Not your usual published author or poet

Former alien

Infancy spent in Liverpool Blitz

Wasted four years in American High School

With the exception of meeting my wife

US Navy vet (no ships just planes)

Mason, Boat designer. Lic. Contractor & Builder

Mailman, Mold builder, Artist, Sculptor (whittler)

Secret novelist (third rewrite 20 years old)

Living in a piece of heaven in Plymouth county

Nine holes in the back (and front) yard

five greens are solid moss

Regrets? No time for them


Plans?  Dreams nearing development

Hopes? always

Finally published a poetry book
