I am not a doctor. Get that out of the way first.
I've been through several mostly unrelated jobs (including, but not limited to: gallery, gay bar, publishing house, paddle steamer, and a gentleman's outfitter), before settling down over a year ago and running a coffee shop in my local library. I then lost everything (profession- and finance-wise) to a nasty piece of council bureaucracy and a bad contract, and have since been clawing my way back up from nothing.
Stories are important to me, and I can appreciate most anything in life if a good story can be made from it. Or at least a good laugh, anyway.
I don't read or write as much as I feel I should, I have more suits than is probably reasonable, and I drink what I feel is exactly the right amount of tea.
