About This Author

John Edwards was born in Ellesmere Port on the 7th of February 1941, the third of three brothers. His primary education was at Cambridge Road Junior School, where his love of English Language and Poetry enabled him to pass a scholarship examination for Wirral Grammar School in Bebington. He was married to Kath and had three children and five grandchildren. All were often held in raptures with accounts of his childhood adventures. His love for poetry and literature was always his passion, even overtaking his love for cricket. John's spiritual food was a warm word, a caring look and a loving hug. His warmest memories all involved the people he loved. Sadly John passed away on the 3rd of December 2020 before he saw his book published. His friends in the Borderliners writing group have completed the task so that his work may not be forgotten.
