The writer studied Architecture and has spent the past twenty years specialising in the designing and hands on refurbishment of Medieval oak framed buildings. Part of this process is the preparation of design drawings by hand and supporting pen and ink sketches. He also paints in watercolours and oils.
His involvement in the creative process of designing buildings, awakened in him a desire to catch and put innovative ideas into words. To tell a story from the imagination as he would paint a picture with pen, pencil and brush, or design a building, so is his desire to do so with words.
