Writing is a habit that, once formed, cannot easily be broken.

If, as the famous lexicographer, Samuel Johnson, reportedly said, "No man but a blockhead ever wrote, except for money," then I am prepared to stand confessed as a blockhead many times over, having spent most of my years faithfully engaged in the practice of putting words together (nearly always in hellbent defiance of Johnson's opinion), as evidenced by the varied examples to be found here.

Over a period of decades, my activities as a writer have resulted in a body of work that encompasses a novel, short stories, essays, articles, and sketches.

One of my essays, celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Rolling Stones, was included in the anthology, That Devil Music: Best Rock Writing 2014, published by Excitable Press.

My untutored attempts at photography, comprising a casual range of common objects, distinctive sights, and passing moments, can be seen at Wayward Views.
