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.

Studying Saturday

Today I've done quite a few different things:

  • Sent reminders to the people I'd sent 'Does your dog make you happy?' questions to - and added a couple more to the list.
  • Searched for academic papers on 'dogs/pets and happiness'. There were quite a few.
  • Sent emails to some dog food suppliers and dog-related organisations asking them for any relevant press releases. I also asked to go on their mailing lists.

I'm now going to skim-read a couple of the documents that I've downloaded and retire at 17:30.
