Having been a writer now for over twenty years, I thought it was high time to bring all of my various strings into one bow. In 2016 I published my first novel, Rules for a Born Again bachelor, which is available on Amazon as hardback, softback and Kindle versions. I have since completed two more novels and am writing a fourth. The second novel, The Perry Gene, has just been released (Jan 2020) on Kindle and Paperback. The earliest serious writing I undertook was poetry and in total now I have over 3000 poems stored and ready to deploy on top of a passionate love of Japanese short forms such as Haiku, Tanka, Senryu and Sedoka. Along the way, there have been short stories and forays into Non-fiction through the Analogies project which is an organisation trying to improve compliance to policy through the use of story telling. Also, the other non-fiction writing comes under the guise of 'Hoofing It' which is my blog site on horse racing. There is a plan to produce a biography of Admiral Henry John Rous, the father of the modern handicapping system in horse racing.
