Steam and the ‘Sixties

I am in the process of designing pages for a new book focusing on the 1960s and particularly on the demise of steam on Britain’s railway system. I both loved and hated that decade in equal measure; I loved it because of the colour and the music and I hated it because of the vandalism and senseless demolition of anything that was old, only to be replaced by concrete monstrosities.

Anyway, here is a sample page from the book. Enjoy!

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.
