In the early 90's I began writing comedy for radio & TV. Among my successes are "The News Huddlines" for BBC Radio 2 and also "Weekending" for Radio 4. At the time I was part of the London comedy writing group, Hugh More. On the TV front, my first success was a quickie on the Kate Robbins show, followed by a sketch on the Bobby Davro show, as well as quickies for Peter Vincent's "Who do you do?" Other TV credits include German and Belgian TV comedy shows, as well as being part of a writing team working on a pilot sitcom for German TV. In more recent years, I have concentrated on writing short stories of which to date, eight have been published. In tandem with this, I have also had published a couple of poems. I also contribute stories to the local "Talking Papers for the Blind". Currently, I am involved with former Hugh More colleagues in writing each week a Sunday Gag. This is done on a round robin basis. Each week one of the gang chooses a subject, and the rest have to provide a funny tag line - it keeps the comedic juices flowing!

Returning home to his Fenland bungalow after a round of golf, widower Harry Smith discovered a hand-written note on his door-mat. It was from Juliet Dejardin, Secretary of the local Garden Club. In the note, she wrote ”Dear Gardener, you are obviously a talented gardener...” and she wondered if he would be prepared to enter his garden in the Village Open Garden Day event. Harry wasn’t a “talented gardener”, or indeed a gardener at all; for that, he employed a local handyman. However, he decided to make contact with Juliet Dejardin. Could that be the start of a romantic friendship? Harry was soon to find out....

When Jake Lewis phoned his wife to tell her he would be late home from the office, he had no idea about the unnerving experience that was to confront him. Having missed the last train out of Euston to Watford, he waited for the first morning train. It was at the Station that he noticed a young girl of about twenty who looked as if she belonged to another age. At her side was a small black haired dog. Where was she going, and why the black haired dog? Jake’s unnerving experience was about to begin...
