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.

Quite a change of scenery.  It seems as if they have gone back in time to a feudal situation. Was this typical of Spain in the early nineteen hundreds?
      You like  intriguing endings to the chapters.. It seems as if Bobby is still in the picture.
      Typo: were they our slaves.... I also wondered how palm trees blow sand?
McGee is facing quite a dilemma. I'm not sure how to resolve it.  I hope to continue his story soon. Sorry for the delay.
