This is me on the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge that spans the Cumberland River in Nashville, Tennessee. My umbrella is up, not because I was expecting rain, but because it was so hot. It was 95*F that day, but the river breezes made it feel a little cooler.

My writing career started after I retired, though I'd had the occasional article or letter published in various newsletters or magazines before then.

I entered my first poetry contest in December 2010, after seeing an article in my local paper. To date I've had seven poems published in various anthologies.

The first article for which I was paid was published in the Guardian weekend family supplement in December 2011. Since then I have had several further articles and letters published, both in the Guardian and in other publications.

In 2012 I wrote the biography of my friends, Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan, country music stars from Florida. My book, 'In Harmony', was published in November 2012 and is selling well. It is available in both paperback and e-book formats from Troubador Publishing http://www.troubador.co.uk/book_info.asp?bookid=2015 and from Amazon http://authl.it/6s

My creative writing course, which I've completed all but the last two assignments, is on hold for now, as I have too many other commitments at the moment.

In addition to writing, I am a lover of country music and I attend many festivals in my little red campervan, as well as going to country music gigs in clubs and pubs within easy travelling distance of my home. I also enjoy line dancing and short-mat bowling.

I love travelling, especially going to meet friends and family in the USA, as well as those in the UK. I have made many friends who share my passion; including listeners and musicians, singers and songwriters.
