About Tony Levy

I am a 68 year-old cancer survivor from Tottenham. A family man and former prison officer. After spending 25 years in the UK’s prison service, and having become increasingly disillusioned with stifling modern prison service politics and practices, in 2008 I took my pension pot and ran, moving to Spain to spend my early retirement in the sun. This autobiography A Turnkey or Not? is about my prison service life is my first book.
My wife and I, however, temporarily moved back to the UK due to the economic climate, at the time. And I returned to working life.
I have now completed my second book all about working at a major UK airport as a security officer, based on true facts it is an observational look at how staff, passengers and management treat being subject to modern airport security.
It is about my last working career after having to go back to the UK during the recession I obtained work as a security officer at Heathrow Airport Terminal 5.
This book El Dorado? No! Heathrow Airport is a continuation where my first book finished and revels the truth about how we all behave when faced with airport security the rudeness and the language directed at security staff by passengers and celebrities will amaze you and bemuse you.
Look out for 'El Dorado? No! Heathrow Airport' It is now available now. Read the book and recognise yourself in the book.
These two book have actually led to a third book making them into a trilogy of my quest to find my personal El Dorado.
The third book will be about real people too and my experience of living on an ex pat community in Spain. This too will be a great read but will mean I will have to move for my own safety after revealing the behaviour of my fellow Brits abroad.
But before this book can be completed I have written a prequel all about when I was a driving instructor in Central London back in the early 1980's Which will be published soon
I am now also working on a children's book all about four stray kittens that arrived on our doorstep after some tremendous storms. Homeless, hungry and in need of help these cats have changed our lives and I felt compelled to write their story
I hope you read and enjoy all my books
Thank you all
