Ben & Capt Mainwaring

Ben & Capt. Mainwaring (Dad’s Army)

In 2007, I retired from a hectic career as an electronics engineer having travelled the world and put on a lot of weight.  Casting around for something to keep me busy, I started walking long-distance trails with my wife Carol, and writing books.   The boot miles are now well over 2,500 and the published books number twelve with more in the offing.

I also started writing essays, sending them unsolicited to family and friends who sometimes responded and sometimes ignored me.  I wrote about anything and everything as evidenced by the contents of my 2014 book, Fingers to the Keyboard: 2000 – 2014 followed in 2016 by Fingers to the Keyboard: 2015 – 2016.  Other  books cover my thoughts on religion; my life as a world-travelling professional electronics engineer and teacher; a novel about a sociology student and a beekeeper (not suitable for children); a children’s book (very suitable for children, and adults!); a book on quirky words in the English language; and tales from the long-distance trails we’ve walked.  You’ll find more detail here, plus the books are available as e-books on www.smashwords.com and in Amazon’s Kindle Store.
