What sort of a life do you make for yourself when there is no focus? How does your life pan out as you ride the vicissitudes of a dog eat dog, cut throat employment market? How do you chase your dreams into adulthood to find love, happiness and success, when you carry inside yourself a childhood, dejected, insecure, unstable and with what tiny morsel of confidence you possess – in tatters, because you’ve been at the mercy of a bullying control freak – your own father? I have survived so much mental anguish with confidence renewed following a difficult and painful education in Blackpool. After handwriting 100 letters, I landed my first job - cutting my teeth as a London-based portrait and wedding photographer in early summer 1986. A life on the ocean wave then beckoned, which turned me from nervous novice ship’s photographer to expert smudger working aboard cruise liners worldwide. In 1990 I settled down, met the girl of my dreams and landed a fabulous job – Metropolitan Police Service forensic photographer. In the late 1990s I qualified as a Hendon-based instructor, leaving the police in 2004 to set up a business. If that wasn’t enough, I then retrained as a medical photographer in 2008 and I’m now a medical photography manager working for Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Both journey and path to success have been a miracle in the making.

Sitting around with friends, I would usually have an opportunity to bring up one of my stories. Hey, that reminds me of this vacation, that sports road trip, or one of the movies l worked on. Finally, After years of listening, my good friend Brenda blurted out: "Would you just write a....ing book." I’ve been to 27 countries and have a lot of stories, starting in the spring of 1970. Most of them good. Most of them fun and interesting. Some of them informative. (little bit of tour guide) And alcohol has a part in a "few" of them.
