I’m on a journey

Quite a long one, as it turns out. It’s not easy to write a book and get it published, but I’m trying. I set up this website to document my journey. But I’m not the only one on a journey to pursue the things I love to make a living. I might be a long way off that dream at this point, but I have some friends who are already doing what they love. 

Friends who have been supportive of me in the past. Now it’s time to return the favour. Time for me to shine my tiny spotlight onto some of those people. (Especially at this current time with this Covid19 lockdown crisis!)

If you’ve come to this page, please take a look at the links below and click on through. It’s a pretty diverse range of people, products and services, but they all deserve your attention.

She’s super friendly, witty, swears like a sailor and is guaranteed to make you laugh. Super helpful and chatty. She’s been a huge help for me with the ‘Songbird‘ books.
She has a romance/erotica book (Acts of Closure) coming out next spring, I think – I’m sure she’ll keep us posted! – so give her a follow on Twitter, and buy her book when it’s out!!

Brian is an old friend – way back in 2005 we used to shoot hoops together. He always showed a keen interest in photography and now does it for a career. And he’s VERY good at it. So good that when wifey and I got married he was our official photographer and we couldn’t be happier with his work.

BGO is ‘Burgundy and Gold Obsession‘ and it’s something I’ve suffered (I mean truly suffered!) from for almost 40 years.
It’s a forum for ardent supporters of the Washinton Football Team.
The folks there are passionate and knowledgeable and welcoming.
I LOVE this place.
