The Business Allotment: tips for business start ups, lessons for life

Paperback, 87 pages with accompanying photos. Starting a business is much like working an allotment. You have a seed of an idea; you nurture it in a little clay pot until it struggles into the daylight; you stress about providing it with enough manure in the form of funding so that you can eventually transplant it into the wicked, wider world of the adult vegetable patch with all its attendant predators, parasites and pitfalls. This book aims to help you navigate your life as much as it is intended to help you tend your beautiful business idea.


There’s No Such Thing as an Englishman: poems from an Irritated England.

Paperback, 45 pages.

Launched on 31 January 2020, the day when the UK left the European Union and when the phenomenon known as Brexit was supposed to finally evaporate, with all those years of frustration, anger, sheer disbelief and irritation all coming to rest. But as Chairman Mao once said about what he thought the effects of the French Revolution were, it may be too soon to tell.
