Book Two

More Fun With Dick And Shane.

Memoirs of a Houseboy



As with my first effort I've endeavoured to write up and round off events that were mentioned but not properly followed through at the time. I've enjoyed it. I hope you do too. As well as daily mumblings it includes the following chapters.


The Houseboy Gets Sent To The Naughty Chair


The Houseboy And The Butterfly


The Houseboy Strikes Back




The Derailment Of A Houseboy...A Train Journal


Put Your Ear Down Close To Your Sole And Listen Hard 


A Tiny Tale Of A Bad Boy's Sunday


Read an excerpt from More Fun With Dick And Shane 



Book Three


Memoirs of a Houseboy

This rightly belongs with my 2007 memoir, but I decided to give it a book of its own. It's all about Dick and Shane's Civil Partnership, which was nothing to them, but a pretty big deal to me.

Bonds of Affection

‘Think of me as a gay male version of Flora Thompson writing not so much about Larkrise to Candleford as Arsehole to Breakfast Time. The BBC will never commission it as a series, but there you go, it’s their loss.’

In answer to a recent question:
I'm very grateful that anyone should choose to purchases my ramblings. Where you choose to buy is entirely up to you, whatever suits you best. Thank you for wanting to buy and read.
I will say this - I believe Smashwords is a more honest friend to self-pub pundits such as myself. I believe they have more respect for authors than Amazon does and they pay a fairer royalty.

December 2016
The Winkle On The Bus
And Other Stuff

Presenting yet another stand alone chapter of memoir to appease those STILL waiting for 'Revelations.'
Call this a way of getting back into the practice of writing or call it chronic procrastination. The 'winkle' in the title refers to an incident earlier this year, the other stuff is, well, other stuff.


The winkle on the bus ‘adventure’ (such as it was) happened one day in February 2016, but like most things in life it was part of a butterfly effect* rather than a truly isolated event. Its origins come under the remit of ‘other stuff’ and stretched back to the previous autumn, October 2015, so that’s where I’ll start. I’ve run out of magic glitter (never fear, Peeps, it is on order) so we’ll have to rely on the Dorothy from Kansas mode of travel for this memoir chapter, so dig out your ruby brogues and slip them on. Don’t worry if they pinch a bit. I’ve got Compeed plasters in the event of blisters. Got the shoes on? Great, let’s go then. Everyone hold hands, close your eyes and start clicking those heels together. Travel back with me. It won’t take long, you’ll be back in time for tea and there’s no danger involved so you won’t need insurance.

*Disclaimer: use of the term ‘butterfly effect’ does not mean Ashton Kutcher features anywhere in this account. Sorry, Peeps, I did try to hire him as a guest star, but his fees were too high for this humble houseboy.


August 2015

Ahem, adopts best Ringmaster's tone:

Presenting, for your delectation (I hope)


A humble stand alone chapter of memoir to appease and tide over those houseboy fans eagerly awaiting the publication of my next full-length work 'Revelations.’ Whenever that might be! Patience, people, patience! ;-)The Snail Affair deals with a more recent incident in this boy's life, taking place, as it does, in July 2015. An old adversary drops in for a visit after Shane makes an announcement at breakfast one morning.

Click on the cover



Christmas at Leo’s does exactly what it says on the cover. It tells the tale of Christmas at Leo’s, 2008.
In essence, I suppose it’s a bridge between ‘Gilliflowers, bonds of affection’ and pending, very pending, memoir ‘Revelations.’ 


I wasn’t looking forward to spending Christmas as part of a house party at Leo’s place to begin with. The booze ban had taken the lustre right off the party season for me.

What’s Christmas without a flagon of ale or a classy glass of fancy fizz? Boring!

A visit to my mother, on the day before Christmas Eve, did nothing to lift my mood. It triggered a welter of memories and emotions that made Christmas seem even less appealing.

Stuff the season of goodwill.

I just wanted to be left alone to brood. I wasn’t given the choice. I was spending Christmas at Leo’s whether I liked it or not. It proved to be eventful in its own way.

Details within.
