About me

Gender Male
Industry Science
Occupation Retired Medical Practitioner
Location Wiltshire, United Kingdom
Introduction I qualified as a doctor in 1969 and worked full time until my recent retirement. I was a partner in a large teaching practice in a "challenging" area of south east London. My wife and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary in 2009. We have three adult children and five grandchildren. I am now enjoying learning to write fiction - believing that to do this one has to read good fiction extensively and in depth. Much of my inspiration and material has been drawn from my professional career.
