1. What do you do & how well do you do it?

I am an author that takes pride in his work and have written several articles in magazines prior to publishing my first novel. I like to think I do this well as I put my entire effort and time into writing, research and editing. It’s great fun and hard work and I love every moment of it

2. Where do you foresee yourself 12months from today?

Well at the moment I am currently working on my second novel “From a woman’s belly and out of a man’s mouth” which I hope to complete writing in about 7 or 8 months time. Having said that, it will subsequently take me on to the editing and proofreading stage to cover design and page layout, followed by finally getting published which means my book should be out in about 12 months time when I then go around the world doing book signing and basically promoting my book. So I have a bit of work planned out for the next 12 months.

3. What was one of the most memorable times in your life?

Throughout life I have had many memorable events. The memorable times in my life vary from being the worst times in my life and some being the best, either way they have become milestones that will be remembered forever. The best day of my life was definitely the day that I received my drivers’ licence. This day is one of the most memorable because of the feelings I had when I received it, the opportunities that were opened up for me and the long lasting benefits that I received from it that still exist today.

Getting my drivers’ license was an intense feeling that I will never forget. Just knowing that I had a drivers’ licence made me feel so free, as free as a bird flying in the open sky with no real place to go, just a desire to be free. I felt like I could do anything. I had new responsibilities like most adults, and I came to a realization that I had lived through one of the most important events in the process of growing up. This event opened up many possibilities for me such as interests in cars, driving skill improvement, and freedom.

4. Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?

Given resources I would definitely like to build a welfare state in 3rd world countries. We are all one people and it pains me to see some less fortunate than others.



5. What do you think of my daily blog? (Message for my readers)
