William H. Wakefield


Born in Dublin, Ireland in 1953.

I have been and am a teacher, writer, historian and actor. I taught English, Theatre Studies and Religious Studies in Yorkshire, UK, for 20 years. I have a wide ranging historical knowledge with an emphasis on 11th and 12th century Ireland, The American Civil War 1861-1865 and the German/Russian conflict of 1941-1945.

I arrived at being a writer via a quite circuituous route! In the 1970's I worked in catering including a spell as chef in the famous Captain America's Cookhouse of Dublin. I was a political activist until I got sense and moved to England in 1979! there I worked in construction for many years until I began teaching and acting.

Rugby has been a lifelong passion of mine since I began playing competetively as a school boy culminating in my playing for Headingley R.U.F.C. (now Leeds Rugby) in the 1980's.

I am a brother of the poet George Wakefield and half a son and a step daughter.

I live in Dublin and am very appreciative of the medium of epublishing and the attendant social media that allows me to engage with my readers.
