I'm an American citizen living in the U.K. An Editor in Law publishing before going freelance as a copy editor. Until I had the profound learning and life-changing experience of a mental breakdown (Nature's way of telling you to get a new outlook on life). Now retired, I volunteer for the mental health charity Mind. Also, since the start of the Covid pandemic, providing support for vulnerable people living locally. I'm the author of "Tuesday's Child: The Life And Death of Imogen Hassall", the biography of the actress and "Face" of the 1960's and 70's, who took her own life in 1980. Also, the "pulp fiction" action-adventure novels "Cool Cat"; "Hell On Route 666: Cool Cat 2"; "Born To Be Bad: Cool Cat 3"; and "Drums Of The Lost Gods", homages to the cult movies of the 1970's and the vintage Pulps of the 1930's, published by Midnight Marquee. Published on Amazon, my hard-boiled "noir" crime novel "The Big Farewell" is now adapted as a screenplay with its sequel "Guilty City" to follow. My aim is to bring a fresh twist while remaining true to the spirit of this classic genre.
