Geoff Lawson


Geoff Lawson was destined to lead a varied life, leaving school at fifteen to work as a carpenter, coachbuilder, kitchen installer, etc,.. and became a general all round handy guy. At home, his hobbies taught him other skills - vintage car restoring, muzzle-loading shooting and a fascination for the historical. Along the way he acquired the good wife, lovely daughters (grandchildren too) as well as the 101 things that mark a life well lived. His first foray into professional writing began with the restoration of an iconic artillery gun and resulted in the history book "Our Gun" which has since been followed by the historical novel "Forgiven". Now retired and still with Wendy (the same good wife) he is still committed to historical projects around the 'River City', (Whanganui New Zealand).

South Africa, 1899 : I'm in trouble. Lots of trouble, I am concussed, wounded, and have a big bandage around my head. I'm also surrounded by scruffy, scowling, heavily armed men; I am a prisoner. I have felt low before, but never as low as this. Thank God Rachel can't see me. She is half way around the world and I'm beginning to despair that I will ever be able to make my way back to her.
