Something went wrong. Please try your request again later. My mother had more than a drop of gypsy blood in her and my father was a war veteran, able to turn his hand to just about anything. My first home was a draughty beach hut in Walbaswick, Suffolk, UK. Later on, the ever-growing family upped sticks and moved to Lowestoft, also in Suffolk.
I spent a goodly chunk of my life there, almost succumbing to the cloying sea-mists, massive alcohol consumption and sticky sands of that drab town.
Though possessed by a love of words and language, I was not a good citizen. In court 28 times and I spent a very short period of time in prison on remand for car theft.
Dyslexic, desperate and ill-educated, I was mad for the material things I imagined would give my life lustre.
A lust for learning kicked in at age I wangled my way into the University of East Anglia as a mature student. I did English literature and loved it.
At that time, that avuncular, easy-going, Malcolm Bradbury taught under-grads creative writing. I drank up the classes like a parched desert absorbs water. I decided I was going to be a writer. I left UEA, wrote thirty or forty short stories, sold none and sulked for three years. Then through a mix of ancestral urges and amazing co-incidence I stumbled into the trade of palmistry. Though a total sceptic, I met a world- class palmist who convinced me of its value and educated me in its subtle intricacies.
I wrote these books out of frustration at the mass of books out there that were full of outdated references and gobbledegoook.
