Author has written 1 story for Fantasy.

Briefly, I'm generally termed 'old-fashioned,' but hopefully in the best sense of the word.

In more detail, I'm first and foremost a Catholic. My faith has an influence on all that I do, and I'm exceedingly honoured and grateful to be a part of it.

Secondly, I'm a musician. I love to listen to music, and of many sorts. Classical, particularly Mozart; Irish and Scottish folk songs; various musicals; various soundtracks; and last but certainly not least, all Gilbert and Sullivan. However I play more than I listen. Violin, piano, classical guitar, and of recent times the organ. I sing as well, and find it my chief employment.

I'm a great reader. My favourite author is and most likely always will be G.K. Chesterton, though I'm also a fan of Belloc, Tolkien, Austen, the Bronte sisters, Elizabeth Gaskell, Dickens, and several other British authors. I also enjoy spending an evening deeply immersed in something of a more challenging nature, such as St. Thomas Aquinas or St. Anselm, or, on the other end, passing a summer's afternoon reading some light-hearted children's book.

I love to watch movies, but have seen hardly anything from recent times. I love black-and-white films, for their atmosphere, their acting, and simply because of their black-and-whiteness. Hitchcock films are great favourites, and as far as actors go, I'm a great fan of James Cagney.

I do believe these are the categories profiles of this sort generally cover! All of these things have influenced my writing to at least some degree. Though I don't often have the time to write, unlike days gone by, I hope what I do manage to put out is pleasing, and I welcome any constructive criticism, as I'm always seeking to improve.

In conclusion, AMDG.
