I write, therefore I am.
All my life people have been telling me what I can't do. Being a stubborn son of a ....all my life I have been proving them wrong. My first victory was a teacher who laughed at me, saying I wasn't capable of being on his course. Laugh! I nearly wet myself when I turned in a paper and took 125% getting every point and every bonus point on offer! He actually asked my to join his advanced group, but where was the challenge in that?
Oh dear, I'm not making a good impression am I?
Well okay, how's this then, I built our house. No, you misunderstand, I didn't do what most people do and project manage a team of highly skilled individuals who built a house for me; no, I built our house. From digging out the footings, to cementing on the chimney pot and EVERYTHING in between, I built our house.
Did that impress you? Hope so, but building a house is easy, your average brick layer does not require a university degree (have one of those too, if it matters). What is really difficult to do when setting out to build a house is getting planning permission on a green field site, in the green belt, in open countryside. Apparently, and everyone I knew told me this, that's impossible. You just can't do that, it is against policy. So I changed the f.....g policy! I built our house.
Still not making a good impression am I? Sorry about that, but you see I firmly believe that if a person really wants something hard enough and works hard enough to achieve it, then almost anything is possible.
So my bio; I have written magazine articles, I've written newsletters and periodicals, I've written books and screenplays, some yet to be published. I don't pretend to be a professional. I don't lie to pad out my CV. I am what I am: Hard working, capable and versatile. If you're interested, google me (I don't sell cars or motorcycles) I'm the Philip Onions who farms, and they said I'd never be able to do that either, but I gave up listening to what people say I can't do.
Unique traits: I can make the impossible happen.
