During my career in management development I was extensively and frequently published in a variety of management and academic journals. I also had a monograph on ‘Team Problem Analysis’ published. Additionally, as a compulsive writer, I produced many short stories, some of which have been, and are being, published in magazines in the UK. I presently have a collection of 40 short stories selling on Amazon under the title ‘The Human Circus’. That book was published by Lulu.
Since coming to live in France I have had some articles on French life published in magazines, and have done some journalism for French News, and English language monthly published in France for ex-pats.
I am a Mancunian in origin, who started his working life as a coalminer and a bus driver, before gaining a scholarship in my late twenties to read economics and politics for two years at Ruskin College, Oxford. Having gained my diploma I won a State Mature Scholarship, one of only two awarded that year, to read Economics at Hull University. I gained a B.Sc. Econ. Honours.
I have now retired to France with my wife, to live in Norman tranquillity, which is an ideal environment for writing.
I have written two novels, as yet unpublished, 'Who Killed Clarissa?' and 'The Great Collapse. I am presently working on a third novel.
