I was inspired and influenced by women I had been in contact with. Not necessarily meeting them in person but generally via the internet. If they were on dating websites they generally used pseudonyms in order not to be recognized by anyone who may know them. _ is intrigued me as to why they felt or needed to be on these websites in the first place. I wondered about their motives, did loneliness instigate their actions, did they do it just for fun or were they actually looking for another partner or even a discreet lover.
I was born on the 18th March 1953 at my parents’ home in the village of Spratton near Northampton. My father was a leather tanner and my mother was the daughter of a brewer. I went to the local village school before I was sent to a boarding school called Beachborough in the village of Westbury near Brackley. From this school, I was sent to Oundle which is a private school near Peterborough. After Oundle, I went on a round the world trip with a friend, before spending a year at The Royal Agricultural College in Cirencester.
