    How to write a novel

    I am the author of the novels One Winter, One Spring, One Summer, One Autumn, Two Seasons and Three Good Years all of which are written against a strong rugby league background. This coming Saturday (January 19th) from 2 p.m, I will be in the Roots and Shoots Health Food Shop in Cavendish Street explaining how to write a novel based on your own life. This coincides with the recent publication of my latest novel which is set during the 2006, 07 and 08 seasons and with a background of work, family life, saving the NHS and Rugby League.

  3. My latest novel "Three Good Years" has recently been published. It is set during the 2006, 07 and 08 seasons with a background of work, family life, saving the NHS and Rugby League.

Among the 25 chapter titles are The Jehovah's Widnes, I follow Marlborough League, Telling Stevo about Uno's Dabs, The Welsh chamber maid, "The Dream", New Years Day 2007, Them bloody stupid pliers, "I hope that Guy Fawkes is standing", "Your mother grew up in Tiger Bay", The lady from Sint-Jans-Molenbeek, He's in St Helens Hospital and The CID are now involved. Available from the publisher London League Publications at www.llpshop.co.uk ( Click on books and then click on fiction} or any good book shop.

    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.
