Welcome to my website, which now includes my pages from my blog site, View to a Quill, which has now closed down, but remains active as part of this site, which is now under a new system and a new server.

I have kickstarted 2021 with the release of my  third instalment of my Butlins Trilogy, "How do you get the Donkeys up the Stairs?"  more details to follow.  It has been a long journey in the production of this series and I want to thank all of the people that have supported me during this time.   Without them, these books would have not been possible.

Along with promotion of this latest release, I continue to be very active on the airwaves, producing and presenting for Radio Stations in Scotland and in Spain.   More broadcasting, writing an online projects are planned during the coming months.   Watch this space!

This year is certain to be my busiest yet.  It starts with the redevelopment of this new website.  So please keep coming back for the latest stories, announcements regarding my writing, broadcasting, special offers, or whatever else is on my mind.

Thanks for visiting.
