Having spent many years as a computer engineer, which is a solitary task - just you and the computer equipment - and as we all know, computers, electronic games, TV shows and mobile phones and tablets are strongly prevalent in today’s society - I began to observe that some of the natural interactions between family and friends are gradually eroding, if not already gone for some.
It sometimes feels like the simple joy of laughing or crying among family and friends is being replaced by beeps, bops and demands to ‘add new features’ or ‘why doesn’t this work?’ or ‘who’s hogging the Wi-Fi?’.
So I set out to create a fun and exciting series of children’s short stories, with lots of adventure and splashes of humor, all paced to hold children’s attention whether reading or listening… at least that’s my hope!
The best thing about Christmas for me... has always been following the expressions of concerned anticipation on the faces of children, as they eagerly open their Christmas present, through to the explosive joys of their true celebration. A sight that should never be missed :-)
This year is special because... just like every other year, my family and friends are that little bit older, and I am that little bit fatter and definitely none the wiser, but still always truly thankful and overly contented.
