I am 65, married with three children and one grandchild. My passions in life in order of importance are my family, my studying, my writing and my paintings. I would say that my main gift is imagination, which is why I would describe myself more of a story teller than a writer. I have written over twenty full length novels and will be publishing them on Smashwords; hopefully at least one a month. So far I have only published one novel; Die Lady Di. I am also an artist. I paint landscapes in oil. I have designed and painted all my book covers. I also have a biology degree.
You are probably thinking why should I read the novels written by Raymond Warrillow? I will try and help. If you enjoyed reading Captain Corelli’s Mandolin and Booker Prize winners you will probably not enjoy reading my novels. I find it difficult to read such novels. To use a singing analogy I would describe such novels as operatic. I write for people who enjoy listening to singing, but not to opera. My novels usually have a viewpoint from a man and a woman, although some have a viewpoint from just one person. My novels are easy to read; have strong plots and sub-plots; have believable characters and a satisfactory ending. The novels portray life as it really is, with all its warts. They contain love, hate, romance, sex, revenge, rape, murder etc. You will find your emotions stretched in every direction. All my novels can be enjoyed by men and women, although some might be enjoyed more by women, such as The Stepping Out Of Lily, While and some will be enjoyed more by men such as Die Lady Di. I wish you happy reading.
One of the subjects I have studied is nutrition and weight reduction dieting. I have published a diet book on Amazon.co.uk; The Body Controlled Diet (the BC diet) I have spent 30 years studying weight reduction dieting and my advice for anyone thinking about losing weight is to read the BC diet book first. The BC diet is the only way to lose weight and stay slim without resorting to surgery or drugs. You can lose weight with any diet, but the weight nearly always returns because we are all programmed with the starvation response. The BC diet is the only way to lose weight that does not activate the starvation response. If you do intend to read the BC diet book prepare to be surprised and amazed.
