  1. Waterstones on Saturday

    Anyone looking for a novel that is set against a Rugby League background that also covers work, family life, old friends and Yorkshire/Lancashire industrial humour, meet me in Waterstones this coming Saturday (April 21st) from 11 onwards. I will be in there signing copies of my fifth novel which is called "Two Seasons" and is set during 2002 and 2003. Among the chapter titles are included: An evening in Bailiff Bridge, A day on the M62, A day out in Wigan, The good Yorkshireman, The sermon on Mount Pleasant, Listening to Eddie and Stevo, A Tale from Knowsley Road, Hazel says "No" to Bush and Blair, "Will you be our Auntie Thelma", A Swedish affair, E Mails from Amsterdam, The spoilt papers might win it, and Martindale's Chip Shop!
  2. I am the author of five novels (One Winter, One Spring, One Summer, One Autumn and Two Seasons). They are all inspired by the old saying about work that "They could write a book about this place. It would be a best seller" and cover such everyday things like romance, family life and family tree, work, old friends, rock 'n' roll and Rugby League and are written against a strong Lancashire Yorkshire humorous background On Wednesday morning (February 28th) from 10 onwards I have been invited to speak at the Huddersfield central library monthly coffee morning event about my novels and at the same time advise members of my audience how they too can write a novel based around their own life and times. However if you are unable to attend please tell your parents or grandparents about this event because if they do decide to come along for the first time, they might even meet some old friends there. And if not, the coffee at this coffee morning and the biscuits are free!

  5. How to write a novel

    I am the author of five novels: (One Winter, One Spring, One Summer. One Autumn and Two Seasons). They cover the years between 1962 and 2003 and are inspired by the old saying about work that "They could write a book about this place. It would be a best seller". They have a humourous Lancashire/Yorkshire background, one that includes work, romance, family life and the family tree, old friends, and rugby league. Much of that is based on my own life and times which includes being born in 1939 and growing up in St Helens, living in Halifax while working at Crosrol, as an electrical draughtsman, first at Brunswick Mill and then in Pellon Lane and being a regular attender at Thrum Hall for around seven seasons. On Thursday 15th February from 6.30, I will be in the new Halifax Central Library talking about how to write a novel based broadly on your own life and times. They say that there is a novel in everybody. Let me give you some ideas about how to start writing yours.
