"Always think of what you have to do as easy and it will become so." (Emile Cove)
Up to now I had a mental block about setting up a blog.
After reading the above quote, I thought, what the heck, it's got to be easy!
So here I am.
The birth of my blog coincides with the publication of my historical novel, Sea Dust, which was released in the UK on 31 December 2005.
You can read more about Sea Dust on my website.
You will also learn something of my love of tall ships and the sea and about some of the voyages I have taken.
Something you won't read about is my love of goats - yes, goats! I have been breeding them for 17 years and have written numerous magazine articles about them.
Today, I only have a small herd of about 40 South African Boer goats, but in the past have bred angora goats (which produce mohair fibre and not angora which comes from a rabbit) and some of the dairy breeds.
Perhaps one day I will put all my thoughts and experiences on paper. I know there are people out there who will be interested in reading them.
