I have written for newspapers, radio and magazines and Internet and have had my own 400 page Self-Esteem Web-site. I have published poems, short stories, 2 books, several papers and a dissertation. I have won prizes and been short-listed for literary awards, have many qualifications in horticulture,, (UEI, CDH, NHS ) management, (MBIM) BA (Hons) in Psychology and MSc, in Social Science Research with particular reference to Alternative Sexuality. I love life, the natural world and learning and am fascinated by people. What I have to offer are the skills of a researcher and a word-smith and a thorough understanding of the structure of language, with a disarming and forthright personal honesty.
