In the mid 70s I wrote some stories for children and Penguin published them. At the time my heart was in inner-city education, and I pursued a very time-consuming career in it as the Principal (Headteacher) of a Coeducational High School in Hackney (East London).
After my second retirement, Amy and I lived in Belize for 3 years and were involved with the Orchid Garden Eco-Village Hotel (see www.trybelize.com)...
We came back to the UK at the beginning of 2011, and I embarked on "Myrddin's Heir": a story about children with special powers, born to make this world a better place.
The first 5 books in the series are now available from the Amazon Kindle Store at 99p each (US$ 1.30). I hope you'll want to check out my website - www.myrddinsheir.com
