I was a Ministerial Advisor on Quality Policy during the early 1990s, Head of International Relations at the Welsh Office in the mid 90s, and Principal Private Secretary to the Presiding Officer 1999 - 2004. Disillusioned with the world of politics and government I left the Civil Service in 2005 and am now an author and artist.
My first novel, The Night Traveller, by MJ Maguire, was published June 2010, and I another is in the pipeline. I am also currently arranging an exhibition of my visual art works which I will announce in the near future.
I am interested in MG sports cars (I own several) and Opera. I had my voice trained at the Marchesi Singing Academy in my teens although I now sing in the shower or when no-one is listening - or I think they aren't. If you've read The Night Traveller you'll know that that amounts to much the same thing.
