About the Author:

Though for more than twenty years the resident of a small and very rural North Yorkshire village I was born and had all my education in the greater city of the West Riding. A product of my time I can look back on many eventful years as both observer and participant in the social and political activities of both these counties. The second son of a seagoing engineering officer and a minor union official I was raised in an Anglo / Italian household dominated by a powerful mother and my resourceful but remarkably volatile grandmother. During a varied adult life I have felt the strictures of uniformed service sold my soul to the marketeers in the pursuit of money and was employed for a period by the UK's most famous private psychiatric hospital. Having concluded that it is never enough to be satisfied by the mundane or the obvious curiosity has filled my life and though variously this has brought me to adventure and discomfort it has remarkably never come near to killing this peculiar cat. Fortunate but never lucky I have known the love or at least the loving of many women but as often as I fell into that rapture I found myself in stormy seas. Though somewhat unconventional my second marriage has brought me to a safe haven and being at last chaste and chastened my anchorage is now in calm and sheltered waters.A creature of spirit my internal argument has always been between the inner dogmatist and the incorrigible romantic who surfaces when the toil of day is done.I cannot and do not try to offer solutions; my verse is simply a comment on my experience; if I offend I do not regret it and if I provoke then so much to the good.
