Neil Carpenter was born in 1950 in Cornwall. After reading English at Cambridge, he had a variety of lecturing jobs in England and abroad before returning to Cornwall to teach English in schools.
Since retiring, he has published his first novel, ‘Killing You Softly’, that reflects a lifetime’s interest in politics. With luck, it also puts into practice what he spent years trying to teach students of English.
Killing You Softly
by Neil Carpenter
Why is a Cornish surgery changing? For two teenagers, Becky Goldsmith and Sarah King, the truth slowly emerges: privatisation. And the first casualty is Becky’s GP father, driven from his job by trumped-up allegations. Who is behind it all? A chain that starts with Sarah’s father and ends miles away in the heart of government. A donation from sales of the book will be made to Keep Our NHS Public.
