Description

It is now over a decade since I almost died from a medically induced toxic state related to medicines prescribed for mental health issues. I now have had four previous books published by Chipmunkapublishing and gained two new qualifications to add to my the B.A (Hons) before the toxicity, a Certificate in English Studies at Warwick University and this year have completed a Dip. H.E. gained at the Open University.

The doctors at the time thought, once I had survived the toxicity, the only way ahead would be a sort of vaguely animated death in long stay psychiatric care. I have proofed them wrong which is not to say my body and mind have totally recovered, but it illustrates that adversity can be overcome.

When confronted with one’s mortality in a quite palpable form you either sink or swim psychologically: I swam. A desire to push the boundaries of both the creative and the intellectual is pervasive in my work and life, I know of no other Path.

My writing and love of ideas is my salvation, not a pastime but a vocation.
