where anything is possible

Simon the Writer

For many years, I used to be a teacher of English as an international language, but then I retired, and now I am just a writer, a full-time writer, you could say.

Ready to get down to some writing - and breakfast

In addition to the three above works, now published as ebooks, there is a fourth on the way, which will be available in the autumn, from mid-September, hopefully. It is another "A Year in a Life"-type memoir-based story. This time, the year runs from the hot, dry summer of 1976 until the following summer. It's working title is "Struggle for Sleep" but I may well change it.
