Some don't, some do.
- Paul Kane

Unlike life, you've got more or less complete control

and I never thought I'd be doing the things I'm doing today.
- Paul Kane

I've had a lot of very positive feedback about those stories,

I'm fortunate in that I'm a lecturer too and this gets
me out and about and away from the computer.
