I have a passion to write. I love to tell stories. I have a need to travel the world and writing about my journeys. It fascinates me to be able to put my words on paper, to find other people interested in my ideas and what I have to say. My ambition is to keep my memories alive, for my imagination to flow and for others to read and hear my words. When I write people respond well and are able to relate to my straightforward style. I write in plain English, partly because I am Dyslexic. Due to my impairment I wish to acknowledge the support I receive for the editing, proof reading, critiques and advice.
