I survived 40 stolen years that I should never have seen, to be rebirthed in a hospital of the heart, and unleashed upon an unsuspecting public thirsting for intelligent, dramatic fulfillment...
Despite the uniqueness of my medical condition - I only have half a heart - I'm really just an ordinary guy with a soaring personal passion for certain of the elements that make up the tapestry of life;
writing, music, working, writing, reading, cycling, football, writing.
I scrawl, doodle, scribe, sketch words into images, and write constantly.
I also have literary Tourette’s, which is fine until your audience changes. If you get that, you're already there. Oh, and I absolutely love spreadsheets - is that normal? And I love to write. Oh, how I love to write.
Outside of working like a madman, I take an active interest in the lives of our daughters and son, our 3 wonderful grandchildren, like to read extensively, and listen to music.
I particularly like embracing new ideas, experiences and challenges. So far I have written novels, a large body of poetry, short stories and have several scripts underway. I am also a lyricist, working with local musician Paul Grant.
I also pen an irregular blog... a less than serious look at popular culture and football that I hope will inspire.

I also write freelance as Gurnhill Publishing, my own writing, editing and creative company.
