I am a painter in oils and the author of a novel entitled Back Dated. This Blog is a thinly disguised attempt to market both my paintings and the book.
Having got that confession out of the way, I hope that despite this inept attempt at deception, you will find my blog worth the time you take to read it. Like my novel (sorry, to mention it again) it’s not intended to be literary or pretentious, merely entertaining.
I won’t bore you with too many biographical details, suffice it to say I was born in London but have spent more than half my life in the Midlands. For the last twelve of those years, I have lived in Church Stretton, Shropshire and have a great view of the Long Mynd from my lounge window.
