Personal Profile

I enjoy playing chess (particularly on-line) however my enthusiasm is not matched by my skill. I am a family man and love spending time with the children although they often do drive me crazy.

A keen hobby of mine is fiction writing. I have written several short stories and also published two novels, both of which are in print and in the top 200,000 best sellers on!
