Grew up in a mining community before leaving home at 17 and discovering that I was entitled to know the arts! Spent time working in London and Liverpool absorbing as I went along. Early 20s entered the criminal justice field: mad, bad, sad, evil and tormented are not just the preserve of an artist.
Utterly eclectic in my tastes in all things: -failed painter and backroom writer, so I make no claim on poetry!
Love travel, philosophising and all things Italian. Married with one child.

A bourbon tang
DESIRE doesn't do it justice... more »
