WHERE I'VE  BEEN  - HOW  I  GOT  THERE  -  WHERE  I'M  GOING

The writer grew up in the Mississippi Delta down Highway 61 to become a rolling stone and a journalist. The profession allowed him the opportunity to travel a considerable amount of the planet and live in such diverse places as Miami, Guam, London, New York and Tokyo. He made the pilgrimage to Graceland, toured Imelda Marcos' closet and Lenin's tomb, and drank rum with the deceased Hemingway while watching the sunrise over the writer's grave in Idaho. He reacted to his mid-life crisis by dropping out and buying a historic and dilapidated old hotel on a remote Florida barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico. The experience provided him with plenty of colourful characters and background for his writing endeavours. He lives now in Lancing on the South coast of England where he is houseboy for his Yorkshire wife when he is not hanging out with his friend The Real Kramer in Manhattan. He wishes he could live underwater. He spends his days with his faithful basset hound Barnaby, seeking inspiration, and trying to write something worthwhile before he gets sucked into the cosmic hereafter.
