From across the pond we would like to introduce our colleague Mr. Rik Stone. Rising above circumstances, his success story is remarkable. Now, in his own words...
Rik grew up amidst the slum-lands of fifties North East England, and left school at fifteen without any academic qualifications.
He worked in the shipyards on a local river and later went into the Merchant Navy and then, following that, worked in quarries in South East England.
The time came he yearned for change. Studying was the only option that was realistic, so he worked through the low level stuff and on to a BSc. degree in mathematics and computing.
But it was fiction writing that always been his want and after an early retirement at fifty years of age, he was able to pursue his dream seriously. To the point, he is now on the brink of publishing the third novel in the Birth of an Assassin series. Watch out for The Man in the Blue Fez.
Be sure to drop by and check out his works on the BROWSE for Books carousels.
Thanks for your support and.....blog later...Chris (RC).
