  2. If you perchance to meet him … Geoff or Geoffles as some affectionately call him you will feel warm and fuzzy as if you have known him a lifetime; like a favourite sweater. He has a level of humour unlike any other person I have met. He is not brash, or arrogant but can be saucy and he has a twinkle found in very well read fellows from some long forgotten time. A bit of a wag. I have read several of his books and no doubt will read more if only to find who will be writing this one. I have read gentle touching pieces, raucus giggle out loud ones and very well researched straight to the point books and I am always surprised that he can write in so many different voices, and different genres at a drop of a knee. You can see by his answers he is humble and almost refuses to sell himself. So I have. Well done the man. 😎😉
