About the Book

This book incorporates the division of memories from an imperialist world where because of circumstances, the boundaries of military rule became blurred. This account deals with the rational of thought that carried casualties from comflict areas and deposited them in hostile safe zones, where innocence is lost and fought for by children who nurture the will to survive that, which they cannot comprehend.

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 & his new found passion for painting.
