George F Mason


I worked in manufacturing for over 30 years and climbed the promotion ladder to become the production manager of a facility that made electricity meters. Not an exciting product, but the buzz that came from achieving production targets and the banter with my friends was great.

However, I took up a redundancy option in 2003 and set myself up as a freelance writer. I have been supplying articles and short stories to magazines etc. At the moment I am concentrating on writing books for self-publication. I have two books currenly available in print form. More details about me my books and writing services can be found on my website.
