About me.

In the throw of things, my book is actually tells all there is to say about “about me”.

Born in 1951 in West London, living in Hayes and Hillingdon, with School in West Drayton, I first struck out as a so-called adult in 1969. After a disastrous attempt to become a chartered accountant, in Uxbridge, and a more laid back period selling fruit and veg in Hayes, I struck out for Liverpool and University-linked Teacher training. Thereafter . . . the book tells all.
