Always been a writer but ambition was thwarted by laziness and an unhealthy interest in politics, hence political ramblings at http://abriefencounter.blogspot.com/ . Other published writing has been of a political nature but that must change.
Now desperately trying to write for radio and screen, but workng towards a novel of gritty northern realism, dripping in irony and tragedy. Or maybe just having a midlife crisis.
However, photo is of me in my earlylife crisis, rather than midlife crisis!
