My name is Islwyn, but you can call me Iss, or Izzy - well you can call me anything you like, but please don't call me too early in the morning.
I was born in a castle on the banks of the river Teifi. When I took my first breath, the butler called down the stairs to the awaiting servants that it was a boy and the household gave a cheer - if anyone tells you different don't believe them!
All right, I might have laid it on a bit thick its not entirely true - the family were living in a castle at the time I made my presence felt on the planet. Albro Castle was a converted workhouse that had seen better days - but the rats thought it was just perfect.
One rat took a liking to me and tried to eat me alive - I've still got the scars on my leg.
My luck changed when I was four and we moved to what seemed to be paradise. The estate was full of young families and we had acres of marsh, and the river Teifi on our doorstep - our wonderland.
I left school at the age of 15 and spent some time living and working on various farms before moving to Reading and London during my teenage years. Before that time I had never lived or worked more than 3 miles away from the river Teifi, The inspiration for my second book, Telynog's Tail. Missing the river and country life - I chose to return home from Reading. I've been playing happily family every since, I'm now a father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
My main hobby is writing, otherwise I'm sitting in my garden drinking tea or on the river in my boat.
So far I have completed five novels and two books of short stories, which I'm hoping will be available to you soon. I have published one paperback book, The Lost Birds. I've sold loads of copies and luckily no one has trashed it so far - fingers crossed. I've started a further seven novels, which I hope to finish if I live long enough!
