About This Author

At various times in my career I authored and produced training material and documentation on a number of technical subjects, including Land Surveying, Property Law, Cartography, Computer Programming and Military Signals. Outside of work I also wrote and illustrated magazine articles on the repair and maintenance of the S1 Land Rover and for several years wrote a blog on the restoration of an old farmhouse below the Picos de Europa and within the shadows of Spanish bureaucracy. Somewhere along the way I have also found time to write a number of fictional novels and short stories. Published so far are three novels of historical fiction, each one set against the background of rioting during the early part of the industrial revolution:- Damned Charity The Reformation Pump Framesmith In contrast, to these is The Bench. A collection of eight short stories, all sharing a fantasy theme . Also published, in 2021, Bust, an account of our first family camping trip to France in 1979 when whatever could go wrong did. In fact it was such a fiasco we even made another trip a year later, only to discover that history does repeat itself.
