As Napoleon's said... "Luck is half of everything"
Moving into my seventh decade feels like the perfect time to tell some stories.
I’ve opted to start the ball rolling by developing this multimedia site.
Click TELEVISION to find documentries that I researched, produced and commissioned.
to get a good insight into my prolific father's 600 books, and two I have written.
to get a hint of what drives me.
The time to work out where to go next will be when this site is half full of passionate, controversial, opinionated stories …
My glass has always been half full.
