I took the sword from the stone and eventually found my Holy Grail in writing humour,satire,irony and edgy Britwit after following such icons in my baby/child/adult Heroes of Comedy. Some are not with us like, Peter Cooke and Dudley Moore, Les Dawson, Dave Allen, Dick Emery, The Pythons who inspired me to try my best to create a smile on the faces of people with cruel sense of humour for the incorrigible bigotry and stereotyping most would be disgusted with. I make no apology for judgemental idiocy, or blatant prejudice. It is a rich harvest for comedy that ingratiates itself without me having to do much at all but write it in the first place. My passion is to see people on their way home from work and giggling at Dr Farquar. My humour is a little dark and with a bitter twist, but the messages are there of social values and breaks the taboos to push an envelope stuffed with sometimes bawdy and irreverent content. I also write batches of short stories of esoteric, or psycho-thriller plots. Thanks for reading this.

Do you have any advice for new writers?Stay motivated. Write every moment you get. Keep a notebook or put ideas on your Android. If you can't find a humanoid robot ?Scribble on a friends. My best ideas come to me when I have nothing reported in the first place. Write when you are in any mood particularly when you are suicidal, but not when its too late.Walk through cemeteries and look at headstones when searching for a fresh plot. Great ideas for names of characters on tombs. "Please would woman step closer. Here lies Clint Taurus, a man of vision and can still see up your skirt" bringing the deceased back to life and thus immortalised in your story.
