Welcome

This website is home to what I enjoy doing best—writing. I used to be very concerned about being published. That was because I have been an academic all my life. But, the older I got I became more concerned about being read. This is far more than teaching and learning. It is about becoming part of situations, however surprising and unusual they seem. The thing that ties all the books on this website together, even though they may be academic in some cases, is humour. Almost everyone relates to humour; it makes all books accessible and welcoming. In many of the books the stories unfold around friends and acquaintances who brought places and situations to life for me. Now they can do this for you. This site is dedicated to them, especially those whose colourful personalities are no longer with us. 

If you have any questions or comments please email to the address in the Contact section. If you need help obtaining any of the books we can arrange that quickly and efficiently. We want you as another reader.
