About Me

My name is Ali Hobson (or Alison if I'm being told off). I am married to the lovely David and we live in the depths of the beautiful Dorset countryside. I have just finished a degree in Applied Theology and have joined the ACW as I'm trying to explore whether God is calling me to write.

About Me

I write mainly poetry and publish under my maiden name of Stedman. My first collection Faith Hope Love was published in 1987 by New Wine Press with a foreword by Steve Chalke. Then while I was nursing with The Leprosy Mission they published The Song Of The Sparrow in 1991 with a foreword by Diana Princess of Wales. Several poems from this collection have been used in other anthologies. My third collection Raised From Dust (foreword by Wendy Craig)  has just been published in 2016 by Onwards and Upwards and released into UK book shops in April 2017.

I am married to Bill (a Baptist Minister) and we have 2 teenage boys. We moved to the Isle of Man in 2012.

About Me

I write fairytales with bite as short stories, novels and some scripts.  My favourite authors are Jane Austen, P.G. Wodehouse and Terry Pratchett. 

I have had short stories published online at Shortbread Short Stories, cafelit and Alfie Dog Fiction. 

I have had stories published in anthologies published by Bridge House Publishing (A Helping Hand in Alternative Renditions) and Marit Meredith (Shambelurkling). 

I have also had a limerick published by Iron Press in their Limerick Nation compilation, which covers the UK in five line verse!

I am an Associate Member of the Society of Authors and am a long term subscriber to Writers' News, Mslexia, the P.G. Wodehouse Society (UK) and, of course, ACW.

I flesh out my fantasy world on my websites:-

I have only had the pleasure of being able to get to one ACW Writing Day so far (where I learned how to set up a website via Weebly!).  I hope to get to more days in due course.

About Me

I have been a Christian, along with my wife Adrienne, for over 30 years. From my teen years I habitually wrote down my thoughts, and when God introduced Himself to me at work in 1981 my diaries turned into spiritual journals.  

These journals are now forming the foundations for books, connected with my ministry, 'Work with God' (since 2000), which identifies, equips and deploys those called to build Christ's Kingdom in the business and working community.

A while ago Adrienne and I were praying together about writing books and The Lord gave me a name, 'Christian Writers Association'. After our time of prayer I asked her whether it existed. Not knowing, we googled the name and found you!

So, I'm trusting God's leading that my membership will equip me to get my books into the hands of those God has waiting for them, to inspire and enable them to work with God to build His precious kingdom on earth.

'Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.'

(Matthew 6:10)

About Me

I took up writing in the mistaken belief that it would be easier than a real job (it isn’t). Hence, as well as being the author of 4 novels under my own name, and ghostwriter of several more (which annoyingly pay more), and several short stories, I am also a technical writer amongst other skills.

I live in Abingdon and worship at Christ Church on Long Furlong. My homepage is at www.benjeapes.com.

About Me

Clive was born on the 20th March 1943 in Shrewsbury and was named after Lord Robert Clive (Clive of India) who has a statue in the town square. Clive’s schooling began at Meole Brace School then following moves: two schools in Tredegar; and finally Canton High School, Cardiff.

Clive had a career in computing for over 40 years attaining MBCS CITP AMBCS status. This resulted in him working for many companies and living in different parts of the United Kingdom.

Clive was fourteen when he heard the ‘Magic Camel’, nonsense story and has been telling the story ever since. This encouraged him to develop his own stories for his work with children, young people, and also adults.

Clive spent a major part of his spare time involved with children and youths in various organisations the main one being Boys’ Brigade. Clive had the occasional visits to schools to promote the youth activities by taking school assemblies. 

At a Christian conference a number of years ago Clive shared a couple of his stories with others over dinner, and a minster said he should write them down and publish them. Clive finally decided to start this in 2013 when he published, ‘Clive the Magic Camel at the Zoo’.

Clive stories are enjoyed by all ages and had to make a decision on the age group for his books. He finally decided to write each story as a reader for those in the earlier stages of reading, thinking that the appeal of the short stories would encourage them to finish the book and read it often. Each story has a moral and the story can also be read to younger children by displaying the illustrations to keep them interested, or to older groups to aid discussions on the moral.

Clive has been visiting schools reading his published books, and running Story Building classes and workshops. These have currently been mainly with Key Stages 1 and 2. Clive uses A4 illustrations for small groups and PowerPoint for larger groups and assemblies.

Clive has also been involved with: Key Stage 3 classes in secondary schools covering the whole process of story development, through writing and publication; toddler groups; adult meetings e.g. W.I.; Church services, and Christian outreach events.

Clive is available for: Book Readings; Story Writing classes; Book Signings; Literary events; Public Speaking.

About Me

Born in 1958 in Liverpool, England. I was taught by the same English teacher as John Lennon, albeit years later, at Dovedale Road School. I am married and have three grown up boys. My wife Julie is a nurse.

I wrote my first indie novel, The Kestrel Strategy in 2011. The Metasis Strategy followed a year later. The Wrendian - Absolution, was completed in August 2014. My latest novel, The Wrendian - Red Corn, was completed May 2015.

Part of the proceeds from sales go to my fathers church, St Agnes. A church that taught me right from wrong. How to respect religion but question the various beliefs. It also taught me there's only good and evil on this earth regardless of which religious doctrine people follow.

 

I am honoured you have taken the time to read this and I thank you for your interest.

Colin B Leonard.
