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.

The very brief conclusion to "Forever Young" is now available. I hope it gives you food for thought. Thanks for all your support.
WilsonGill commented on The Feisty Orphan - Chapter 2

You have me loathing Mrs. Goode and Penelope. 
You made this  very clear with the statement  "Penelope was a loathsome being." Watch out - this is 'telling'.  " What does that creature want?"  is a far more effective way of conveying the same information.
I have a feeling that Arthur will be more likeable.

You have a definite talent for action scenes. I particularly enjoyed the rising tension as he attempted to escape through the portal.

Try to be careful about the typos such as - The boy on the cross had lost weight since he lost saw him. I spotted several of these but they didn't detract from the story. I'm sure you will catch them when editing.

Maybe  he reached the P.M. too easily. Just a thought.
Voted.
Don't forget that the concluding chapter of "Forever Young" will be uploaded tomorrow. I hope you like the ending.
