I have been writing all my life, principally poetry but also song lyrics and short stories. Currently I am working on two projects the first, working title "42" (a nod to Douglas Adams) is a collection of sci-fi stories which although are all stand alone shorts are also connected by various threads to create several larger over arcing storyline, on of which is the Meaning of Life. The second a fantasy set of novels, and what will be my labour of love called The Great Basset, who is the central character, a very old giant basset hound who stands a glorious 3 metres tall and befriends a small boy lost in his world.
