After over forty years working as an accountant, I took up the pen in 2010. I had spotted an interesting character in the history of one of the towns I had worked in, and upon researching him, found him to be fascinating. So I started writing, and became addicted. The words flowed so fast I was barely able to keep up. 'The Other Robin Hood' is the outcome, although the finished product is very different to the first draft!
What next? Well, I do have the outline for a sequel, but also I am reviewing a tome I wrote almost 20 years ago to see if it warrants 'cleaning up'. I have additionally identified another fascinating Highwayman from history about whom I am constructing a timeline with a view to a fairly lengthy dramatisation of HIS life.
Notorious highwayman George Davenport was much more than just a brigand. A kind and compassionate man, he sought only to live in peace. But circumstances forced George into crime.
It is not the account of a notorious highwayman, but of a courageous and benevolent man who deeply loved his wife and cared for others – to the point of being considered “The Other Robin Hood”.
