S R Clarke (RIBD) Architect
My name is Steve Clarke, I was born in 1969, I’m a Manchester United fan and enjoy listening to 80′s pop music, but I like to think of myself as being a fit and with-it forty something; keeping up with current trends in both music and fashion. I’ve been married for ten years to Sarah, we have two wonderful children Thomas and Lucy and a menagerie of pets.
Shirley, my meticulously personal assistant, is my rock against telephone time-wasters and has been invaluable since setting up my Architectural business eight years ago.
I’m a workaholic, or so I’m frequently told and according to close family and friends I live the American dream, but my reality is so very different. I feel trapped, most of the time, on life’s roller coaster ride of appointments and disappointments, bewildered by my mid-life crisis of grey, receding hair – which I’m told is testament to my forty-four shades of wisdom. I’m suffering from the onset of middle aged spread – too many puddings and chocolate bars – a good substitute for sex!
Sarah argues I’ve a diminishing libido and live in this fantasy world, but isn’t that normal at my time of life? And there’s no harm done?
Like a window cleaner, I see through my clients shiny facade; witnessing their lives warts and all. And it would be selfish not to share.
Faithful is the first of many adventures and the unravelling of my ‘mid-life crisis.’
Fidelity, the second in the series and available soon, continues a self discovery through the lives of others; stripping back another painful layer, like peeling an onion, and like my shrink you’ll be on hand every step of the way.
I sincerely hope you enjoy the journey, told in my own unique way.
