So…  I’m Stephen Mullaney-Westwood then  (and not pretending to be more important by writing in the third person!)  …perhaps you’ve heard of me… but you probably haven’t.

I’m a loner…  always have been… and I am a little old fashioned in some ways.  The authors I look up to have been dead many years, as has the kind of romantic fame that they garnered from their craft.  I find that most social media and self promotion just doesn’t ‘sit right’ with me.  At worst I see it as an inane exhibition of hubris.  Hobnobbing, guest blogging or simply chatting on other’s pages would feel disingenuous and I’m just not hungry enough to be chasing literary awards or publishing contracts.  So where does that leave me?   My own worst enemy I guess… doomed to obscurity.

But still… you are here… you have found me, regardless, so perhaps there is a deeper reason?  Yes, I suppose it may be old fashioned, but I think fate is much more magical than a well orchestrated publicity campaign.
