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 (no personal pronouns) 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 six novels, without ever attempting to publish. 1. The Drustone - A children's story set in N.W.England. 2. End of the Line- The tragic story of an English family who emigrated to Canada in the 1920s 3. Alphega - A political satire 4. A Tanner Each Way 5. The Chiron Conspiracy. Both #4 and #5 feature an inept village bobby in Northern England. 6. Inheritance - a teenage romance set in England during the swinging sixties. The completed version of "Inheritance" is now available on WP. The weekly serialization of "End of the Line" has just begun.
