Born, against the odds, to a recently widowed artist, in a neighbour's bed. Husband, father, novelist, playwright, short story writer, blogger, word wrangler, committed agnostic, romantic open-minded optimistic radical liberal, sometimes dangerous to know. Raised by a mother who knew what love meant and a stepfather who lacked imagination but loved and educated me in things natural and worldly.
