My name is Harold Wilson. No I am not related! Born in England, I emigrated to Canada when I was twenty-two to take up a teaching position. During my teaching career  I developed a highly successful approach to the teaching of chemistry (P.S.Chem.), published articles in various journals, and co-authored a book - The Role of Solvents in Chemical Reactions ( Not exactly a best seller). Tired of always writing in scientific style (impersonal) I joined a writing group.   Initially I attempted a series of memoirs meant for family consumption(Oh Henry!). Encouraged by the response of group members,I self-published these short stories .I have since written five novels, without ever attempting to publish. 
      1. The Drustone - A humorous  "Historical Fiction" unlike any other.
      2. End of the Line- The tragic story of an English family who emigrated to Canada in the 1920s
      3. Forever Young - A political satire
      4. Bobby McGee - A tale featuring a village policeman in N.W. England. 
      5. Inheritance - a  romance set in England during the swinging sixties.

These will all be eventually posted on Wattpad.

Hard to match your beautiful description of the wedding night. Voted
When I read "... he could continue the rest of his 'natural' life..." I thought he realized that the curse was about to be lifted. The knife brought me back to earth with a thump.
Hard to resist reading on.
Because of this engaging story I will be watching "Death at Pemberley" on PBS this Sunday.
It seems that "Forever Young" is picking up a bit of steam. The number of reads is increasing each week and it has ranked as high as 67 in the Fantasy sweep stakes. 
Thanks to all.  The Expedition starts this Friday.
