After Wilder…

The stories continue

My 1970 crime novel A Walk on the Wilder Side will shortly be finished and I will begin the process of submitting it to agents, always reserving the right to publish it on Amazon if I don’t find the right home for it.

As many of you will know I have been serialising it on this website and I have been surprised by the people who have enjoyed it, most of whom will not even have been born in 1970. Chapter 27 was added on Friday and I have just completed chapter 60, the most complex of chapters where all is revealed.

The book ends leaving the possibility of the story continuing in a second Wilder book with Keith and Any beginning their life together. I am currently thinking about that. I would be interested if anyone has any views about that.

The other possibility is a Sci-fi story about a world ruled entirely by women where a new ice age caused by global warming is threatening the human race. You may think that is pure fantasy but according to scientists at Cardiff University, it is very much a distinct possibility caused by the melting of Antarctic icebergs could set off a chain reaction that plunges Earth into a new ice age, it was reported in the London Daily Mail recently. And as for women ruling the world, why not? They would probably make a better job of it than us!

I have various other ideas too, including a third Naomi story. I shall mull it all over helped by pints of Guinness!

I am a cereer journalist having worked for the London Dail Mail, Reuters and latterly the Liverpool Daily Post on Merseyside as well as the journalists’ leader in the region. I have experience as a crime reporter, feature writer, business editor and latterly, a senior sub-editor. My qualifications include a BA (Hons) English, from the University of Liverpool; a BA (Hons) Fine Art and an MA in Creative Practice both from Liverpool Hope University. I now divide my time between art and writing. I will shortly be publishing my first full-length novel, The Poseidon Files and as a taster I have written a short story which features the same central female character in which she talks about her world and her life. It is, however, essentially a ghost story.
