Born in Chase Farm Hospital in London where my mother was a Staff Nurse. Because of my father’s health, his doctor advised moving to the coast. Hence to Poole we came in late 50’s. My father died about 1980, my mother in 1998. I suffer from depression, insomnia, self harm, suicidal, PTSD, Asperger’s, back pain etc. Reading and writing have given me a usually happy place to be albeit short lived. Using my film as an interim milestone, to be completed as I envisaged it. Then to make the pop-up book which makes that film redundant.
