My publications

I have been publishing items since 2002 starting with technical papers on image processing. I have since written articles for local and national magazines, history guides for local town councils, training materials for businesses, and much more. Many of these, the history and Heartstart materials have also resulted in radio interviews with BBC Radio Berkshire, The Breeze, KickFM and Kennet Radio. Below is a list of many of my publications.
