Having not been diagnosed with Dyslexia until the age of 33, I found school frustrating, and left me directionless.
At the age of 19 I found myself in the armed forces, serving in a few locations around the world, seeing behind the scenes, if you will.
I then drifted around various jobs and experiences, which would prove fruitful in my later years, owing to the man characters I have encountered.
At the age of 27 I Joined the London fire brigade and met my soulmate.
The discovery of my dyslexia opened my eyes to a whole new world, one I'm still coming to grips with.

I received an email recently asking to submit a blog about my twisted journey, and I just thought “Wow, they want me to write a blog. What’s a blog?” So a quick internet search followed by a flick through on what the other “Twisted” writers had written led me to create what I think is a blog. But I’m probably way off track.
