Available for freelance writing commissions on a variety of subjects including family history, nostalgic Belfast and its famous people, shops, shoppers & shopping, the golden age of Hollywood (esp westerns) and humorous pieces on life's weird and wonderful. Op-eds, columns, non-fiction book reviews too.

With the manure-stench of leadership campaigning in the air, I know a thing or two about leadership  styles and behaviours.

Over 40 years, I have worked for 40 bosses. Neat, but true. I have worked for some idiots and numpties, many an ego, some harmless average managers, only one female and just two people I revere to this day. But I'll not bore you with too many details (unless anyone wants to commission a piece - see above) but I will share my one word appraisals of the 40.
