updated Nov 14, 2018

your love is like liquor your kisses an elixir I look into your eyes clearly high as a kiteflying high like Superman in the moonlight where’s my girl Lois lane she must taken a pill to numb the pain. I feel bad for her though cause now she knows my secret she knows how well I keep it hidden locked safely away in my heart in my mind together forever will i try to be the man I could have been back before we started out as friends I would be remiss if I denied you one last kiss. one last kiss upon your lips as we parted ways till the day I see you again in my heart you know we’re more than friends.

Once itch away from death, violence is a virtue. When a man loves a woman he will fight for her. When a woman loves a man she will lie for him. When two men love the same one; one must die. Not even God can prevent what happens on August 8th.

An Expats Experience's of Living in Turkey
2 parts / 2 pages
,
updated Apr 06, 2015

My book ‘An Expat’s Experiences of Living in Turkey’ is based on the many and varied experiences that have occurred during the past 25 years spent living in Turkey. It starts with how as an Englishman I came to arrive here in 1989 and why within a very short space of time my late wife and I decided to buy a plot of land and have a house built in a quite village down on the Mediterranean Coast. What followed from our decision to uproot and move to Turkey is a mixture of joy, happiness, distress, frustration, grief and finishing with extreme happiness, with my now living in a completely new environment and enjoying a second life here in Turkey. Scattered throughout the book are various tips and suggestions on a variety of things that can help those thinking of either just buying a holiday home here, of moving to live here permanently.

The Crystal Garden
1 part / 1 page
,
updated Dec 06, 2013

The story is primarily for children, from 4 to 6 years of age.  However, all ages have given positive feedback.  Originally written for a boy, Jack, who was dealing with a memory, 'not feeling safe and at home on the earth', held deep within his subconscious. The story if about a merman, Gavin who lives beneath the sea, returning to the earth where he finds his earth sister and family.    Introductory paragraphs!    All sorts of wonderful creatures live in the sea!  Some we know and call ‘fish’, than there are others known as ‘mammals’.  The difference is that fish lay eggs, while mammals feed their babies milk.  In the ocean the whales and dolphins are all mammals and their babies have so much milk to drink that help them to grow.   The strongest and biggest is the ‘blue’ whale, much, much larger than an elephant!  Dolphins however, move very quickly with great speed in the water.  They travel so fast that they can keep up with a high powered speed boat, travelling beside it and sometimes in front, leading the way!    The ocean has many creatures and two in this story are what some people would call ‘mythical’, which means that they are not ‘real’ and therefore, do not exist.  While some people have seen them, especially sailors, there are lots and lots of people who have not seen them, so they do not believe that merpeople really exist, despite the many stories and pictures thatcould fill several libraries.

Destiny: beginning
2 parts / 2 pages
,
updated Dec 28, 2013

This is a medieval story filled with monsters and normal people, not epic heroes who at the beginning can fight beside an army. this is where the past affects the future and the past is not what it seems. this has a sort of amnesia but the way I have put it will tie into the story later and with one chapter I can't do much
