Copyright Issues Statement

Due to the fact that I have had some associations with some dubious characters in the past, I need to make the following statement:

I retain the copyright to everything I have ever written, whether it was written under my legal name or a pseudonym. No copyright of mine has been legally transferred to anyone, with the exception of some educational material transferred to a Montessori school for their distribution that was paid for in full. For everything else I have ever written, I retain the right to say that any distribution can only be made if my permission is granted in written form. I hereby withdraw any previous permission to distribute my material in any form, unless you have my permission in writing: and I want to see a copy of any supposed agreement.

For more information please see:


Any or all of the copyright owner's exclusive rights or any subdivision of those rights may be transferred, but the transfer of exclusive rights is not valid unless that transfer is in writing and signed by the owner of the rights conveyed or such owner's duly authorized agent.


Copyright protection subsists from the time the work is created in fixed form. The copyright in the work of authorship immediately becomes the property of the author who created the work. Only the author or those deriving their rights through the author can rightfully claim copyright.

If you think you have acquired the copyright to any of my works, which I forthright deny (with the above mentioned exclusion), then please contact me at:
