A new novel – set in 1970

Life in 1970 was completely different. So many things that we now take for granted were not there. No mobile phones. No interent. No DVDs. No streaming of anything. And nearly everyone smoked.

It is against this background that A Walk on the Wilder Side is set. A thriller, wrapped in a mystery with the central character, Keith Wilder, the news editor of a newsagency in St Helens, Lancashire.

The story is also partly auto-biographical in that many of the people and events were real. So, why don’t you take a step on the Wider Side and go to Amazon where you will find it in paperback or as a eBook.

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.
