I lived in Cornwall, studied Mining Engineering in Cornwall and married a girl from Cornwall, so the county is in my blood. An early interest in writing poetry was put on the back-burner during 17 years working in Africa and then 23 years as a consultant. Having retired from a career of technical writing, I wanted to write fiction and the idea for this book was born from a visit to Porthcurno Telegraph Museum. The beautiful location, the amazing history and the key strategic nature of the Telegraph Station in WWI and WWII were the catalyst for realising a long-held dream of writing my first novel. I now live in North Somerset, on the edge of the Mendip hills with my wife Elaine and three cats.
If you enjoyed my book, Break in Communication, it would be great to hear your thoughts. Please get in contact!
The writing of my second novel The Forbidden Zone is underway as is a WW1 battle history of the 6th Dorsetshire Regiment, probably titled Mud, Blood and Bayonet and progress can be found in the Books section.
