About The Author

I’ve been retired for several years now and after working in our garden or returning from a long walk, or perhaps some times both, I take time to write. I’ve never been a person that gained any satisfaction from reading books. Being dyslexic I never seemed to be able to master the art of spelling or writing words and needless to say never being able to link them into sentences. With this new found time on my hands and a computer with spell check I shrived to teach myself those skills. I find creating a story engages the mind and simulates it to become much more active than it would normally have to be. To me a story is like a jigsaw puzzle where you must make all the peaces fit perfectly to create an intriguing tale. When I start a story the characters seems to take control of their own destiny and I follow along for the ride. This is the second story I’ve written and I never intended the characters to take the course they seemed to have chosen but that’s half the fun I get from writing. Every page can be as much a surprise to me as the reader. So I hope you fined the same enjoyment in reading this figment of my imagination as I did in writing it. I am, Anthony John Hoare. Retired construction worker.
