Sorry, but there will be no EPL analysis this season 2019/20.

I began writing novels and screenplays when I retired from... well, I don't like to think of it as retiring, I believe that I simply changed course. But you can read more about my background on the About me page.

Paperback, ebook - Kindle or Nook?

This is the burning literary question of the day, isn't it?

Perhaps you are like me and enjoy browsing the shelves of the local bookstore? There is nothing quite like the feel, the smell and the look of a new book, is there? And the anticipation of finding something new is exciting... a new writer... a different genre... a historical novel... a spine tingling thriller... an intriguing mystery... a tear jerking romance...

But, sadly, bookstores are closing at an alarming rate, while ebooks are rapidly becoming the new paperbacks.

The reason for the demise of the small, and some large, bookstores is obvious... books for sale online are cheaper... usually much cheaper...

... and an ebook reader makes a great Christmas present or birthday gift... especially if pre-loaded with one of my books!
