About me

I was born in Bristol in 1948. I am now retired and enjoy playing golf (badly,) films, books and traveling. I have spent most of my working life in the antique trade, mainly as a restorer, and when younger, I was a semi-professional magician and a solo glider pilot. I have written six reference books on antiques and woodwork, one on Magic and one on the History of Firearms. I have now completed four crime thrillers and a book on the life of Samuel Colt. My current project is the Theory oan History of Flight. I am hoping that my website will be up and working soon.
