Work in progress – 

My work-in-progress is a narrative non-fiction celebration of story and storytelling from a social-historical perspective. Nick-named, with affectionate exasperation, the magnum opus, it is a formidable project requiring massive research – but a labour of love. The idea has been fermenting in my mind for a couple of years and will no longer be put aside.

If my blog posting becomes a little irregular over coming months, you will know why.
