I enjoy playing chess (particularly online), however my enthusiasm is not matched by my skill. I am a family man and love spending time with the children although they often 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 Amazon.co.uk!
