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.

As Jimbobi  mentioned in an earlier comment, it seems that they have discovered a cell phone (LOL). 
I found the conversation with Lucy very helpful, reminding me of the role of each character. I'm sure Lucy is going to be an invaluable ally.
I wasn't sure where 'here' might be (bottom of p.2.)
I'm afraid that all writing related activities will be coming to a halt over the holidays. The grandchildren are coming to stay!  Normal service will be resumed in the New Year. In the mean time I plan to upload two new chapters of  "Forever Young" in the next couple of days.  I promise these will give you something more than wine to mull over.  On Monday I will upload the final chapter of "Oh Henry!"
Best wishes to all.
