I'm a writer, you're a reader. That's a good start!

  • Conventional wisdom tells me that there should be a picture of the author on the landing page. I'm not certain how valid it is to know what a writer looks like; after all, it's the imagination we're after, right?

    On the other hand, most of us do judge the book by its cover - either literally or figuratively - and in many cases that could indeed be valid.

    At the end of each sample on the "BOOKSHELF" is a link to the various selling outlets, plus a PayPal link where you can buy direct from myself. The latter is the cheapest for all of us.
    May I ask?

    An on-going problem for web designers is that the world can now get online using just about anything that has a battery.

    So, if you are viewing this site on...(I don't know; a Mongolian egg-timer, maybe, or something equally as unlikely)...and it doesn't look quite right, perhaps you would let me know about it?

    Thought...
    The book world is currently experiencing what could be a transition period - from hands-on, hard-copy to electronic. What this might mean to the price of kippers on a cold Sunday morning is beyond me. Also beyond me is how much of a transition there is likely to be. But I think we all - readers, publishers and writers - have to embrace the possibilities of the change, or go under. Only time will tell, of course. This site is my own contribution to the situation.

      Most of my books can be downloaded for a Kindle viewer.

      Some people don't like to read books that way.

      Up front, I didn't either. But I do now. Like many other things in life; you have to give it a chance to grow on you.

      They're also available as actual books : hard- or soft-cover.
