Resident in what is currently called The United Kingdom in a chunk known as NE Wales (a bit west of Liverpool).
Married for 45 years to the same gal, 3 children, 5 grandchildren. Work for 45 years in various branches of the UK's Civil Service (never a dull moment- not in a good way)
I have been writing for 30+ years and until I started taking seriously all the advice and support from Word Press had badly written and self-published a fantasy trilogy with nothing to show for it, except for a mention on Amazon.
That was all written back in July(ish) 2015 when I was in one of comedic/ironic phases. Since coming under the more maturing, positive, adventurous and productive influences of the Wordpress Community I have tried to work outside of that bubble.
Since that hapless daze I have published through Amazon Kindle 'A True History of The Isles' ' (a history of the Isles Ireland, Scotland Wales & England) Vol I & II which is less than serious and 'Of Patchwork Warriors' first volume of a multi-volume Fantasy. Currently finishing up Vol II 'Our Skirmishers of Lace, Fire and Steel'.
After these few years I have decided to separate my 'bloggings' 'heroicallybad' will continue to be dealing with writing in all its manifold facets. I will continue to support folk in their own efforts.
My intention is to write until I am summoned from this World Physical, while I am still physically on the planet I will encourage others to write. Not subscribing to any sort of publishing conventions my advice on that side of the subject is not the best.
However as I am something of a ranter and given to polemics there is another blog 'Raging from the Lectern', this is ferocious and I don't care who I upset, the world is growing tight on resources and space, we have no room for idiots of any sort, they are all my targets. No apologies!
