M. Stow

Biography

The author Malcolm Stow was born in Essex England, lived in the east end of London, and now lives in the suburbs. He is a philosophy graduate from the University of London, and hold a masters degree in Social Science Research with the University of East London. He has had a varied career outside of authorship, from working from an early age in kitchens and then bars and cafes in London and the South of France, working the vendange in France, picking melons and fruit, working in Hotels in Aylah Eilat, He has travelled widely for pleasure and work, to the US and Far East, and looking to reach Australia on the Bucket List.

After an apprenticeship in plumbing and heating engineering after leaving school, he discovered he did not have the head for numbers and calculations, or the back and knees for this work. He had visited Greece and studied philosophy and history through the Encyclopaedia Britannica in the Library there, completing an education incomplete of at least this aspect of knowledge and life.

He went to London University as a mature student, to continue studying philosophy. Following the attaining of this honours degree took up the training, and profession, of Social Work.

His writing reflects a deep passion for people and humanity, in the smallest as well as the greatest achievements and failures of our species. He embraces the philosophies, as well as the mythology and religions of peoples across the globe, their politics and economics (in so far as anyone can claim to have any grasp over these latter aspects); and the social and family ties of understanding and compassion, which span all of his works to date.

His three works published so far are: Walter Mepham (a first world war (his own) family saga); WarFair4 (a novel); EarthCentre (an epic prose or graphic poem subtitled: An Anthropic Odyysey) and Universal Verses 1-3 (a continuation of EarthCentre:The End of the Universe).

All, apart from Walter Mepham, are awaiting final editing and completion through 2014-15, and may only be seen on Smashwords currently.
