My Bio My details? I've always hated trying to promote myself. And as I'm dealing with cancer I'm certainly not going to spend time worrying about this kind of thing now. If you like my photo books and want to buy one then that's great, enjoy!

Remember, life isn't permanent - appreciate what you have, and strive for what you want to be!


Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Thinking? I'm doing! Shards From A Broken Mirror - a retrospective of photography, digital art, poetry and musings. And probably the work which will prove to most people's satisfaction that I'm totally barmy ;o)
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
I've picked some less well known ones...

Jostein Gaarder's 'Sophie's World': A charming story about the history of philosophy with a great twist.

Jane Siberry (now called ISSA): An off-the-wall Canadian singer with amazing imagination. And she's brave - you pay what you want to for her music.

Tara Blaise: Try her album 'Dancing On Tables Barefoot'. Summer fun with a deep undercurrent.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
Hal Duncan's 'Vellum': a wicked, clever re-imagining of earth and the battle of good and evil.
