About Me

I am a person who was born in London some time ago and who is still alive. I work for a living. 'this is my england' is both my pen name and the name of my blog, which contains bits and pieces of poetry, some short stories, lots of my photography, some comment on news/current affairs/media and a lot of banging on about my favourite football (soccer) team.

Why do you write?

If I didn't write things and take pictures, I'd be completely immersed in just two things on a day-to-day basis - family life (which is fine) and corporate doublethink (which is necessary, but has some toxicity). So the writing etc. is the change of gears and the little bit of gamble that's needed so as not to morph completely into someone I wouldn't recognise.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Charles Bukowski, John Fante, Knut Hamsun, Celine, Josef Skvorecky, Kurt Vonnegut, Patrick Hamilton, Julian Maclaren-Ross, Dostoevsky, Kafka, Adam Mickiewicz, Ismail Kadare, Herta Muller & others.
