My name is Paul Dodgson. When I was a teenager all I wanted to do was to go out on the road with a guitar and a headful of songs.
But that was too scary so I got a proper job instead.
Thirty years later, I headed out through the door and did it for real.
I'm playing gigs, there's a spoken word and music show and last year it became a play on BBC Radio 4.
Now I am writing a book about the adventure for the crowdfunding publisher, Unbound. It is a love story about the transformational power of music, about the past and the present and what happens when we live our dreams.
