) some stuff for other people and organisations for which I am not credited (it’s OK, I have no beef, I was paid), and now as a blogger.

I am from and still live in Yorkshire, UK, with my teenage son and a house full of music and guitars, and a garden that doesn’t get as much of my attention as I’d like but is still perhaps my first love.  After my son.  And my guitars.  And my friends and lover, and family, and my city of Leeds, and home made curries made from scratch …. well, I love it anyway.
