I keep hearing that something historic is supposed to be happening today. Drop me a line if you know what that is please. I could include it in my blog if only I knew. Anyway. So we fought off the Viking hoards and now have to face the Roman legions. This time it is not […]
Who’s there? Val! Val who? Valhalla! Yep, who would have Thort it. Tonight the Vikings. Then if we survive that, bring on the Romans. Against the might of two armies we have but a single Kane to defend ourselves. Oh din of 60,000 aid us in our battle for survival. We want no bad Loki […]
Yes, it is true. Football is coming home! And just like when the original song came out in 1996, it was not the supposed main message that England were going to win a trophy after 30 years of hurt (now 55) but the actual fact that a major football tournament was on British soil for […]
Due to a mystery illness in the camp, England have been allowed to draft in a new player. There has been no official news regarding the illness but unconfirmed rumours suggest that various players are turning invisible. If this turns out to be true then it is believed that this phenomenon started just over two […]
After 18 months of hard living, it was supposed to be the uplifting, shining spectacle to herald the coming out of lockdown – for those of us into football that is – but instead it has been mediocre at best. We have had a week now of Euro 2020 Plus One and I have not […]
Whisper it from the rooftops – the Library is open! I wanted people to be able read what all my books were about, what people have said about them and be able to click to them easily – all in one place, so I have now created The Library. This is a page from the […]
My quest to become a writer has been going on for years but not enough people have read my books so far and this is the reason for this website.
Now, this is my first effort in the area of children’s writing and I didn’t know if they would be any good, so I asked a couple of primary school teachers to read them.
Rewind by David A. Wardle is the story of Jason, who commits suicide on his 40th birthday in the year 2003. However, he doesn’t end up dead but wakes up in his eight-year-old body in the year 1971.
I have finally taken the plunge again and signed a contract with Austin Macauley to publish this book in printed form. Part of this will mean a new e-book version so the existing one on Amazon will have to be unpublished.
Chapter 1 – Off to P S.P.I.D.E.R. Sindy Cobweb lay on the beach in the French Riviera soaking up the sun, trying to get the chill of her first assignment out of her bones. Arctic Roll Call had taken three weeks to complete out of which two and a half weeks had been spent in […]
Those words are the first in my novel ‘Rewind’ which was my last novel, but they are relevant to my new one. Time is ticking down on my submission to three literary agents. As I mentioned before this is the time of demoralisation, with long periods of no news and then the inevitable rejection email. […]
I seem to have been waiting for ages for it to happen and now it has. Obviously I am not talking about the football which was a dismal disappointment. No, I am talking about something much more Pointless. It is a show I watch constantly. Even the repeats which continue like a neverending roundabout.. Even […]
