I'm in my late seventies, and I've been writing as long as I can remember. I've had nothing published, but I've self-published a book of poetry. I'm happily married to Toni, and we have tow children and four grandchildren.

About Me
Simon Charles Page was born in Romford, Essex in 1970 and grew up with a love of football, film, frolicking and females (the priority of the four 'F's reversed during his teenage years). After attending three different senior schools, Simon decided that it wasn't a good idea to turn up for his GCE's and bunked off to head for the workplace as a carpet fitter, only to find the YTS scheme waiting with twenty something quid a week and a clip 'round the ear for cutting carpet 'very wonky'. Simon describes the next ten years of his working life in grim fashion: 'I've worked as a telesales 'thingy' (eww), vending machine salesman (spit), insurance clerk (snore), debt collector (ouch), recruitment consultant (I liked that one) and a mortgage broker (I worked for sharks and didn't last long).' Things were to change drastically in 1996, when Simon decided to become a 'real' student and take a B.A. Hons. Theology degree somewhere outside of Essex, called 'The North'. Simon began to ask questions about this strange new land called 'The North' and was told there was something called the North-South divide. Apparently, things were so bad 'oop North', that folk were likely to be poorer, live off a diet of mushy peas and statistically, die younger. Whether that was down to the mushy peas, Simon wasn't quite sure - that was until he started to do his research. After reading about an imaginary line called the equator, Simon mistook the North-South divide (which isn't an exact line either) for the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Things seemed to match at first. After all, the Northern Hemisphere had more pollution due to population density (which Simon believed must contribute to the poor health in 'The North' and not just the mushy peas). Concerned that he might be sharing a million acres of land with a handful of infected people and the odd tiger or elephant, Simon was relieved to discover that his move to new pastures wouldn't involve a Trans-Atlantic flight, but a car journey up the M6 motorway to a grassy dwelling called Cheshire. Simon finished his degree in 1999 and until 2007, worked as a Church Minister in Merseyside and Blackpool. In more sophisticated company, Simon explained that he resided in Southport, near Royal Birkdale and when in Lancashire, he lived a few cosy miles from Royal Lytham. Simon has since been involved in a number of creative projects, patented a new invention with a good friend; launched a number of businesses and of course, written a comedy novel called 'Missing Gretyl', along with the satirical parody of David Cameron called: 'The Inside Scoop: The Secret Journal of a Prime Minister'. He has two lovely boys called Ruben and Freddie and has been married for nearly fifteen years to a beautiful lady called Solana.

About Me

My first book was published by Glory to Glory publications in August 2012!!! Such an exciting moment!! YAY!!!

So - as a member of ACW, I obviously love to write... I also love to organise. So that's what I do, in a nutshell.

Until my debut book, I have been writing a Christian Teenage Girl's Magazine called SHINE which is published and distributed free of charge to girls accorss the world. It's such an honour to be able to use my hands to encourage others.

I also work for a Christian organisation - CMJ - and have the pleasure of writing for the website - as the website manager, and organising the annual Conference. My two favourite activities combined into the perfect job role!!! :-)

I am blessed with a wonderful husband and a gorgeous stepson (part time, as he lives with his mum). We love to take advantage of being so close to Sherwood Forest and the Derbyshire Peaks!

About Me

Hello all,

I have a trilogy of Christian fiction out there, self-published with Authors Online, 'Leviathan with a Fish-hook (2009), 'The Monster Behemoth' (2010), and 'The Land of Nimrod' (2011.) It looks as if I was hard at work for three years but as you may have guessed it took a lot longer than that! I call it 'realistic contemporary British Christian fiction for adults', and I'm trying to write about people living the Christian life in our times -  warts, doubts, fears and all. There are reviews and excerpts on Amazon and on my website www.slrussell.co.uk


A fourth novel, a stand-alone this time, in a similar genre was published in November 2014. It's called 'A Shed in a Cucumber Field' and can be found in all the usual places, both as a paperback and an e book. Following the sad demise of Authors Online all my books are now under the umbrella of New Generation Publishing. I have recently finished the first draft of no. 5, so some of next year will be spent editing.

I worship at St Margaret's High Halstow in North Kent where I am the organist.

About Me

Hello, I joined ACW in 2014.  I have been writing on and off all my life. Minutes of meetings, press reports for the WI, announcements for the parish magazine. I did a correspondence course on writing for children around twenty years ago and won a prize at county level in a WI competition with a children's story. However I became discouraged by repeated rejections.

My interests include science and languages. I am married with two grown-up children (both married) and three grandchildren. I returned to writing in 2012 by starting a blog. Now I have three blogs and enough material for more than one book. 

I am also working on a book.

I attend a 'local' group of Christian writers and hope to meet some more ACW members later this year.

About Me

What started with course work, quickly moved to a blog, a passion, a desire and a book, Now here I am with all that passion for God and for writing, bringing the two together and using his gifts to me and as a gift to others.

Well that's the idea anywhere, I feel excited, inadequate, enthused and doubtful as I am really just starting on this new journey, but with support, good friends and a lot of prayer, I believe God can take me anywhere if I let him

About Me

Born and brought up in Jersey C.I. but half Swiss and now living in Switzerland, married to a Finn, 4 grown-up kids. I studied physics in London, worked in IT, now as a technical editor.

Recently, I got the crazy idea of writing a historical novel set on Elba in the sixth century. I want to build a subtle Christian message into the book but not promote it a a Christian novel.
