In 2004 John Goodwin retired from his directorship of a Construction Industry PLC based in London. His aim: to pursue the good life in sunny Cyprus and indulge his passion for writing. Along with successful publication of many short stories, poems and essays in local English language periodicals and a regular column for a magazine in Dubai he has written three novels to date. A fourth is in development. An early version of his first ‘The Last Olympiad’ was long listed in the UK Authors Opening Pages competition and his Poem ‘Monochrome Monday’ was runner up in an international poetry competition.
John is currently developing Anixe Publishing Ltd to accommodate his own writing ambitions and to help other writers achieve the recognition they deserve. To date Anixe have published seven books:

(A Novel by Beryl Lowe), Rich Inspirations (A collection of Poems and Short stories by Richard Palmer) and of course his own: 20/20 Visions as an EBook only), Slow Hand and The Last Olympiad (both also available as paperbacks). Also, a nonfiction title (Advanced Rider Training a training manual by Steve Tucker & David Rainford).
