Hello Folks, please bear with me – I am updating this site as I go along, which may lead to confusion. I hope to make some sense of it all as soon as I can. Thank you for your support.

Did anyone ever say this to you, “You have had such an interesting life; why don’t you write a book?” Many people said these words to me. One of them being a journalist.

Many years went by before I decided to ‘write a book.’ When I look back today, I must smile at the many attempts I made to write a book. Every attempt ended up in failure. I cannot remember how many

I’m working on the site and preparing it as the base from which those who have dreams to fulfill can blast off from here.

While we wait for site completion, feel free to complete the form on the ‘contact ‘page, and let’s discuss your dreams. I give you this public undertaking that I will never use your details outside our communication
or spam you with any advertising.
