About Me

My photo
I'm a 68-year-old disabled amateur writer living and working in Slough in Berkshire in the UK. I began writing in 1996 after having to retire from my career in the National Health Service due to heart disease. I've had a series of heart attacks and two heart bypass operations. Between 1996 and 2010, I contributed regularly to several UK leisure and lifestyle magazines. Many of these articles can be downloaded from the 'ARCHIVE' section of my website. I've also contributed to some television programmes. I'm a member of the 'Slough Writers Group' which is both interesting and informative. At the moment I'm preparing to start writing factual features for magazines. You can see the articles that have been published in the 'LATEST WORK' section of my website.

Funny Friday

It's been a bit of a funny day today. A couple of books that I'd ordered from Amazon arrived today. But I'd never have known that they'd arrived until I got an email from Amazon telling me that they'd been delivered. The courier had left them on the floor outside our flat door. 

I may have already mentioned it but I've graduated to being able to take a few slow short steps without the aid of a walking stick. I'm getting there! I'm just hoping that I won't be left with a limp.
Another thing I think that I haven't already mentioned is that on Monday I finally got to go back to attending the evening at my writing group, Slough Writers. It's the first time that I've been able to attend since early July. I really enjoyed it and it was great to be back amongst other writers. I'm indebted to Mark who kindly gave me a lift as I'm not allowed to drive for the time being.

So far today, I've been reviewing my notes for my article 'Does owning a dog make you happy?'. I've also been leafing through a couple of books about writing articles for magazines.

That's all for now. Watch this space!
