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. Myrite - 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 have never been to Turkey so I enjoyed your descriptions, in particular the drive into the countryside. Very effective use of the newscast to remind the reader of two earlier events. The background info such as the letter of condolence and his interactions with fellow travelers make your M/C likeable. I found the conversation with the Turkish lawyer engrossing and realized the difficulty involved in "proving a negative". As usual the chapter was laced with social commentary -a facet of your writing that I enjoy so much. Voted

No apology needed. I like longer chapters especially ones as "meaty" as this one. You have created an intriguing situation bringing together Greg and Walt. Voted The cringing behaviour of Mitt in his confrontation with the Pole was exactly what I expected from his past history. I also think Mitt is going to regret the sacking of Walt. The writing was polished and the pacing excellent. One small point. p.1.It might be better if in the sentence beginning "Fawley forced a laugh... " you somehow avoided repeating 'when'.

I had just finished reading a chapter of wizzobravo's "Cutthroats of the Coast" before this one so I had been exposed to a lot of "digestive problems" already. Despite being inundated with the same type of humour I enjoyed your chapter and voted for it. I was particularly intrigued by Vettius' obvious concern for Cato. Who strung him up in the latrine? Just for fun I googled "Booblius". You should try it. p.2. You're a soldier not a solder.
