Realities

What? Again?

My personality test described me as a spontaneous idealist and I have to agree. I am at my best and liveliest when playing with new, creative ideas. I’m a great believer in freedom to express without restraints and being passionate about your work. If what you do doesn’t bring you joy then you shouldn’t be doing it; you’ll never do it well.

Writing

I have worked for many media publications and companies writing on subjects such as interior design, club and restaurant reviews, interviews and all manner of fanciful malarkey.

My most exciting experience was when the Daily Express Newspaper asked me to drive like the clappers to a hotel and interview the Formula One BBC commentator and former racing driver, David Coulthard. I drove so fast that I was there before he was. In my opinion that should have earned me a Ferrari though, to be honest, I’m more partial to an Aston Martin.

I have written several books, a number of songs, some humorous verse and, words of wisdom.  My style takes me along different writing avenues and personas dependant upon the subject, personality or platform.  The Jules Smith brand encompasses Satirical Snapshots of life via ‘Whimsy On A Wednesday’, Art Philosophy, and Head Of The Fable. 

I also write for companies:  product description, content for websites, bio’s, press releases, blogs, and social media.

My personal style is of a whimsical nature. I like to observe people, life and situations and find the humour within; often in a black comedy way. I enjoy reaching into the deeper emotions of readers and making them feel. I write in a storytelling fashion that enables me to engage with the reader and paint a visual picture that they can find some way to relate to.

Likes

Hammocks on beaches with a margarita in each hand, junkets, travel, reading, exploring, bacon, freedom, red lippy, cowboy boots, chess, backgammon, word games and psychology for sport.

Dislikes

Hierarchy, control, English weather, black pudding, long queue’s, strawberries, maths, internet failure, and spiders.

Synopsis

A free-spirited, quirky soul with a passion for the fanciful, that won’t go out in the rain unless there’s a tarantula in the living room or a margarita at the other end.
