Joe’s book page.

I have just managed to update my website which has details of the books I have written, I seem to have become a computer whizzkid, this small step for man may not seem much to you dear reader but to me it’s close to rocket science.

I would be delighted if you would visit, if nothing else but to make all the hard work worth it!



About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work due to losing my agent when I became a full time carer to my mother who had dementia. and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother and shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse. I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase.

  1. Looks good Joe. The graphics are very appealing.

    • Thank you, I’m so delighted as I’m useless with computer stuff, I wish I had been younger and had some lessons in computer stuff when we were at school, in my day you didn’t need much training to fill an ink pen and write with it!

    oh it is beautiful! Love the wall of books pic at the top… grats on a job well done!

    • I can’t tell you how pleased I was with it, especially as the chap who does my computer stuff tried for ages to make something of the site and failed. Even the wordpress help people couldn’t help with finding the right theme (template) as it wouldn’t open up but I just kept persevering doing each one in turn until I found a suitable one, it took ages! I hope it helps to sell some books.
