I am a miners son in my late forties. My upbringing was a working class mining community in Fife, Scotland. Paradoxically I am proud of this but also have detested aspects of it. I have worked in many jobs over the years; mostly manual or in the care industry. Presently I am the family carer and don't anticipate a return to other employment. I like to write short stories that make folk think.
Interests tv, gym, walking, writing, reading
