As many of you may have noticed, we have a new contributing author here at All Things Writing----Mr. Clive West! His Thursday blog posts have been informative and insightful about the world of writing. Here is a little more about him:
Clive West was born in the West Country of England in the early 60's. He was educated at a traditional English public school before going on to university to study civil engineering. Over the years, he has worked as a civil engineer, tutor of maths and science, schools quiz-master, employment agency boss, and writer.
His work includes a collection of short stories with twists called Hobson's Choice (also available in print), a full-length novel called 'The Road' about the consequences of corruption on ordinary people and an accessible job hunting interview guide (based on his years of experience as the boss of an employment agency).
He has also written a book about lymphedema. This is a disfiguring, life-threatening and incurable disease he now suffers from and which his experience shows that most fellow patients have (like him) been abandoned by their respective health services.
Clive now lives in a rebuilt farmhouse in the Umbrian region of Italy along with Damaris, his writer wife of 22 years and their three rescue dogs. Apart from his fictional work, Clive also writes commercial non-fiction on a variety of topics but especially relating to business and employment. He and Damaris run an indie publishers called Any Subject Books Ltd – www.anysubject.com

Clive is now disabled but, aside from his writing, he also enjoys playing the keyboard, listening to music and reading.

I've recently started reading Clive's novel, The Road and so far, I am loving it. One of the things I'm excited to promote on this blog is Clive's upcoming book tour through Virtual Book Cafe. Here is the link to that website so that you can check out his tour stops and other musings on writing.
