True bibliophile from Liverpool ( proper scouser too sound just like the derek acorah innit) but living in New York City,( where is that brill building!!) In addition to my book obsession I am a musician, I vacillate from being a rock singer and guitarist,And am an old punk as well ( love my series c rick! to musical theatre as I am a composer and librettist.( and i have prehensile feet do not be jealous) I am currently at Columbia Uni, a candidate for P.H.D I am soon to be an ethno musicologist, I taught film years ago, but music is the very bane of me! ( BRINGING TRUE AABA AND 11 OCLOCK NUMBERS BACK, IM A LITTLE BIT SONDHEIM IM A LITTLE BIT KERN) The musical I am composing now, I feel would be the first show in 35 years that would be worth seeing! Any producers about PM ME!! I also write 'screams of conscience' prose, MY POETIC LICENCE IS SUSPENDED. i am Atilla the Pun and more the Gladstone than the Disraeli. I have a love of lexicon and even speak in free verse, loved or hated for my garulous ways. Nothing succeeds like excess and I have more lines than Daniella Westbrook's mirror.( inside eastenders humour) DEREK AND CLIVE a posthumous cheers for inspiring my fringe group I started THE ALLHORRORSHOW. love you ad nauseum. I am an official member of menses, we meet once a month! .

i am an accomplished time traveller as advised by gary Sparrow ..I do have the recipe for the Philosphers Stone, its one part Kierkegaard
and the wit of Wittgenstein perhaps a bit of Spinoza

I am now shipping globally, if you see something you like and you are anywhere from Belaruse to Bora Bora,to Tenerife to Papau New Guinea dont be shy to ask



I applaud all the wonderful people of Bookcrossing for all of your undying allegiances to making this world a better read place. I am willing to share my repertoire, particularly looking to trade and leaving many books out there in the great void.
