Author Biography

I have been promising to write the book that they say is in all of us. just after Covid arrived, I started with a blank screen, having thought about Captain Tom for the previous few days. My Dad was also a Captain in the RASC and I wanted to mention him in a memory, albeit mostly fictional, so an image was left long after he is forgotten. Once I started, it took over, a life of its own developed and the storyline flowed easily. Many characters and elements are true, as inevitably happens when you travel through life. If you have ever thought of writing a book, just do it, you may think you have only one book in you, you may well be surprised. The hardest part is getting your book read by people but to have it in print makes the journey worthwhile.
