The written word and me...
Robert Rankin is the
quintessential English eccentric writer of far fetched
fiction. He populates his books with characters who you'd meet down
the pub, but who invariably get into all manner of weird and
I do not sit down purposely
to write, I wait until something either inspires, outrages or takes
my interest before I decide to try and write.
Another outlet for my writing has been diarys and journals which I have kept in some form or other off and on throughout the last 23 years. My latest online journal / blog is now located at blogspot.
A selection of my written works can be found by selecting a
sub-category below. These will be constantly updated so please check
back regularly for new pieces.
News of new pieces of writing will appear here when necessary.
A selection of my autobiographically inspired writing can be found here along with Poetry, Lyrics and other prose
Literary Pals. Below, information on friends who I've met through writing.
Andrew Newsham and I met at a local community radio station in the late nineties and found a common humour and appreciation for music and writing. Andy is a published author of several short stories, he also writes comedy and poetry. He currently resides in Chicago with his wife. Sample his works here.
Brendan Higgins is a Birmingham based poet who I also met at songwriters cafe. His work is funny and sharply observed.
