About William Hebden

For the record, I live in the North of England, and have spent most of my life distracted from writing by the need to hold down a responsible job and to earn a crust. Now I have a little more time on my hands.
I have always had an affinity for writers who prefer to remain relatively unknown until their work proves itself by its own merit. I particularly admire Alfred Wainwright who, legend would have it, often sat on the top of Lakeland fells discussing himself with people who had no idea who he was.
At 66, I am not attracted by fame, though a little fortune would not go amiss. So I hope you'll forgive me if I remain in the background and let The Camthorpe Miracle out into the world on its own. You never know; some folk might find enough amusement and entertainment in its pages to arouse a bit of curiosity about its author.

Review by: Valerie Winder on Sep. 05, 2012 : (no rating)
This book is a real page turner and full of twists and turns.The story is very original and quirky but draws you in.I know nothing about football,but this aspect is only a part of it,and it deals with wider universal ideas and themes which are very relevant today.I loved the Yorkshire dialogue and humour and found the characters very srongly drawn and believable.The book is beautifully written and I would recommend it to anyone as a good read.

Not a real football fan, but there is much more to this book than merely football, it is thorough good read, with lots of Yorkshire humour, and I thoroughly recommend this book.

Fantastic book, read cover to cover in one night. If you're a fan of football, underdogs and a bit of comedy, you're in for a treat. Enjoy!
