About me

I am came into this wonderful literary portal courtesy of a couple of life changing Dark Angels writing courses in Aracena and Oxford. Surrounded by some of the smartest writers I have ever met, I embraced the environment and eventually after much flapping of wings and a few bottles of Rioja I was told that I had found my voice.

I am also delighted to be part of the Dark Angels group whose elegant prose surroundsa new building development inLondon all this year. I think I am October.

So that’s my back story. A seasoned, battle hardened Marketer, Brander, Saleser and er..anything else that creates a buck for a company. I have been doing it for a while for companies large and small, and for themost part it has been a most rewarding experience personally and professionally.

I love writing and writers. Strangely enough so do most business people these days. Except that they call their words “SEO”and their beautiful stories “content”. Whatever it takes to make people fall in love again with the art of reading, conversation and the insatiable desire to discover something special.

I write with humor and I write with passion – never together – and I write on the Blackburn Rovers Forum whenever I feel compelled. That would be most weekends.

I live and work in Pennsylvania and I visit London- my second home-often. They are both magical places that evoke wonderful memories, and the promise of more as time marches on.

My favorite movie is Animal House, my favorite actor is Arjen Robben and If I should win, I would like to travel the World and learn a new language.
