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

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.
