I quit my job in the U.K., where I designed global computer networks for a living, in October, 2001, spent several years in the U.S. studying screenwriting at UCLA and then running my own wireless communications company outside Flagstaff, Arizona. I left the U.S. in March, 2007, and now live in Belize, Central America, sharing my home with a mixed-breed puppy (a ‘pot-licker’ in local parlance) called ‘Layla’, and two occasional house guests (iguanas, actually), christened ‘Max’ and ‘Matilda’. I’m pretty much a full time writer, these days, though I’m also working on my photographic skills. I provide author related services at a reasonable fee, including: web site design and optimization, story and movie script development and/or editing. I’m also available for certain collaborative projects. My interests are: ancient religions, astronomy, geology, photography, paleontology and the Victorian Era.
