- Born: in The United Kingdom.
- Description: Well where do I begin?
One of the things that grabs you when life gets tough, is just how strong the human mind can be! I was sailing through the stresses and strains of modern life, when right out of the blue, my seemingly great life was blown apart by the news of the Big C word! Yes, I had that unimaginable diagnosis, cancer, the one you never hope to hear.
It's at that point, you wonder what's next and what to do! Well, in my case, I dug deep, the deepest I've ever dug in my short life, and believe me I've been through some things I wouldn't want anybody to have to go through.
Have you ever thought something has happened for a reason?
This was my thought exactly. Here's how this book and hopefully many more to come, came about.
I had the idea for my first novel 'The Forgotten Mission, The Return', whilst on a family holiday to Florida, USA, back in 2010, it stayed an idea for a few months after returning. Until my wife, or should I say my rock, my best friend and mother to my two fantastic and talented children, encouraged me with the words; "You have to write these ideas down, they are fantastic!" as I made up yet another story for our children. Well I kind of took her advice this time and started putting pen to paper, or should I say fingers to tablet. After a few thousand words, the idea sat there waiting for me to carry on, never finding the time to do so. This is where that thing happened for a reason. My former job was very demanding and physical, and with the kind of Cancer I had and where it was, this stopped me from continuing in this line of work. Then unfortunately I had a reaction to the chemotherapy, leaving me with severe nerve damage all over.
All that aside I've never once lost my positivity. I took the bull by the horns and danced to the rhythm of the drip-stand. Making the most of what life had to throw at me! After all this isn't a trial run! So here goes.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile, I hope you enjoy the books.
