A GREAT BUNCH OF FOLKS
I've found, for the most part, over the last year, that the people in the writing community are a great bunch of folks. Strangers have become fast friends, and readers have become fans. I tend to believe in the power of the pay it forward idea. And as I've sown seed in other writers, I've harvested the benefits from others with same heart and attitude.
ONE OF THEM GREAT FOLKS
Recently, a spry young author, Rags Daniels, suffered a setback...a stroke. His family has been fantastic keeping his friends abreast of his condition and recovery. Then, I received an urgent email...well, me and about 750 other writers from ASMSG. Times being as they are, Rags and his family are suffering some difficulties. And an appeal was sent out for support.
Now, we indie authors aren't known to be the richest of people...but such as we have...we give.
With that in mind, I'd like to introduce you to Rags Daniels and his books, and I hope you'll check him out and help in the support cause for him.
MEET RAGS DANIELS
|Looks like trouble, don't he?|
Rags Daniels was born into a working class family, the second of four children, Salford 1944. Migrated South 1956. Wild and curious, he ran off to London where he met the majority of the characters he writes about. The swinging sixties and early seventies played a major roll in his insatiable thirst for adventure, and against a backdrop of mini-skirts, mod's, rockers and Muhammad Ali, bore witness to an era of crazy fads, culminating in Britain's first ever woman Prime Minister in 1979. And of whom Lord Acton said, 'Absolute power corrupts absolutely, ' and by the end of her era, Thatcher was case in point. And while the Nation paddled through rubbish, bodies unburied, strikes, power cuts, spiralling inflation, limited working weeks, abysmal production, etc, etc, the real money was going into the pockets of fraudulent corporate boards and City Yuppies.(Groomed to Kill), his first book was written against a backdrop of inner city poverty and tells of lad who became a government assassin.
Worked in Norway on timber frame construction where he met John Millen a naval architect who designed Pearl Harbour after the war. Became a 'minder' for his mother-in-law both on and off his motor yacht in which he and his wife toured the world. Returned home, attended Brunel University and passed I.O.C.W.(GB)inc, exams. Worked for Borough Architects Dept. Resigned, got married, built own house while running several companies. Constructed a steel mill in India and a tiger compound in Nepal for the World Wild Life Trust. Widowed. Returned to writing and investigative journalism...It is from his diaries of the 60's and 70's he wrote POLICY, creating a fictional account of one such tale of political intrigue, and one for which he was interviewed by MI6. His latest book Lallapaloosa is ready for publishing and is currently being scripted for the silver screen. He now resides with his son, an A level English teacher, and Roxzan, his 12 year old adopted daughter.
