What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Squirrels of Destiny is my fifth project since leaving Hull Uni in 2007. The first four paperbacks have been published by chipmunkapublishing, and currently one of which is being redeveloped as a 2nd edition. Squirrels of Destiny is going through AuthorHouse UK and they require £1,500 production costs. The writing stems from long term mental health issues which i have been living with since 1998 aged 20. At the time and for many years after - i was incorrectly diagnosed with schizophrenia, and subsequent difficulties ensued both living independently in the community and whilst sectioned three times in psychiatry. Actually today it is increasingly apparent that (with varying independent supporters) in fact the condition is more like depression, anxiety and am on the autistic spectrum as presenting with asperger characteristics. Have been long-term stable for approx. 12 years at this point.

Squirrels of Destiny is a work of fiction and fact combined - varying across the period 2010-2020 (so contemporary) with seven fictional characters men and women. Also, importantly chapter four interviews three reality people who excel in their lives and careers, psychologically, physically, emotionally, and are true inspirations to all who care to investigate.

The work as a whole covers pyschology, relationships, philosophy, economics, theology, business enterprise, comments on modern Olympic sport, musical culture, art, food and drink, and utilises the seven fictional characters alongside reality to create a diverse and interesting storyline. There are also essays on BREXIT, and the local economy.

Personally i was married for 8 years and we made family. However, these days we are Amicably separated and we are like great friends now we live apart. The kids are all at local schools, and i love them to number one priority!!!

Musically i am an amateur musician and create/compose as well as play occasionally. This is another story though?????

Please help Us (Plural - 'Squirrels' is a Team Effort!!!!) to produce this book - any generous contribution extremely grateful for!

To Produce 'Squirrels of Destiny' would be to produce a New work of Literary Faction (fiction/fact) and would be something that people could enjoy anywhere around the world!? :-) Please give generously? X
