Nearly there. Can you help make this happen?

Dear Subscribers.  The book is now 87% funded.  Please can you help me by sharing this little piece far and wide on socal media.  Thank you. Paul


This was me on the main stage of  Bristol Old Vic in Feb 2016 singing in public for the first time in 30 years.   

Two years and many gigs later and I know more about singing, stories, the voice, music and stage fright than I thought was possible.  But what I understand more than anything is how wonderful people can be when you ask for help, because although it was just me and a guitar, the journey happened because of the generosity of everyone who had faith, opened their homes, booked gigs, let me play in their theatres and helped me pursue my dream every step of the way.  In the long shadows cast by Brexit and Trump I discovered people are amazing and that gives me hope. 

On The Road Not Taken is my book about what happened when, once in my lifetime, I ran away from sensible advice. The book is 87% funded and I need help to cross the finish line.  Would you like to buy a copy in advance?  If you do your name appears in the book as a supporter for all time. The sign up is simple and takes 5 minutes. 


Thank you

Paul Dodgson


You start dying slowly

If you do not change your life when you are not satisfied with your job, or with your love,

If you do not risk what is safe for the uncertain,

If you do not go after a dream,

If you do not allow yourself,

At least once in your lifetime,

To run away from sensible advice.
