About the Book
This is the second volume of my memoirs. To date there are four volumes with a fifth volume in preparation.
Whereas the first volume described my rooti', tootin', shootin' youth the second voulume contains some of my creative output which includes art, music, poetry, short stories, and a detailed photo-essay about the earthquakes which affected Christchurch, New Zealand in 2010 and 2011.

Trained as an organist and compose for that instrument, choral works, piano works, organ works, and symphonies for orchestra. Started breeding rhododendrons in 1985, but none registered as yet. Forced out of Christchurch, New Zealand in 2011 by earthquake damage, and now live nearby in Prebbleton. Not quite poor as a church mouse, but I'm working on it !
