About Me

Tollesbury, Essex, United Kingdom
I was born in the Summer of 1969 in Dagenham, just on the border of East London. School was largely unproductive but enjoyable, setting me up for something of a wayward but interesting life! On leaving school I had various jobs including putting up stalls at Romford Market, working in a record shop, putting up ceilings, gardening and road sweeping. After resigning from an insurance company to play in a band, I found myself unemployed for two years. Then finally I got back on my feet and I've been a psychiatric nurse since 1997. I wrote A Cleansing of Souls when I was 22 years old and followed it up with Tollesbury Time Forever almost twenty years later. I started writing The Bird That Nobody Sees in September 2011 and it was released in July 2012. In terms of writing, my heroes are Jack Kerouac and John Steinbeck. I would also include Kris Kristofferson, Bob Dylan and Tom Waits as literary influences. So that's me I guess - scruffy, happy and in love with literary fiction, music and life...

Congrats. If you really want to get it out there, maybe put out a smashwords edition as well. It will get it to B&N, Apple, Sony, Kobo, and others. Just a thought.

Cheers Sean! That's my next move. Going to put some posters up around the village. Have already spoken to the head of the parish council and the leader of the Tollesbury Amateur Dramatics group - now that's networking!! ; )

Well done Stu! I'll be treating my new Kindle to it, pending the arrival of wages! Sounds like you're working that local angle to the hilt. All power to your elbow!
