Forty seven years ago I drew a map of a world that did not yet exist: It was called Elsewhere. Being dyslexic I decided to describe that world in three dimensional forms rather than in the written form, making the characters and the landscapes in Porcelain alongside watercolour illustrations. For the next fifteen years I had exhibitions in Piccadilly and Chelsea and the work made its way into private collections around the world.
In 1993 I began a thirty year journey as a professional storyteller in the Oral tradition, telling over fifty five thousand stories in across the Uk, China and France. Playing African harp and American flutes to accompany the storytelling.
Ten years ago I finely decided that it was time to start writing the Stories of the fantastical world of Elsewhere.
The stories are laid down in three trilogies and in a sequence of Nine Books, with one book to be published each year.
Book One~The Hidden Destiny is now published,
Book Two~The Uprising will come out~ Summer 2024.
Each Book is accompanied by an Audio companion. Each title in the series, like the first, will be lavishly illustrated. They will also have maps, histories and back stories describing the 33 Realms of Elsewhere.
