  1. At present I am taking time off from writing my novels and so have had time to read three quite different but enjoyable books. "Rugby Football: A United Game". This is a novel based on what might have happened if instead of breaking away, the northern clubs had been in the majority in 1895 and taken control of our sport. Written by Peter Lush (London League Publications)" "A Very Miner MP". the biography of former Labour MP Geoff Lofthouse Yorkshire Arts Circus 1985 "The Little Book of Puns" written by Alison Westwood. Ingenious wordplay and groan inducing quips a la Groucho Marx and "What's Posterity Ever Done For Me" and Billy Connolly's "Why should I learn algebra I'm never likely to go there". No one appears to have read any of my six novels yet. The latest is called "Three Good Years" and has a background of Work, Family Life, Saving the NHS and Rugby League". (London League Publications)
  2. I have already sent details of my latest novel "Three Good Years" up to the Newcastle club. I also asked if anyone knew whether Denis Betts was a big reader because the title of its first chapter would certainly have made him smile. It is called "The Jehovah's Widnes".
  3. Over the years I have done book signings at nine WH Smith stores in Lancashire and eight in West and South Yorkshire and met and talked to a lot of very interesting people. You were probably one of them.
  4. I have now written six novels all based loosely on my own life and times and inspired by two things: firstly the old saying about work that "They could write a book about this place. It would be a best seller" and secondly my love and knowledge of rugby league, its history and most of the people who are involved in it. They are titled One Winter, One Spring, One Summer, One Autumn, Two Seasons and Three Good Years. Many rugby league fans and other good folk often tell me that they would love to write a novel based on their own life but did not know how they could do it. For them I have recently written three A4 pages of useful information and advice on how to. If you would like me to send them to you just E Mail me at wgeofflee@gmail.com and you will have them before the sun rises in the morning!
  5. In February 2018 I put a message here titled "How to write a novel" and over 3,500 people have seen it. At the time I had written five novels all with a strong rugby league background. Since then I have had another novel published. It is titled "Three Good Years" and is set against a background of Work, Family Life, Saving the NHS and Rugby League during the 2006, 7 and 8 seasons. I have also written three pages of advice on how any typical rugby league fan could write a novel based on his or her own life. If you want me to send you these sheets, just E Mail me at wgeofflee@gmail.com and you can have them before the sun rises in the morning!
  6. If you are now self isolating or know someone like an older relative or neighbour who is and looking for an interesting way to spend the time, can I suggest this. Try writing a novel based loosely on your own life and times. This is something that I started doing in 1988 and since then I have written six novels, all set against a strong rugby league background. Over the years I have talked to many people about what I have done and the usual response has usually been along the lines that they would love to write about their life but they would not even know how to start it. For people like this I have now written a short guideline. If this interests you or any one you know E mail me at wgeofflee@gmail.com and I'll send it to you.

It is in just 2 pages. If you would like me to send it to you E Mail me at wgeofflee@gmail.com
