About

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.

I felt all the frustration of that security check in. Sounds like making the model will be quite a challenge - the ultimate lego test. 
I liked the brief synopsis of the plot . It really helps when reading the story in a serialized fashion.
An interesting chapter. Voted.
p.1. four's?
p.2. it was this that made me stay.

What a start - the assassination of the President obviously condoned by the vice-president.  
Is your story intended as a thriller? If so, you might like to take a look at Elmore Leonard's  "Rules". 
This" grasshopper' must be quite a character to be able to accept such weighty responsibilities. i will be reading on to see how he copes.
