Gary William Murning

Goodreads Author

in Guisborough, The United Kingdom

Member Since
July 2009

Gary is a novelist living in the northeast of England. His work, largely literary fiction, focuses on themes that touch us all — love, death, loss and aspiration — but always with an eye to finding an unusual angle or viewpoint. Quirky and highly readable, his writing aims to entertain first and foremost. If he can also offer a previously unfamiliar perspective or insight, all the better.

His first novel, If I Never, is published by Legend Press and is now available from all good bookstores, online and High Street.

Why Donald Trump Should Not Be Denied Entry to the UK.

I’m sure we are all more than familiar by now with the online petition, signed by somewhere in the region of 570,000 people, calling for Donald Trump to be denied access to the UK—a direct response to his proposal that a blanket ban on all Muslims entering the US should be introduced.

While I have absolutely no sympathy for Mr Trump’s intellectually deficient rabble rousing, and, in fact, consider

“Out of the window , I could see a tree in the distance -little more than a sapling, really, stunted and fragile, it's slender, brittle branches burdened by a precarious layer of snow. It was not healthy; I only had to look at it to understand that.”
Gary William Murning, Children of the Resolution
