Walking Hadrian’s Wall
Wallsend to Bowness-on-Solway

Walking Hadrian’s Wall, Wallsend to Bowness-on-Solway takes you on my walking trek along Hadrian’s Wall and across England in the late summer of 2022. I walked along the famous Hadrian’s Wall built in AD 122 by Emperor Hadrian. Over a period of 10 days, I crossed the country. Starting on the east coast at Wallsend I walked to Bowness-on-Solway on the west coast. The journey has been recreated with watercolor illustrations and daily descriptions of the adventure. Over the 84-mile journey, I met many wonderful people and experienced Roman and English history.  Available at Amazon.

My own story of how I came to writing

My own story is that my earliest ideas of what I want to do from age 5 on were to, own my own business, work with TV and film, make products and write books. I have now done all of these things. The hardest one was writing books. I am dyslexic. For me, writing was just about impossible. I could barely put a sentence together for most of my life. If I don’t get a word out correctly the first time it is gone. I was the kid in class that built the projects to get out of the writing assignment. All through high school and college, I struggle to write anything. I changed my major in my senior year, the second semester just so I wouldn’t have to write a thesis.

When I worked in the corporate world different managers would help me out with memos and writing. I didn’t learn to write until in was in my early 50s. I then started blogging and just forced myself to put words down, I was just determined to write stuff. Around that time I just happen to take an internet marketing course that made you write out a business plan in small little chunks. I did that, combined with my blogging and when the course was done some kind of switch happened in my head and I could write. And I haven’t stopped since. It just pours out. It is all non-fiction, how to kind of stuff but never stops.

Now I love to write. It went from torture to joy. I plan writing assignments for when I fly on planes. I take off days and go and write. It is such a joy to be able to put words down. I wish I had some fiction stories in my head, but I don’t, but I am ok with what I write. You never know how it is going to work out. Never give up
