Young Fool

It’s so funny how That now when I look back It’s with different eyes It’s so funny how That with my 20:20 retro vision My life becomes a set of lies   Did I let my life pass me by? Was fear of failure fear enough And so no matter how I say goodbye I know I didn’t give my best stuff   What could have, should have been Simply rejected for normality Now I look back to life as a teen It’s with an increasing sense of finality   It’s so funny how Now I really think about it Dream, imagine and drool It’s so funny how Now I am able to act upon it It seems as if I was just a young fool       I

Massive Download of Wizards Book

A staggering 601 copies of my new Kindle book – Wizards, Warlocks and Magicians – were downloaded across Amazon sites during its 5-day give away. That is over 100 copies a day and the book broke the top 1000 on Amazon.com for a period as well. Now, let’s hope that it sells just as well. Meanwhile, my new book is with my editor and a cover is being designed. This one will be both paperback and Kindle and the working title is How To Create Your Reality. I am in the process of putting up a website for this book and I will offer courses later as well for anyone interested. There will also be a video promo for the book as well. I am excited about this one as

Saying Goodbye To A Childhood Friend

Yesterday, I found out that an old friend of mine had passed away. I discovered this via Facebook and I am still shocked beyond belief. I still do not know what happened, but I do know that Andrew Wells has gone at age 56. I first met Andy when my family moved to Willerby from West Hull. He lived at 5 Thornwick Ave and I at 1 Thornwick Ave. He was a year older and ahead of me at school, but I recall that we both got acoustic guitars from Christmas – perhaps it was 1972 – maybe 1971. Immediately, we started to ‘jam’ together. Of course, neither of us could play a note on the guitar, but it was fun to imagine that we could. Over the next couple

Artful Words of Science

The Art of Science is my last book of poetry published earlier this year and I happen to believe it is my best so far….. It is full of angst, insights and ideas about life, reality and it all. My poetry is fluid wordplay using words to create feelings and conjure pictures of how I see things. All my poetry books are available on Kindle and in paperback format… Enjoy this sample from The Art of Science called Getting Older. I once thought that I would last forever Had no concerns at all Burned the candles at both ends And in the middle too But there came a time when I suddenly understood Time, was moving quickly on Everyone looks older But not necessarily wiser Certain songs are sung memories

Attacked by a Black Magician…

What is it like to be attacked by a black magician? Well, I wrote a short scene in my novel The Last Observer about a psychic attack on the hero of the story Stanley. My inspiration for this actually came from several sources. The first is the attack on Frabato the Magician by a satanic lodge in Germany that is recounted in the book of the same name by Franz Bardon (who was an amazing magician by all accounts and who I cover in my latest book – Wizards, Warlocks and Magicians). When I first read that account, I was terrified and it stuck with me for several decades as a crazy example of what it feels like to be attacked by magic. Another inspiration was another deeply influential book

Don’t Feed Their Greed

There is an election coming up in the UK soon and I won’t be voting. I am entitled to but I won’t – it just encourages them you see. Seriously. Politicians these days are career Politicians by and large. They have been learning to lie since college many of them with an eye on a lucrative career in politics. They are not in it to help you or me. Just themselves. A politician is close to where money and power lies. One goes with the other. It doesn’t matter if its fiddling expenses, taking back handers for politic favors or just enjoying a privileged lifestyle – they are ALL at it. Everywhere. The system is truly broken because of it. A politician has his hand in the till at its

Lady Luck…

What is the secret formula of success? I wish I knew. What makes the difference between fame and fortune or not? My guess is it is actually purely luck. It isn’t talent. Lot’s of talented people never find fame or fortune. It isn’t personality – the same applies – there are lots of personalities around. Perhaps it is perserverance? I really do think you have to have the personality, the talent and perserverance but what really tips the scale is luck. Being the right person at the right time in the right place. Either that or there is a Devil and people really do sell their souls….. actually, the latter wouldn’t surprise me either in some cases. Can you make your own luck? I think you probably can through visualization,

Reviews Always Wanted

Yes, I am asking again. If you have read one of my books can I ask you to leave a short review on Amazon? It can be an honest review – good or bad. Reviews are critically important for books and authors and while a book like My Haunted Life Too has sold over 1000 copies, it only has 10 reviews on the Amazon sites!! Please, do me a favor and write a review. I will even gift you a copy to review if you ask me… Thanks so much!!! likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

Jumping The Queue

Today, I am stood in a queue. I observe that there is a single line for two checks outs and the person at the front of the line selects the check out that first comes free. I am four or five back and I take my position and aimlessly think of nothing. As I get to the front of the line I suddenly think to myself that now it’s just me here, I am sure someone will push past me when the first check out comes free. The thought slipped out before I had a chance to stop it. As soon as it was released I knew….. The guy behind spotting his opportunity jumped in front of me to the left hand check out. I stood there dismayed. Then I
