I am retired chef, having served my time with John Grant, (wine @ food) , I`ve done season jobs, worked in Manchester, Blackpool, London, Oz, Florida, New Hamps.,2nd cook and baker on the weather ships, chief cook on the research ships, , altogether 25 yers at sea and loved every minute, especially the tankers.I`ve had a few poems published but that was with random press, a more or less vanity pub.. I`ve got a few short short stories and have been thinking of putting them together, along with a few poems, and see if I can get them published as a paperback, maybe with Lulu.
