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.

WilsonGill commented on DISGUISED - Red Flags

I had a problem at the beginning of the chapter. I wasn't sure whose records she was investigating - Cooper or Falwell? 
      Other than that, a seamless chapter filled with interesting background information. Voted.

The best laid plans... I particularly enjoyed the detail as she attempted to don the disguise of a Machat. 
      All the emphasis was on meeting Naatos. I suspected this was not going to happen but it still made for an exciting read.
      I wonder if the disguise is going to fool WroOth? Voted.
