About the Book

Before Me depicts the painful journey of despair and disillusionment from the tumultuous shores of sanity to the sanctity of irrational beliefs, while crossing man made divides that weave in a complex maze distorting familiarity and challenging the reality of experience.

Our traveller endures ridicule and torment as in desperation; he searches for a conclusion to his own story that becomes subjected to the shadows of past fears which haunt the troubled mind that unwittingly seeks to find solace by disingagement from rationality.

About the Author

Colin was born in Kent in 1948. He spent much of his early life living in Germany, Malaya and Singapore, returning to England in 1960. Four years later he enlisted in the Royal Navy and travelled extensively around the world on various vessels. His writing began in earnest in 1978 with his first collection of poems being published. Since then, he has continued to write both novels and further poems although this has been done whilst engaged in other forms of work.

In 1979 he entered into social work and continued writing, some of this has been work related although poetry has always been an avenue to express feelings either of his own or ascertaining to others with whom he has had dealings with. In 1986 Colin returned with his family to live in Kent and has continued on with his writing and his new found passion for painting.
