Oliver’s business commitments are winding down to a close just in time for Xmas. Retirement should allow more time for writing, and his many trips to Canada, Asia, Africa and Australia in the last couple of years have given him lots of new ideas. In fact, in tandem with some revealing ancestry research in England and Ireland, there is the germ of a story line which could pitch him into tales of lords and ladies, new world settlers, convicts and shocking colonial treachery. As a new genre for him, ‘historical fiction’ would be an interesting challenge, and it’s a popular and very competitive sector. Let’s see. Perhaps another few trips are required first!

Oliver is a graduate in Mechanical Engineering and German
