About Me

1 Well firstly I don’t think I’m that interesting so thinking of seven things may take it’s toll on my imagination.

2 I was a stay at home Dad to my two wonderful boys at a time when being a male home-maker was just starting to become acceptable.

3 I spent the majority of my working life in the dark…….working backstage in the theatre

4 I love cruising.

5 I hope to become an appreciated author some time before I leave this mortal existence.

6 I’m a big softy at heart and love a happy ending.

7 My first novel ‘The Other Side of Me’ has just been released (sorry but I just had to get that in somehow 🙂 )

Snippet from The Other Side of Me

cover draft6

 

The truth was this was a ‘want it all now’ generation and relationships were as disposable as the latest video game. As soon as something better and faster with more features became available the boys just had to have it, and once the quest for the hidden treasure was completed they usually lost interest.

 

Now available for Kindle from Amazon……..

The Other Side of Me

cover draft6

The Other Side of Me

Dreams hide in the shadows all unspoken through fear,
And I dare not to tell you just in case you don’t hear.
So afraid of rejection and the pain of before,
Here concealed in the darkness will love pass by my door?

And then you look at me
The darkness disappears, I long to be
That special someone you hope to see
And I pray that there’s another side……..
I know if you’ll be mine
Forever in my heart a light will shine
To show the way, tomorrow we’ll define
As you lead me to the other side…..of me.

But how do I tell her and just what should I say?
She may not feel the same as I do.
Then she’ll think that I’m foolish, it might push her away,
Then my pitiful life would be through

But then she smiles my way
With eyes so full of love that I must stay
To be with her for more than just this day,
There just has to be another side…..of me.

And when you look at me
I hope you’ll see the one you love, and we
Will always be together endlessly,
And there can be another side……
Please say you’ll be right here
To hold my hand and chase away this fear.
My every dream becoming crystal clear,
As you open up the other side….
I know that there’s another side….
Please God she sees the other side…..of me.

The Other Side of Me

She’s got me on supplements of iron, zinc, copper, chromium, selenium and magnesium. I’m not quite sure if we’re trying to make a baby or build a robot.
