About Me

I'm retired, living in Bournemouth, and at long last I have the opportunity to take writing a little more seriously.  So let's see where it leads . . .

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
I have known the Lord as my Savior since I was 5. Now I am 56. In all these years I have found HIM all suffient to meet my needs. My wife, Ruth and I have raise 2 wonderful children. They are now both out on their own. I have always been fascinated by good conversations. I believe that good story-telling is part of that. I have not published anything yet. I hope to refine my craft through the assistance I can receive here at ACW. I also look forward to assisting anyone else by reviewing their works. So let me know if you have anything you would like me to look over.

About Me

Between 2002 and 2007, I spent five years as a  part-time Freelance Wiriter exploring different writing formats, firstly in Orkney and then in Devon. During that time, I was a member of ACW and covered jouralism (press and radio), crossword compiling, publicity planning, hymn witing, study notes, stand-up comedy, poetry and blogging.

Returning to a full-time IT role, I supported my local church editing the weekly newsletters, designing and building their website, and organising their publicity team. I also preached regularly and lead adult and children's Bible studies.

After 2013, I developed psoriatic arthriris in my ankles, knees, wrists and one elbow, which also caused severe fatigue, so I stopped writing formally while I concentrated on having enough energy to get to work every day. However, I continued to write a personal blog and communicate with friends and family via Facebook (where I rediscovered ACW), and more recently created a blog to write about faith topics.

After medication and controlled exercise has helped to reduce the joint stiffness and general fatigue, I'm looking at returning to writing more formally, starting with crossword compiling and poetry. More ideas welcome.

About Me

I'm the author of the D.I. Costello series of murder mysteries published by Lion Fiction.

Also, for several years until recently, I wrote for the pilgrimage handbook of the (Westminster) diocese to Lourdes.

I'm currently beginning work on an exciting new project, a new series of novels, which I hope will run concurrently with the Costello books.
