I have two distinct lives. One in the trenches of low-budget film and television, the other in professional gambling. Because of the feast-or-famine nature of show business I need a reliable income... gambling. So here you will read about both worlds. Enjoy!

Hi Guys
Thanks for the positive comments. I have also enjoyed the James Clavell books and will revisit them as you have Bob.
If you enjoy history, anything by Robert Harris and Ken Follett and for Greek History, Stephen Fry.
