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 six 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. A Tanner Each Way 5. The Chiron Conspiracy. 6. Inheritance - a teenage romance set in England during the swinging sixties. The completed version of "Inheritance" is now available on WP but will soon be removed for revision. The serialization of "End of the Line" is almost complete. 4 and 5, stories featuring an inept village policeman, have been accepted for publication.
