I hope that you will find these pages to be interesting, informative and entertaining. Here you will find full information about the three books that I have written. If they give you as much pleasure to read as I got from writing them, then I will be very satisfied. They have very different story lines and have different styles too, in order to adequately cover the subject matter. Apart from my own satisfaction in bringing these three books to print, and telling three good tales, it is ultimately you, the reader, who will be the final judge.

NEW! The Reluctant Hotelkeeper

A Memoir

My third book, “The Reluctant Hotelkeeper”, is a prequel to my first and explores my life as a hotelkeeper from when I left school until sale and retirement some thirty-five years later.
