What can I say? I’m an Anglo-German 60+ year old professional writer (technical author to you, sunshine despite a recent job title that said User Information Manager), with an obsession with motorsport – particularly Formula Three (and a consequent sideline as a motorsports journalist and photographer though since the end of 2015 I have now stepped back from that), a tendency to drink too much Champagne, and an ever-increasing collection of books and DVDs.
After a 10-year spell as a contract technical author roaming round Europe like some high-tech nomad (France, Belgium, Austria, back to Belgium, a brief spell in the UK, the Netherlands, and finally France again), I finally bit the bullet and in 2004 took my first permanent job since 1994. A couple of years later I went back to contract work for a while, but since 2006 I’ve been a permanent employee for a couple of companies.
So what annoys me apart from airports? Bad writing, people who are not open-minded, bureaucracy, modern packaging, removal men… the list goes on. Oh, and did I mention that I loathe airports? If you ever hear of some woman having an attack of air-rage at Heathrow, it could very well be me!
I’ll be using this blog for all sorts of things, including rambling about running, reporting on restaurants, talking about our travels, archiving race reports, press releases, and related bits of motorsport writing and photography as done by myself and Lynne. These are available to anyone to see as they’re already in the public domain. However, the copyright still belongs to me/Lynne… with all that that implies (and one of the things that that implies is that if you steal anything without asking and I catch you doing it, I will come after you).
