I began to seriously write @two years ago, as a child I was informed by my teachers that I would never amount to anything in life.
For many years I didn’t put pen to paper, until I started to write my first book, “Never a Dull Moment”.
I have gone on to write 4 more books, I write for the love of it.
I am currently proof reading my latest Draft manuscript “The Journey”.
I may never write a bestseller, it is the love of starting on blank piece A4 paper and ending with 200 to 300 pages later and holding a new novel in my hands.
Gping back to my childhood at school I was taken out of class and stuck in a classroom on my own to read or write lines, what I would do was to stare out of the classroom window, watching people scurry from one classroom to another, I would make up stories.

The cold creeps up my body, like the tide lapping up onto a beach, the cold creeps up my toes and into my feet
At the tips of my body, my fingers are becoming colder and colder, my hands turning blue
My nose is becoming bluer and darker, it is excruciatingly painful the tips of my ears are in such pain
My body is starting to shut down. I can feel the energy ebbing from my lifeless body
Each movement is becoming slow and painful
Sleeping under the stars is so lonely and cold
Overnight my body shuts down for good
copyright Inspirations book of poetry 2016
*Please note the poem below is from my Book of Poetry “Inspirations”*
Humans are meant to be the most intelligent animal on the planet? The difference is we kill one another on such an industrial scale
We are destroying the planet that we share with other species
Whenever we meet other people from different parts of the world, we may not speak the same language, we seem to be able to communicate and understand one another
We laugh at similar things and enjoy similar things there is an unspoken bond
Life is not too dissimilar, as Nations we seem to want to destroy one another
The book can be found on Amazon Books and Kindle
I am currently finishing off proof reading my current novel “The Journey”.
The next book is “Broken Journey” It is a paranormal novel, without the ghosts etc it is very subtle.
It should be online @May 2017.
A book starts with a piece of paper
At the start writing a book seems such a daunting task, like thinking of climbing mount Everest.
I sit at my table with my laptop and a piece of paper, and think this piece of paper will be the starting point of my latest novel. Many weeks later 1 page has become 350 pages.
My advice is, everyone has a story so do something about it and start writing. I have had knockback after knockback from publishers, never give up on your dream.
Go out there and show the world you can write and have a story to tell.
I am currently proof reading the latest book manuscript.
Look out on Amazon Books and Kindle
