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

However, it IS a peculiarly insinuating sequence that has lurked in sinuous spirals since Satan first rose in the Garden of Eden "involv'd in rising mist" and replicated it in the coils of a serpent. A spiral staircase might indeed, therefore, be containing it within the human built environment.

“Loneliness and loss and the reparative powers of love”

Better Strangers (Written In Water Book 2) Better Strangers by Lesley Hayes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I gave volume 1 in this series five stars, and have no hesitation in granting volume two the same s Read more of this blog post »
