I am a retired headteacher having had an interest in music (anything from rock to opera with folk, jazz and blues thrown into the mix) from an early age. I play several string instruments, the guitar being my favourite which I teach. I still perform with local opera and drama groups and play in a rock band called 'Filthy Lucre'. Once I retired from my full time post I found the time to write short stories and plays having written several for my pupils to enact in school concerts. I am currently writing my second novel hoping one day to be published. I want to travel through life at a pace which will leave my body happily spent before my demise. We're off island hopping in the Dodecanese this summer, and Cambodia awaits us next year.
