About me

Welcome to my blogsite.   I’m a writer of plays, fiction and travel. I’m a great observer of my surroundings and have  a wide range of interests and experiences to blog about. You are likely to come across: swimming, gardening, travel, cycling, arts and culture, gay issues and writing.  You are unlikely to find out what I had for breakfast or which cafes I frequent.

I’m currently living on Waiheke Island, New Zealand having lived in East London for over 30 years.

Did Biology and Ecology at  Uni.

After a brief stint as a teacher, I ran away to join a theatre company in Auckland

Came to London  to study drama, and stayed, working as an actor, director, producer, dramaturg and playwright.

My first play The Davids was produced in 1999 by the London New Play Festival.

Ran a new writing theatre company, Maya Productions, for eighteen years developing writers and teaching playwriting.

Decided to try writing a novel and  Twenty-Two Eighty-Four is my first one and I’m currently working on Gay Dads due for publication in 2015.

You can read my account of my round the world journey  with my late partner Phillip on  travelpod.
