About Me

I have been writing on and off about all sorts of things for a long time. Musings, rants, rambles and actual works of fiction are a staple of my blogging life. I envy those amazingly talented folk who can write poetry or music because I certainly can’t! This blog is not that. I just ramble… so I hope you enjoy!

I have many pieces of work here, some in progress, some completed. I apologise for editing errors which are my own as it is not my strength – my creativity is, however, so enjoy my stories. Also any comments I make are entirely my own opinion. I do not speak for anyone but myself.
