Leaving school early to work in a factory to buy an electric piano, I joined a band and that paid off as today I still enjoy playing the Blues. I continued to get pleasure from writing as it initially grew from writing songs, poetry, then plays. Later on teacher training opened up the world of literature. I won the Sussex Playwriting competition and the Richard Burton Poetry competition. An MA in Creative Writing followed and as a published poet I perform regularly. Pristine In Blue was professionally staged as part of the Milton Keynes Fringe and received critical acclaim. My dearest friend and wife Ashra gives me much support, inspiration and laughter. She has opened up the doors to India, her country of birth, which continues to intrigue, fascinate and mesmerise me. Lemon Seas is the result. I am fortunate still to share my work, and facilitate writing workshops. Book reviews online: PublishedBestsellers website.
