Enjoy Photography/Writing. At present single, married four times, six children, oldest 47, youngest 17. Have lived,and worked in most parts of the world. Served in elite military unit. Well educated in spite of the fact,originally from the "Elephant and Castle" London, as is Maurice Micklewhite? Rubbed shoulders with rogues,and royalty. Survived Northern Ireland, and Saddams invasion of Kuwait, Ireland was worse. Fought fires in Kuwait, taken hostage in Nigeria. Quadruple by-pass 1996, retired in 1999. Still smoke, and drink, my 17 year old daughter thinks I'm cool. What more could you ask for.

  • A review of A Final Boundary
    by Learjet on 12/01/2005
    A tried and tested story, set in war torn Europe. Concept, is not new by any means, the presentation doesn't really help. Characters, appear very shallow, and shouldn't be, given the circumstances they're operating in. Dialogue, the French, and Spanish are not really required. Apart from that, it's fairly average. Story should move at a faster pace, the first ten pages are... read
  • A review of The Fisherman's Ring

Dialogue, is quite well written, but in places suffers from overstatement,... read

    An interesting tale, only to be found in certain parts of the Emerald Isle. The concept is a good one, but allows itself to get bogged down with irrevelant points in the plot. Characters, portray the Irish flavour quite well, and believable. However a little more defining is called for. Dialogue, at times is good but wanders around on others. Story, moves along at a fairly... read

    Thank you for taking the time to read and review The Knowledge of Good and Evil. You've given me a lot of really good advice.

    I've applied your observations on proper formatting and eliminating author's intrusions to the revision-in-progress. That was easy. Your more substantive insights (about character and story), well... that'll take more time to work out. However, your reactions have got me thinking more clearly, and hopefully I'll end up with a stronger piece as a result.

    Thanks again.
