When it comes to me talking about me and my books I’m a disaster!
Do I mention being abandoned in the African bush with a 9-week old baby? That I’ve lived in 8 countries, in a mansion, a one bed flat and on a boat? Meeting kings, presidents, international artists and peasants? Earning my living by writing after I got fired from my teaching post?
Or what about that live radio broadcast with a bayonet digging into my neck? I could tell you about running my own video production company, and tales about some of the famous people I’ve worked with. The problem is there is so much it took 3 books to put it all down on paper and that’s only the bits I remember.
I’m retired now. No, I’m pretending, and working 24/7 writing books and trying to sell the wretched things. Once I make the first million or five I’ll be off sailing round the world scribbling on my mega yacht.
I guess I should really mention my books? I’m a multi-genre writer. Since my time writing for radio and television, I’ve tackled subjects as bizarre as splitting the atom, how to climb a ladder, how a bakery operates, series on maths, English and science, good business practices, how they make potato crisps, programmes for tourism and local and national government and so on and so on and so on.
Add in mayoral speeches, adverts, brochures, my newspaper column and magazine articles, and I’m sure you get the message.
