"To trust a towel salesman with a tottering economy is as bad as using a mouse to move an elephant up a high hill." I am a 45 year old married father and stepfather of four working towards a BA hons in English language and Lit. I am a fan of late 80's horror and 50's science fiction. But I am a wide reader; and have read Homer, Ray Bradbury Stephen king and the Journals and poetry of Sylvia Plath. I have interests in Political thinking, especially socialism , as I was brought up in a passionately socialist home. I also have interests in philosophy, behavioural science, technology, photography and poetry; and I have completed a small book of poetry with some prose, that I am trying to market. I have work on two sites ukauthors and abctales under the name I have for this site.
