    Humor Writing For The Hell Of It

    France - Portfolio: 18

    Don't let the French flag put you off! I'm as English as they come, yet live in the south of France because the food, wine and weather can't be beat. As an airline pilot, I use my time off around the world to write mainly travel or humorous articles. I have had several magazine and web articles published, along with my first novel, Bad Altitude. I am a regular contributor to the SWAGGER and Mantality websites, as well as The SugarLoad, a superb satirical news site. In 2009 and 2011, my entries for the Boyne Writers Swift Satire competition were shortlisted. I enjoy edgy writing, often sailing very close to the wind, and bring a unique sense of humor to any subject.
