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.

Sunday Summary

Haven't really done very much so far today. I'm still not feeling that great. Lottie's barking her head off - telling the fireworks off. I think it's Diwali tonight, so am expecting more later.

I've been posting the following message on social media: "Hi. I may have posted this before, but here goes! I'm writing a feature 'Does owning a dog make you happy?' for 'Dogs Today Magazine'. Do you own a dog that makes you smile, laugh, or just plain happy? If so, I'd love to hear from you. Tell me where in the UK you live, and the breed, gender, and age of your dog. What does he/she do that gives you that warm feeling inside? Have you got a high-resolution photograph of your happy dog? Please get in touch by messaging me here or sending me an email at sloughwriter@gmail.com" I've added this image of a happy dog at Christmas!

I've also looked-up and copied the entry in the 2024 edition of 'Writers & Artists Yearbook' for Nazalee who wants to submit an article on Caroline Hershel to 'History Today Magazine'.
