Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you'll return often and always find something of interest about my world and what inspires me to pick up a pen. (This is a figure of speech, unfortunately. My handwriting is terrible!) Here's what I've been up to recently...

What the Dickens!

I’ve always loved a challenge and the latest one was to write the ‘next chapter’ of a well known story.

Scanning the book shelves that line most rooms in the house, I came across A Tale of Two Cities. It always seemed a shame to me that Sidney Carton – forever pictured in my mind as Dirk Bogarde – had to die at the end. Well, now he doesn’t and you can read the update on my Stories and Poetry page.

Maybe one day I’ll also ‘rescue’ Romeo and Juliet from their fate!
